How come ? Is this brokenness of XFree, or is it something that's to stay ?
On 4.0.1phase2v5 (the XFree I'm still using), it worked without it.
PS: Next week I'm getting cable modem installed, so I'll be able to package the
latest XFree from sid (or woody) on potato, anybody interested ?
Is XFree4 gonna make its way to potato ? or we'll have to wait for woody to
become stable ?
