Re: Fwd: Need X testers on Alpha. I think we've got it this time.

Yes we exist, especially since FreeBSD dropped Alpha (Boo Hiss!), I think NetBSD gained a few more hobbyists.

I can try that on ev4 (mustang) with a pci 8600gs (evga) and a pci ati 4350 (his) later this weekend. Possibly also on ev67 if I can figure out why the es40 won't boot netbsd off the cd any more with 5.x where 4.0 did so I can upgrade the netbsd disk (VMS still runs fine).

Might take a while to build.

Subject: Need X testers on Alpha. I think we've got it this time.

I need a few people to test X on Alpha. Michael Cree found what we
believe is the commit that broke X and also provided a patch to fix
some undefined references. We just need to confirm that these changes
make X work again and then we'll get them pulled into master and the
1.7 branch in time for 1.7.1

I'd especially like testers for:
- Radeon, varying generations, both user mode setting and kernel mode setting
- Matrox

Testers on non-BWX alphas would also be quite nice, since the last
round of email seemed to show that you do in fact exist.

My xserver repo is available at
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~mattst88/xserver/ and contains the
patches we think will fix it.

Hats off to Michael Cree. :)
