I've used netbsd for about 3 years now as a workhorse home server (NAT,
dhcpd, etc) and of course never even installed X as it wasn't needed. Now
trying to get X going on another machine and I have some questions.
1) I use this command to get the sources:
cvs -d $CVSROOT update -rnetbsd-1-6 -PAd xsrc
but as I just found out, there are actually two sets (xc, xfree/xc). What
would be a better command so that it only took everything in xsrc/ minus
xsrc/xc? It would save space and time.
2) There doesn't seem to be any documentation on netbsd.org about how to go
about compiling and installing from xsrc. Am I blind? If so, please slap
and then gimme a link.
3) following from #2, just what is the proper command/procedure for
just "make build" in xsrc/xfree/xc? do I have to install it or cleandir?
At the moment my machine is NetBSD_1.6.2_RC2
thanks for any help
