AccelX and Xfree together

       I`ve just got hold of AccelX2.1 but already have xbase installed for
   Debian1.2.8 . Is it OK to install AccelX in as well as xbase? If not, 
   what happens to the dependancies on xbase?

This will work fine.  AcceleratedX is an X server, and will not work
unless the rest of XFree86 is present, so you must install xbase,
xfonts, etc. to use it.

You will need to install an XFree86 server in order to satisfy the
package dependencies that require an X server.  Other than that, it's
not important.  In the future, you will have to be careful not to
update the XFree86 server package accidentally, because this will
overwrite the AcceleratedX server.

The easiest thing to do is install an appropriate server from XFree86,
then install AcceleratedX.  (Use "xserver-vga16" if you can't find
anything better.)  AcceleratedX will rename "/usr/X11R6/bin/X" to
"/usr/X11R6/bin/X.LINUX" and install itself as "/usr/X11R6/bin/X".

One other thing to be careful of: you _must_ install the
"termcap-compat" package before installing AcceleratedX.  The
installation program depends on it, and if it isn't there, the
installation will fail without an error message.
