Re: Compiling XFree86 -- no makefile in doc directory...?
Sorry to hear problems continue. The version I built was
xfree86_188.8.131.52-4.dsc debian 2.0 CD ( from linux central) The ftp
site is now 2.0r2 and X is 184.108.40.206-1 I think . The changelog does
say that xfree86 was updated with an upstream patch. Maybe there's
a new problem. :( Don't know what else to say.
