Re: Frozen Hamm...



	Still testing the xdm thing, but thanks for everyone's help on it.  (I
got to run to a remote system to test it).
	This Frozen Hamm deal is confusing me.  I tried hamm, and I know I am
not nearly as experienced with Linux as alot of people who have tried hamm, so I
got problems left and right with backward compatibility.  Actually now that I
think about ... my problem was only Accelerated X... but Accelerated X is just a
replacement for like XF86_SVGA, right?  The binaries and libs of Xfree86 3.3.2,
if I grab the ones for glibc2 should work fine, right?  Hm... although hamm is
the latest thing, I wonder if it is worth all my effort to try to go to hamm
since a lot of things I use now still seem to use libc5.  I tried glibc2 for a
little bit, performance gains did not seem to significant.
	So... basically, I read, Hamm is frozen for testing... does this mean it
IS stable?  Or they are testing it.. if they find bugs, then they will fix it,
then release it?
