I'm having problems getting X11R6 running on my Amiga NetBSD 1.1 system.
My computer setup is as follows:
A2000 w/rev.6.2 motherboard
2 Megs chip
GVP 33 MHz '03 combo w/16 Megs RAM
GVP Spectrum w/2 Megs RAM running CyberGraphX v2.14
NetBSD boots fine, no problems there. I've installed all binaries, libs,
etc., that I'm aware of with regard to X11R6. I'm following a recently
posted 'easy' installation in conjuction with the README that resides in
the X11R6 directory itself and a readme file named 'BUGS' that also
resides in the X11R6 directory.
I have tried Xcl using the following:
softlinked Xcl -- "ln -s Xcl X"
"setenv PATH xxxxxxxxxx:/usr/local/X11R6/bin"
xserverrc = X -mono -dev /dev/gr03
xscript = #!/bin/sh
After I enter startx there is a lot of disk activity. I am eventually
left with a blinking cursor and a frozen system, forcing me to warm-boot
I have tried Xdaniver thus:
softlinked Xdaniver -- "ln -s Xdaniver X"
"setenv PATH xxxxxxxxx:/usr/local/X11R6/bin"
xserverrc = X -mono
xscript = X
After entering startx I am presented with a long list of arguments as if
I had passed a '-help' to a command. After about 10 to 15 seconds it
times out with a 'server not found'.
I'm writing this from memory so please excuse typos in the arguments.
Making 'xscript' executable was suggested by the 'BUGS' readme in the
X11R6 drawer; also the addition of '-dev /dev/gr03' to support the -mono
I'm assuming simple mistakes on my part, I am a beginner, and hope that
someone out there will see the mistake right off. I am confused by the
differences and apparent discrepancies in install procedures an presented
in the various readme files.
Thanks for patient help,
