XFree86-4.2.0 pkg binaries available..
I just did a build of the new XFree86-4.2.0 port. I've left the
binaries at http://people.freebsd.org/~gallatin/XF86-4.2.alpha.bwx/
As the name implies, these binaries use bwx, so if you have an ancient
ev5, ev4, ev45, etc, don't bother to try them. (grep BWX
/var/run/dmesg.boot and if you can run these, you'll see something like:
CPU: EV56 (21164A) major=7 minor=0 extensions=0x1<BWX>)
Also, these were built on a 4.5-stable machine with a world build Feb
10th. They may or may not run on a 4.5-RELEASE box. I have no easy
way of testing that.
Speaking of testing -- I have not tested them beyond running xterm, I
especially have _NOT_ yet tested the X server. If these binaries blow
your machine up, please don't blame me.
PS: If you are planning to build these yourself, you need to install
the imake-4 port/pkg. If you use the imake from the XF86-336
distribution that comes with FreeBSD-4.x-RELEASE, the build will blow
up in interesting ways.
