Thread: Xfree86 CVS

  1. Xfree86 CVS

    I opened the recent xinit.c file from the xfree86.org cvs repository. The
    source code modifications for Minix3, the ones we find at the xinit.c of the
    cs.vu.nl cvs repository, do not appear there. What it would take for xfree86
    to distribute the Xfree86 source files with the Minix3 source addition,
    along with the other OSs' #ifdef?

    Somebody would have to submit the changes to them.

    Note that the minix 3 X port is based on X.org.

    In some ways, the Minix 3 changes are not as small as they should be
    (the lack of Unix domain sockets is one area).
