Re: Help with X

Debian's "X" is not a symbolic link.  It is an suid wrapper for X server
binaries.  You should have modified your /etc/X11/Xserver file to use the
Accelerated-X server binary; not setup a symbolic to "X."  

I've never tried the non-demo version of the Accelerated-X server, but I
assume that they would be setup the same in a Debian installation.  I had
no problem getting the demo server working with Debian.  All I did was
modify my Xserver file.

If you want to check what libraries the Accelerated-X server is using
(i.e. linked to) then run "ldd" on the server.  Here is what I get for my
X server:

host:~> ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA 
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x4000f000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40028000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x4002b000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

You will need whatever libraries the Accelerated-X server is dynamically
linked to.

I have no idea how the full Accelerated-X installation (libs and
utilities) works with Debian.  A little while ago, someone on the list
stated that he had problems.  However, I don't recall if the problems were
ever resolved.
