Question Has anyone recompiled X?


Hi!

Anyone that has experience of compiling XFree86?
I'm having thoughts on doing just that, but wanna know if there are any pitfalls or common problems.

I'm using slackware 9.1 w a recompiled 2.4.22-kernel and xfree86-4.3.0-i486.

Recompile X or Reconfigure X??? I'm not sure how you would go about recompiling it but I believe just about every linux user has, at one time or another had to reconfigure their XFree86 file.

Am I missing something or are you asking a different question?

I mean what i said; compile. I have already downloaded the sources and read the documents that come with it, but it didn't help much.

It's not that hard, just read the instructions carefully and you'll be fine
