Hi All,

I just installed xmonad on a new Ubuntu 9.04 system and was hoping it
would be quick to setup. I killed metacity and tried to run xmonad
from the command line. I get the following error and not sure what it
could be due to.  I am using ghc 6.10.3 and seem to have all the
necessary packages.

Would be great if I can get a hint of what is going on.

$ xmonad/home/pprakash/.xmonad/xmonad-i386-linux: executeFile: does
not exist (No such file or directory)
Xlib:  extension "XINERAMA" missing on display ":1004.0".
xmonad: XMonad/Main.hsc:(69,14)-(71,41): Irrefutable pattern failed
for pattern (Data.Maybe.Just nbc_)
