Unfortunately, I haven't managed to get Xinside to work right (got it
w/Caldera). I have a "new" Mach-64 card. The new beta XFree server works
perfectly with it (the old one didn't, obviously). The Accelerated X
server left dribbles all over the place -- it apparently was not sending
proper screen refresh messages to applications, and the windows weren't
being redrawn correctly. Or perhaps it was doing fancy accelleration
tricks (doing its own caching of obscured portions of windows), but the
fancy tricks were failing with the new chipset... doesn't matter. It
Didn't work with an STB Horizon 64 either, alas. But I'll try the new
beta stuff I got off the X-Inside FTP site today, and see if that makes
the Falcon-64 chipset work correctly. The version that came w/Caldera
says it works, but doesn't. (XFree-86 doesn't work w/that chipset, &
doesn't claim to. Don't know about Metro-X, I'll try that out when I get
my Red Hat at home).
