New HOWTO: Installing XFree86 4.0.1 on Debian 2.2 Posted on Wednesday, December 13 @ 11:13:30 GMT
Using Potato and want to try out some of the newer Linux toys, but can't stand to lose your precious hair each week after upgrading a quarter of your system again? Don't worry, Debian Planet has you covered with some sane instructions on how to get the XFree86 4.0.1 packages for Potato compiled by Charl P. Botha installed courtesy of a little help from our friend from #debian on OpenProjects, Goran 'jm_' Koruga. Click here to start enjoying the full glory of having XFree86 installed on your Potato system.
Note: To take full advantage of the new acceleration features such as direct rendering infrastructure in XFree86 4.x, don't forget that you may have to compile kernel 2.2.18 and later or a kernel from the 2.4.x branch with modules for agpcart support for your motherboard's chipset and the relevant DRI & DRM modules for your video chipset. These includes 3Dfx Banshees/V3, ATI Rage 128, Intel i770 and Matrox G200/G400 cards. For full details, please refer to the Direct Rendering Open Source Project. Nvidia users will have to refer to Nvidia's own site or Raphael Bossek's Nvidia in Debian page for instructions on installing their proprietary kernel modules.
