X and window managers
well... i finally got around to having another crack at getting X working with
some qualified success this time.
update-menu is not necessarily required if you dont use twm. for instance
icewm doesnt use it during configuration therefore the bus error wasnt a
problem. (see earlier mail re compiling menu from source problem).
however - altho gpm works fine (once i put in a repeat value of around 50) the
mouse in X doesnt work well at all. jumps all over the place. i'm using the
XF86config that came zipped up (XF86Config.indy.gz?) in one of the library
directories. the pointer is config'ed to be a psaux just as it is in gpm.
it looks like the wrong driver is in place for the mouse (have observed
similar behaviour whilst config'ing i386). has anyone got the solution for
this? i've not really config'ed X from scratch before having usually managed
with a helper app and then fine tuning.
any help is much appreciated...
