XF86Config - Configuration File for XFree86
Please click here to learn about XF86Config
Alternatively, you can go get the XFree86.dsl extension specifically for DSL in the DSL Repository under System
Details of the XFree86.dsl extension below:
Extension by: henk1955
This package contains the XFree86 X-server, many video and input drivers. openGL drivers driver info: http://www.xfree86.org/4.3.0/Status.html
THIS IS NOT A CLICK AND PLAY PACKAGE.
You need to add 2 files.
exec /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 -nolisten tcp
(copy included in /home/dsl/XFree86_config_files)
The content of this file depends on the hardware you have. You can find examples of such file all over the internet (use google). I have some on http://home.zonnet.nl/henk.1955 this does NOT remove the DSL KDrive ( the small XServer). If the XFree86 wont start, you can type: xsetup.sh to get the DSL-X back. Then try to correct the error in XF86Config-4 (****There are several working XF86Config-4 files in the included home/dsl/XFree86_config_files directory.. Start with the XF86Config-4_vesa version first****)
Thanks to Henk1955 for the kickstart and contribution and SaidenUnleashed for testing it on ATI/Radeon hardware Compaq and Toshibe laptops and NVidia tested by ke4nt.
NOTICE: I installed XFree86 by following theese instructions, but the mouse cursor didn't work (it was going crazy in the edge of the screen). I have solved it by commenting this line:
- [ -f .mouse_config ] && sh .mouse_config &
in /home/dsl/.xinitrc, now the mouse cursor is working perfect.
