It depends on the amount of work needed for that; for the time being I am happy using the old release of X11R6 from NetBSD 7.2; it works well on 9.x, bringing AGA 256 color support via Xamiga. However I do not think it is something to depend on for the future.

If it is too much effort bringing it to netbsd-9, at least to me it is not a problem waiting to netbsd-10.

I was pending to repartition my Amiga hard drive and reinstalling NetBSD via network; so it seems like a good timing to try netbsd-10. Can you confirm this [1] is the distribution to use?

Also, not related but I am curious about it: there is a GENERIC kernel tgz in the sets folder [2], why is that? How is that one different from [3]? It is just curiosity, as I use the WSCONS one [4].
