Now that I have a working kernel (thanks guys!!!), I'm trying to get the X
distribution to work. So far, no luck. But it seems that either I'm doing
something wrong, or the README.X11R6 file is wrong. Probably the former...
As explained in the instructions, I copied the X.11Mar95.tgz file into
/usr, then typed
tar xzvpf X.11Mar95.tgz
set path=($path /usr/X11R6)
and got the response "command not found". On a lark, I typed
set path=($path /usr/X11R6/bin)
and it then worked. At least, it found the command. Shortly thereafter, I
got the message:
ld.so: xinit: libXmu.so.6.0: No such file or directory
I poked around the imake files for a while, and then, again on a lark,
copied this file it was looking for into /usr/lib. Then, it got a bit
farther, and eventually asked for another file -- libXt.so.6.0. I also had
to copy over libX11.so.6.0 and libXext.so.6.0.
Anyway, after copying all these files, I got the following error message,
which strikes me as similar to the one Daniel Risacher encountered last
week or so when he tried to get this to work:
ld.so: warning: libm.so.0.0: minor version >=1 expected, using it anyway
ld.so: Undefined symbol "__sys_errlist" in X:X
[...pause for about 10 seconds...]
xinit: Interrupted system call (errno 4): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
Any hints on how to proceed from here? Furthermore, what exactly am I
doing wrong that prevents me from running (even if it doesn't work) without
copying files around?
