X11 on Notebook ??

Post by Thomas Otterbe » Mon, 03 May 1993 07:16:08



Hello...

Has somebody experience in running X11 on a Nootbook?
I have a 386DX,40 Mhz Notebook SunRace.
32 grayscale LCD, VGA, Video Chip is an Cirrus Logic GD6410/GD6420.

May be someone can give me a hint to configure the XConfig.

Thanks in advance!

Thomas

I just installed TAMU.99p4 on a GRID 1660 (386/25, 8MB RAM, 120MB disk, greyscale).
I put DOS/Windoze in partition one, and Linux and swap in partitions 2 and 3.
The GRID 1660 has a built in trackball, and works great with the Xfree86 mono server.
I was pleasantly surprised with the windowed performance; dialed in to
a sun at work, the xterms scrolled amazingly quickly.
To configure the mono server, simply change the link /usr/X386/bin/X
to point to X386mono, and use the default Xconfig. In my case the mouse
is ps/2 busmouse compatible, so I used /dev/mouse  (major 10, minor 1).
Your mouse milage may vary :-)

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?
