	The AfterStep apps are no longer shipped with the main program
rpm.  Rpms of these programs can be found in the typical rpm locations or
in the old AfterStep-APPS rpm.

! up popped these two new pager's that were not swallowed in wharf ( one
! titled work and the other pager which was 4 "works" for work,www,mail, and
! games....... great dont want it that way... I want it swallowed in wharf
! the way it was..

	If you maid changes to /usr/X11R6/share/afterstep, you old config
files should have been backed up in /usr/X11R6/share/afterstep_old, or
something similar.

! Now since I have a copy of wharf in my own ~./GNUstep... dir it should
! override the new wharf which it does but like I said things are missing...

	What things, applications or configurations?

! Also when I minimixe icons now.... there is no tile anymore just the
! icon...what happened....can I still use tiles....

	The rpm is compiled with the new no-iconbackground concept, if you
want this capability, you need to compile from the source.

! I compared the new wharf file and my old wharf file no where can I see
! where the "look" for the applets but my wharf isn't finding them and the
! new one find some albeit different ones than I had.... yet the line  where
! they are both calling the same thing ( namely asclock ) are identical and
! yet my wharf doesn't work?

	Again, the apps aren't shipped.  Try a 'which asclock', does it
show as being still installed on your system?

! plus now I cant seem to find any of the applets on my system...even though
! they must be somewhere since the default wharf finds them but mine
! doesn't.
! I'm quite confused, cant seem to figure out where its loooking or finding
! such things.... also the pager how do I get it back to normal?

	The path to Modules (amoung other paths are in th ebase.#bpp,
where # is your olordepth.  If you are speaking of the actual apps
(asclock, asmail, etc) see above.

! I've read the faq...doesn't help.../usr/local/bin is the first thing in my
! path statement so it shouldn't be the problem either?
! Anyone got any ideas?
! also anyone know how a page that describes in excrutiaing detail the
! config files for wharf and afterstep....

	The man pages are up to date and extremely acurate and helpful,
man afterstep, man Wharf, man Pager, etc.
