Just a couple of quick questions:
I'm running a 1.0 kernel (not mrg - it crashes on me) on my IIx.
I downloaded X (as made available by Brad - thanks !!!), and it seems to
run, sort of.
I'll admit it, I'm a novice X user (at best), so I just expected
to type startX, and that it would come up all nice and pretty. Here's
what I get:
A hatched background, and a single console window.
Pressing the mouse button (standard Apple ADB mouse), or either
of the 2nd and 3rd button equivalents (option --> and option <--) does
nothing. I can type commands into the console (like xclock), but they
always come up in the upper left hand corner of the window, in front of
the console. At this point I can't regain use of the console until I
control-c out of whatever I ran.
I get the X cursor over the background, and the arrow cursor
(with text input ability) when I'm over the console, but I can't get
Can someone help me ??? Or is there any help ??? Do I need to
climb a mountain and sit with an X guru ??? Or will a couple of minutes
with a bowl of chicken soup cure my ills ???
