Well, on a stock 3000T xv, as snarfed from uni-regensburg, locks
the server up solid. This is on a current -current. I also
can't use xinit on either of 3 3000's running a current -current
as the resulting server, both X11R5 and X11R6 servers, can't
access the mouse or keyboard. Has anybody else seen this?
Do the Xmono and Xdaniver servers need a special kernel setup
when run under current?
Overall the Xdaniver server is WONDERFUL tho! I would ask that
the fputc(stderr,7); be added to the bell routine tho so the
server can at least beep. I did this with the Xmono server
Also, is the source available for the Xdaniver server? I like to
be able to rebuild things from scratch...
