Wow. I'm so impressed. I've upgraded to 3.9.18 - no problems. Just did:
# cd /usr/
# mv X11R6 X11R6.old
# cd /etc/
# mv X11 X11.old
# cd ~/unarc/xc
# make World
# make install
Then tweaked the config file for 1600x1200 support, and edited "startx"
to add a "+bs" to the "serverflags" variable. It's considerably faster for
interactive stuff. Uses about 12-15MB less RAM too.
Anyone know does the GLX stuff "just work" or, what ?
