X and gtk problems ...
i have been playing with the libgtk and libglib packages yesterday, and have

libgtk1.1.2) compiled them installed them, and my compile problem went away,

latest version ?).

problem when opening /dev/tty. my /dev/tty is from an earlier base tarball, but

second xterm, i got a :no more free /dev/tty" or something similar, any idea
what is wrong here ?
also when i installed the server, and asked to put in the packages XF86Config,

so i stopped the upgrade, and just left the old XF86Config in place. Is this a
