Hiya Folks,

i am pleased to announce that Mel and me have been able to let XFree 4.0.2
work on Alpha Personal Workstation machines. Those are SRM based 500/600
Mhz 21164a machines on a `pc style' hardware and PCI.

card (3D labs chipset) and Mel is working on getting XFree 4.2.0 working 
too. We'll try to get the patches in such a state that they can be 
committed to the source tree soon.

For advice and testing please refer to either Mel ( or 
me ...
