I have X 4.4.99 at least, working perfectly fine on 164LX, using the
sources from Marv with an nvidia fx5200.
I tried to build kde from the meta packagtes, using the last pkgssrc
update. Did not work, failed on accessibility and some other modules.
I had tried to build kdebase, and afer 3 days, it came back with a
faillure. Figure that was my config. This gave me a stop after about 15
minutes. No big thing to me, just a data point to the crew.
Mounted a drive as /usr/src, just to free up space on the /usr to allows
pkgsrc to have plenty of space. figured that might have something to do
wit hteh long attempt to build kdebase.
I am now trying to do gnome build from meta package. I think it is still
running after 40 minutes or so on 164lx 600, with 1GB ram. Going to go
check on it. I set it up securely so I can't remotely log in and check
on it. Paranoia is such fun.
The invocation of the law of unintended consequences.
