I know that the same video cards that are supported under Alpha Core 1,
XFree86, are NOT supported under NetBSD. I have installed AC1 on both
164LX and DS10 boses, with ATI 7500 cards, and X works just fine.
I know now that the 7500 card (as well as others) is not supported on
DS10 or 164LX under netbsd, I know this first hand now.
SO, with the linux emulation enabled inthe kernel, can I run - probably
install from srpm- AC1 Xfree86 on those boxes under NetBSD?
Yes, I can run AC1, Yes, all kinds of tools are there, but I am still
basically a BSD guy. Some how my natrual affinity is BSD and I like the
braggin rights of having Netbsd on alpha.
