I may be asking the wrong questino here :) Before I reinstalled this
week, xfs was always running. After reinstall, it isn't. But then, i
also had xfree3.3 then, as well. I'm wondering if xfs *should* be
running under a default setup. If it should, i need to fix, preferably
to debian default. If not, it would seem that I need to make the
adjustments to handle it (ulp :).
with macbsd, i had to manually launch xfs, then xdm (never could get the
rc stuff to do both of them). SPecifically what I'm observing:
macbsd, no xfs, running lyx on a alpha: long freeze.
above, with xfs on local machine: no freeze; system usable while
xfs hogs cycles
at alpha: fast :)
linux, no xfs: lyx locally, no xfs, long freeze
above, same lyx on alpha: no freeze, but sluggish a while.
if I telnet to another machine, and launch an xapp on my display,
shouldn't it be using the local font server, if any, unless told
