Re: X on DECstation 5000/240


I can report that compiling a kernel with “options INSECURE” does the trick, so now I have a DECstation 5000/240 with USB and 24 bit graphics.

(It took 24 hours for the cvs checkout of the 8.0_BETA source tree, and 36 hours to compile the kernel)

    unrelated to your problem, someone really needs to port the
    XdecNetBSD code to the xf86 server.

    this may be kern.securelevel.  it has been applid to some
    graphics cards where it wasn't previously and could have
    been used to break out of securelevel.
    can you confirm that it is 1?  if so, try a kernel with
    "options INSECURE".
