i recently helped someone with a broken X instal on an apus box.
The reason it didn't work was the absence of the noint10 flag in the device
section for the glint driver. Is there a quick way i can ask him to test this
out, so if it is still broken in -11, you can add it in, so this don't happen
in the future ?
