I have linked the X to the Xcfbpmax xserver executable using the command
given in README.pmax. I was finally able to get xinit to run. The error
about the font path resolved itself when I realized that I needed to do:
xinit -- -fp tcp/localhost:7100
xinit -fp tcp/localhost:7100
This did not work from the console the first time. I logged in via a
telnet session (from my PC) and killed the Xserver. I then ran xinit
again. X comes up with an xterm (no window border) and a mouse crosshair
in the middle of the screen. No response to input from mouse. I'm afraid
I'm stuck again...
I will provide more info on hardware if someone can tell me where to look
to find out what version of the baseboard video I have. I know that it is
a color board (I've been using the machine under Ultrix 4.4 for a while).
I have a color monitor on it, VR-299-DA.
