   I'm a beginner at NetBSD on the Amiga. I would like
information about X installation on my system. I currently have
NetBSD v1.1 installed on an A2000 w/GVP combo '030, w/16 Megs
RAM, 2 Megs chip, and Spectrum running CyberGraphX 2.14. I've
tried accessing '' but the connection is
painfully slow with delays of 1 to 5 minutes between commands
(I'm in California, USA).
   I've been getting all the current NetBSD files from
'', however, I see no listing for X11 for the
Amiga. Can someone give me the current status of X on the Amiga,
where to get it, and tell me if there is a comprehensive
installation FAQ for beginners like me. The 'GateWay' CD-ROM had
a FAQ and istallation scripts by Hubert Feyrer, dated Sept. 25,
1994. Is there anything like this that is current?

Thank You,
Ola Olsson
