      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?

your NetBSD-current and NetBSD-Amiga stuff from aka  The X11 files should be in
