Best way to upgrade to XFree86 3.1.2a WITHOUT a modem ?!

Post by fin » Thu, 28 Dec 1995 04:00:00

I need to upgrade to 3.1.2a (from 3.1.1), BUT I don't yet have a modem
for my PC (and probably will be unable to afford one for a month or
two).  Is there ANY way (or any place) that I can contact who can send me
the latest XFree86 on CD-ROM ?  

Or is there some kind soul out there who can put it on a CD and mail it
to me (I'll pay your costs of course) ?

please, I'm desperate to get X working before the end of the holiday!



p.s. I DO have a mac with a modem- if worse comes to worse- would it be
possible to download to my mac and transfer to my PC via disk?

Order one of the Linux distributions -- I use the Walnut Creek
Slackware distribution.  It is available for a nominal price.
Walnut Creek is on the webat

There are several other distributors as well -- InfoMagic, Red Hat, ...
