Subject: Requirements for xfree86 in debian-mips
I was able to successfully install debian on my SGI Indy (r4600 -100MHz, 64MB
ram, 2GB hd) giving my sgi a new, more productive life.
I must say this was the easiest linux install i've ever done (after i figured
out that i was using sectors instead of cylinders when partitioning the drive).
When I got to the dselect portion of the install, I just quit, not wanting to
bloat the system with unnecessary packages and junk (2gb just doesn't hold that
much any more).
Unfortunately, I think it affected my compilation/installation of xfree86.
I seem to be getting a lot of errors, that result in searching for various
Would anyone happen to have a list of required packages needed prior to
compiling and installing Xfree86-4.2.0?
I'm not quite used to dselect yet (I have most of my background in
FreeBSD/OpenBSD and Solaris)
