XDM and Noritake
Sorry if i seem to be flooding this mailing list with problems, this is
my first week/weekend where i have time to work on making this box
better, so i want to take advantage of it.
I attempted to install XFree86 4.2 on my Debian Woody system, i had 4.0
before that. The install of XF went really well, i was impressed, but
something happened which i didnt think of earlier. I hadnt upgraded XDM
also, so i had XDM 4.0 with XF4.2, and that just didnt work. Or atleast
it seemed to not work. XDM was complaining about the lack of
libXdmGreet.so , which i was told is not a file that belongs on a Debian
system. To remedy this i tried to install the only XDM 4.2 binary i
could find which happened to be an rpm from rpmfind.net, i installed it
but now i have the same problem. I looked up the missing file on google
and i found an rpm (i feel so dirty using rpms) which said contained it,
but alien cant install it.
Has anyone been able to successfully get XDM going with XF4.2 on a
Debian Alpha system?
Now for a slightly more technical problem. Well, not really a problem,
just something that irritates me a bit. If i do "cat /proc/cpuinfo", it
tells me i have a Noritake processor, which is fine with me. But when i
build my kernel for the Noritake instead of Generic, it builds it for
EV6 which i dont have, and then the kernel isnt bootable. I tried
almost all the processor types and i have yet to find one that boots.
Is this a common problem? This is a Digital Server 3000, it has a
500Mhz 21164 EV56 cpu.
