This is exactly what I've been trying to do (XF86_Mach64 with ATI WinTurbo).
Untaring the files over the old binaries gave me some errors: existing
symbolic links couldn't get overwritten.
I have the Slackware 2.3.0 that came on InfoMagic's Linux developper's
resource CDs from August 1995.
Here's a description of my most meaningfull failed attempt.
I'm new to Linux and Unix administration, so I went the drastic way:
formating my hard disk and loading disksets A, D, N, XAP, XV.
Installing as described in the INSTALL text file (as root) the following
files from CD #3 (from paths XFree86-3.1.2/common and XFree86-3.1.2/elf):
X312Ma64.tgz, X312bin.tgz, X312cfg.tgz, X312doc.tgz, X312fnt.tgz,
X312inc.tgz, X312lib.tgz, X312ctrb.tgz, X312f100.tgz, X312f75.tgz,
X312fscl.tgz, X312man.tgz, X312slib.tgz, X312alib.tgz, X312aslb.tgz.
I copied my previously saved XF86config file back in /etc.
Executing xf86config gave me "Unable to load shared library libc.so.5". So
The only libs I had were: /lib/libc.so.4.6.27 and /lib/libc.so.4; and I
couldn't find any other useful libs on CDs neither.
Any clues appreciated.
