how to upgrade or install xfree86

Dear mobassir.,

You can download the .tgz file from the belwo location
ftp://ftp.xfree86.org/pub/XFree86/4.3.0/source/

After this extract them usign tar -zxvf comamnd which will create a directory called xc.

cd to that directory & then to src director then say

# make World
# make install

check & revert

You'll need several more than that, check out the "install" file which should be in the same directory on the ftp site you got X430src-7.tgz from.
