Has anyone used Accel-X n FreeBSD 3.x?  I called them and they said they
have only used it on 2.2.x so they were not sure.  Regardless, how do you
like it?

They don't "officially" support Elf format systems YET, however, having
said that I'm running 4.1.2 Accelerated-X on my 3.0 system without any
problems.  Note that I went through a lot of confusion because they ship
the entire distribution of X for Linux, but ONLY the Server and some
libraries for FreeBSD/BSD, so you'll need to install it over a XFree86
installation---this is BOGUS ;-)  I've beaten them up, and I suspect the
next release will have the full distribution on it.  

Also, I get the feeling they'll officially support Elf in the next
release.

I use it on 2.2.8 - a fine product and good value with excellent
suppot - 'nuff said.

I'm using 4.1 on fbsd 3.0R and have found no problems so far. Not only it
makes your life easier, its drivers are actually much better than XF86. For
~$100, you can get something much better than MS WIN9x. I would prefer spend
my money on Accel-X.

Yeh, that's the only thing I need to do.

i'm using 4.1 (with all the patches) on fbsd 3.1-RELEASE and it works
fine.  you will probably have to mess around with ldconfig to make
sure the aout loader picks up the aout libs from /usr/X11R6/lib.

compiling X software has unfortunately become something of a pain in
the butt.  i had to download the Xfree86 tarballs (actually you just
need Xbin) and unpack a bunch of the elf library files.  for most
apps you have to get into the Makefile and muck with the link options
so it links the elf X libs in properly.

I just mailed Metro-X and they said that their current X server (4.1.3
iirc) supports ELF. I'll give it a try in a few weeks. I'm using Accel
X 4.1 right now, and I'm completely satisfied, but since they don't
support ELF at the moment (and because Metro-X seems to be cheaper)
I'll try out Metro-X.

BTW, Metro Link is going to sell a newer version of Motif for FreeBSD
(2.1.10), another advantage over Xig (just my $ 0.02).

Bye,

I am using 4.1.2 with FreeBSD 4.0-CURRENT and it works just great. I
originally got it to support my Matrox G200 (which is now supported
by XFree but hey, why switch now?).

1. Patch to support ZCOMAX (ZCOM) XI-325 and XI-325H wireless cards

This patch against 3.0 release adds support for the ZCOM XI-325 and XI-325H
wireless NICs. These NICs are both Prism-2.5 based and support HostAP mode
and are sold by Zcomax in North America.

The XI-325H is a high power (200mW) version of the XI-325.

I'm not sure why the vendor is ELSA; perhaps there was a name change
not long ago. Or maybe ZCom is selling OEM cards.. or something like that.
