RE: XF86Config not allowing max resolution and mouse wheel doesn't work
I'm a bit new at NetBSD- as you can tell. How do I upgrade to X11R7 from
XFree86R4? Yes, I subscribed to the NetBSD regular mailing list for amd64-
should I reinstall using x86_64?- but it was bounced and rejected.
Any and all help is appreciated. You can also send me personal emails for
howto's if you want.
Thanks for the help so far.
