AcceleratedX and xfs
That's nice to know. Maybe I should tell Xi Graphics support about this
solution. As a commercial server, I can't say for sure they'd feel
bound to honor a "standard" call. Maybe I've lived too long in an M$
dominated world. All I can say is they didn't suggest it to me when I
asked them how to make their product interact properly with XFree86 3.3.
I had no previous knowledge of xfs. If I get brave, I'll give
it a try...naah, my setup isn't broke so I'd better not try to fix it :-).
