Ok lets get this strait: What is in your /usr/X11R6/bin dir?
Do you have an Xmacppc binary? What are you using to start XFree86? Does
Xmacppc not work?
In my XFree86 setup I use startx which starts up Xmacppc.
I have no idea how else you will get it going. I have read the NetBSD
FAQ on XFree86, they say the "How to make an XFree86 Config file" is
I don't think you will get it working without Xmacppc...
Well this is my twisted understanding of the workings of it. I
understand how you feel about not getting X going.
