Xfree -> Xorg


Hey all,

I'm currently running 9.1 pro. Is there a (easy) way I can upgrade Xfree to Xorg?

I did a search but nothing to good came up.

yeah, just remove one and install the other. should be pretty painless... back up your old config file and go for it. some things like font paths have changed, so you might have a few niggles there, but essentially it should load wihout too mugh bother. and if you do have problems, you can always just reinstall XFree86

How do i remove this one and install the other? Is there some detail instructions on all this or? I'm still pretty new on Linux so i doubt that I'd know to recover something if i screw up lol.
