Smile xfree86 missing


For what ever reason I've installed Slack with the full installation. After booting I'm missing the file to configure XF86Config. A search with slocate didn't help. What went wrong, installation was pretty simpel

It's now 'xorgconfig'. Slackware 10 uses X.org, not XFree.

As of 06/5/04 Slackware is not using Xfree any more.
The change was made to Xorg .

You didn't miss anything, manuals haven't been updated yet. You may see about Xorg change in some review or how-to install Slackware 10
