how long will we have to wait ?
but i think something went really bad with my X install, now X crashes every
time, few seconds after being launched, i will try uninstalling my gnome stuff,
and reinstalling X, any chance that it is caused by installing glibc2.1 ? i
compiled X with previous versions of glibc ?
and no, i had no time to launch myself in a more complete afb X server
