This ISN'T what you want
Guys, this is no longer the standard X. In
fact, I'm not even sure this entry is correct -- I
don't think the license for this XFree86 is OSI
approved these days.
The X11 project, at
http://freshmeat.net/projects/x11/ is the new
one that distros like Mandrake, Gentoom
Debian, and OpenBSD will be including soon.
Get it instead, if your intention is to be
'ahead' rather than 'different' :)
Can someone add a "X11 for MacOS X" branch ?
It would be handy to have a "X11 for MacOS X" branch at freshmeat for "manage dependencies"
of X11 based MacOSX projects (cause X11 is not
part of the default MacOSX system).
"Apple announces XFree86-based X11 for MacOS X"
v4.0 Stable release??
I thought it was going to be a lot better, but it just doesnt like my Cirrus Logic GD5446, I havent been able to adjust the refresh rates to set up a 1024x768x16bpp screen, the web page says the card is supported but xf86config says it isnt, it was pretty easy to set up this card with 3.3.6, what happened here? stable? hmmmm...
i just updated to 4.0 (binary release from ftp.xfree.org) and i must say i am impressed. it's much faster for my card and i really like the silk cursor! have not tested the GL stuff yet, but i like the new ver so far...

Great...Good...Wonderful...now what about RPMS?
This is all good and great, but what about the RPMS? Does anyone know of anyplace a person could get the RPMS? I looked all over the net and came up with nothing.
If you're not ready to upgrade, but want full ATI Rage 128 Support...
If you don't want to download all of 4.0 for full ATI Rage 128 support, I have posted the binaries for 3.3.6 with the latest patches compiled for FreeBSD 3.4. It seems that XFree86.org has posted the these patches in source, but their binary package still contains the unpatched servers. Get the 3.3.6-p3 (3.3.6 plus fix-01-r128, fix-02-svr4, fix-03-mmap) full package (http://node.to/hacks) or just the server binaries (http://node.to/hacks/src/X11R6-3.3.6-p3-freebsd/bin/).
Anyone have any suggestions?
I know multihead with multiple matrox cards is supported (well, in fact), but what about with my G400/MAX? I've been trying to get it set up, and I can't get the second head up. Also, I can't find the docs for getting the glide driver running (I have a Voodoo2 also).
What about ix86-linux-libc5?
Is it just me, or did they really drop libc5 support?
Getting there, some stuff doesn't seem to work yet
Well, I got 3.9.17 compiled after hacking out the DOCSDIR
references, not what you'd expect after waiting this long.
Loads of openGL stuff isn't working and needs hacking.
I managed to get some of the xscreensaver openGL demo's compiled
but most of them need glu stuff that I can't find implemented yet.
Performance on a TNT2 isn't what I'd expect of it yet, but it's a new
card, so optimalisation may take some time.
