Hello, Markus Wild in particular.

I just downloaded Xamiga24-950305.gz in hope that something had been done
about my strange problem with the RetinaZ3/A4000 mousepointer only being
displayed at y & 0xff00. But that was only a dream :(. Now, X is very
boring when it is hard to tell where the mouse pointer really is, so
I would like to ask you (mw) if you could compile a version of Xamiga24
which doesn't use the hardware cursor, but uses a simple softcursor
instead. This would naturally be slower, but it would still be much better
than the current behaviour.

I have tried compiling my own X-server, but the compilation sucks unless
the whole distribution is compiled (I gather). I get lots of errors
compiling it, and I haven't even reached to the hardware dependent stuff.

So, could you please make a version of Xamiga24 without the hw-cursor of
RetinaZ3? Thanks in advance /Andreas.
