Question: Xfree 4 and startx
I have installed Xfree 4.0.2 by downloading and dpkg-ing the following
.debs, from The Pool:
no problem: "XFree86" runs and shows me a gray screen w/ pointer, I can
start enlightenment over it, etc...
BUT xinit -verbose (resp startx -verbose) show they still call X 3.3.6
!! Who of course is very unhappy, and so are gdm, xdm, etc...
What I did was a symlink from /usr/bin/X11R6/X to XFree86 and now all
works fine (startx, gdm, etc),
but I was wondering what I did wrong to get such a bizarre behavior of
I thought the install would have taken care of that!
BTW the patch for Nvidia drivers and kernel 2.4.0 is out:
I can now go to bed and feel happy to have X working, with the
accelerated driver :-)
Good Night to you all
