Strange Characters in X11

Strange Characters in X11

Post by Paolo Vitiell » Fri, 24 Apr 1998 04:00:00

I Have this problem:
When I start X11 from my system everything goes well, except the fact
that all the characters on my screen are corrupted.
This problem remains when I go out X11 and start any virtual console.
The only way I have to overcome this corruption is to reboot the system.
I have slackware 2.0.30 , a TSENG ET4000W32i card and a CORDATA multi-
sync monitor.
Can anyone solve my problem?
Thanks in advance

1. Upgrading to 4.6.2...X11 config in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 or /etc/X11?

During the next week, I plan to upgrade my machine to 4.6.2.  When I
installed the installation of X11 that I have now, I built it from
source with the ports tree, and it put the config files in the normal
location /usr/X11R6/lib/X11.
        However, I'm aware that in the past, FreeBSD has packaged the
X configs to go into /etc/X11, and I also remember that back when I was
running 4.4 on a different machine, the port asked you before the build
which of the two locations you'd like your X configs to go to.
        What I'm wondering is this:  If I do the upgrade, and have it
upgrade my X-Window installation, is it going to be smart enough to see
which place to look for my configuration?  I like freedom of choice with
things like this, but I hope the package tools are keeping all this
freedom in mind at upgrade time.

Anybody done the upgrade already on a machine with the configs in /usr?
