Done, now reporting back. I've only spent about 30 minutes installing X.org and getting it run :-) I've installed the following RPMs from FC4: expat-1.95.8-6.i386.rpm freetype-2.1.9-2.i386.rpm fontconfig-2.2.3-13.i386.rpm xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-libs-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-font-utils-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm libpng-1.2.8-2.i386.rpm fonts-xorg-base-6.8.2-1.noarch.rpm xorg-x11-tools-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-xfs-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-xauth-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xinitrc-4.0.18-1.noarch.rpm xterm-200-6.i386.rpm chkfontpath-1.10.0-4.i386.rpm xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm xorg-x11-twm-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm I have also installed one rpm from FC3: ttmkfdir-3.0.9-14.i386.rpm ttmkfdir from fc4 required a newer version of libstdc++: ttmkfdir: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.4' not found (required by ttmkfdir) Then I changed /etc/pam.d/xserver according to suggestions from Owl/doc/REDHAT and now I can run X as grg using 'xinit' :-) -- Grigoriy. -- To unsubscribe, e-mail owl-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
