Recent -current changes made 4d20 work :-)):

  NetBSD 1.5ZA (XXXAXP) #0: Mon Dec 24 21:37:42 MET 2001
  Digital AlphaStation 500/500, 500MHz, s/n 
  8192 byte page size, 1 processor.

  avail memory = 262 MB

  tga0: interrupting at kn20aa irq 16
  wsdisplay0 at tga0 (kbdmux ignored): console (std, vt100 emulation)

Simply starting XalphaNetBSD from last 1.5Z snapshot made everthing
going! What a nice Xmas gift! :-))

Q: Moving/scrolling larger areas/windows is quite slow/delayed. Is
this a limitation of the 4d20 or the xserver?

Thanks again and Merry Xmas,
