I do not know what is the best way of migrating to XFREE86 4.1 :
- deinstall all packages which require X, move /usr/X11R6 to /usr/X11R6.old
and compile xfree 4.1 from source after downloading the tar-balls and then
reinstall all pkgs from source. I did so and had no problems compiling it on
a Cyrix PR200 MX but I got a problem with xmms package, which wanted a mesa
lib to install. I think, mesa is now included in X ?
- install over an existing installation of XFREE 3.3.6. Will all applications work with
the new shared libaries ? There may be old files like the several X-Servers, which
nobody then needs.
My system is Netbsd 1.5.1Beta2 on i386
