Hiya Simon and all who read this too,
recently i got myself an Alpha PWS 500a and after lots of trouble got it
installed even :| .... now i am trying to get X working on it but for some
reason it doenst work :( .... I didnt use the install sets for the last
time i tried the X install sets for Alpha (1.5W snapshot) there wasn't even
a Xserver in it :( ...
I've scouted some on the NetBSD ftp site and found a XF4.0.1 ? snapshot of
the X server wich had some `interesting' features... dunno what caused it
but for some reason it bombed on me a couple of times :(. I'm now trying to
get the XF4 in source tree sources to compile for Alpha but it bombs out in
inspecting the code shows that there is some code there for FreeBSD ...
but nothing for NetBSD ?
Could you or someone else please shed some light on this ? Is there
someone working on it ? Or should i just try the 1.5.1/1.5.2 Xserver?
