I'm a 'newbie' and I finally got X11R6 up and running with NetBSD 1.1. I
pieced together all the recent replies, interpolated between the
not-so-obvious instructions, and added some trial and error. Now I
finally get it! If anyone needs help installing to a Spectrum/CyberGraphX
setup I'll be happy to tell all I know.
About grfconfig; it only sets the monitor definitions at run time. Other
than creating an executable script, combining grfconfig and startx, is
there a way to permanently set grf3 with my monitor definitions? Also,
the other 'grfx' files seem to be unreadable and/or inaccessible to
grfconfig. What is there purpose?
