Re: Optimize X

Get a video card that is supported properly by XF4, and install the
proper driver for it.  Im using an ATI Radeon 32Meg SDR, with 128Megs of
RAM X is pretty damn quick for me, then again im used to running it with
48 with my other computer. :P

I hear of people putting insane amount s of memory in their alphas, like
the 1.5gigs i just read.  Where do you guys buy this memory?  Or do i
have the only alpha that doesnt take normal SD ram?

You can create 2.4.x kernel debian packages, but i would advise against
it.  Download the sources, read the kernel how-to, or ask someone to
help you out for getting into menuconfig,the rest is easy.  

Good Luck,

PS: sound still aint working, but getting closer, does anyone know if
maybe the Digital Server 3000s didnt have ISAPnP compatible
