Re: XFree 4.2.0 - again

I'm taking a pretty wild guess that you need X because of a bright shiny new
card that's only supported by 4.2 ? I ran into the same problem with a new
radeon card, and solved it the same, with one exception: I used the X server
included in the gatos [1] ati.2 driver package. This seems not to be a
radeon-specific server, but it _is_ 4.2, and works fine with the xfree86.org
binaries; furthermore it does support the authentication mechanism that's
missing from the xfree86.org binaries (which breaks xdm and others).
I'm currently running a rockstable X with xv and DRI support, on a xinerama
dualhead 19" (3200x1200) desktop, and haven't experienced any X-related
crashes yet (knocks wood).
