Hi! I want to run Motif on Linux as soon as possible.
In order to save my time, I need your help......

(1) Should I get XFree86(X11R5) source code? (it seems Motif need X11R5 source)
(2) We have Motif 1.2, but don't know how to compile it on linux?
        Any suggestions?
(3) Does Motif has auto configuration? If it dose, how to do ?
(4) Please help me, thanks for your help!

1. Motif on Linux: How to compile?

I just downloaded 27MB of Motif source code via my university's site
license, but have no idea how to compile for Linux. If anyone has any
idea (or even better, first-hand experience) about how to go about it, I
would really appreciate some advice.

My configuration: running Linux 1.0, XFree86-2.1, gcc 2.5.8, pretty much
the standard slackware setup (installed from slackware 1.1, I think, but
have manually updated most of the system).  486/66DX, 16MB RAM, 16MB swap,
about 25MB left on my Linux partition...
