I grabbed your Xpmac binary this morning and tried it out on a 3400/240
running R5. It seemed to work well for the most part. Very noticeable
acceleration, especailly over the XF86 server I was currently using. I
did run into a couple problems though.
- If windows are moved around too quickly, vertical bands appear. If I
explicitly request that part of the screen to be redrawn (e.g. by my
closing the xterm and reopening it), the lines disappear.
- When I passed it the wrong option (I used "startx --depth 16" instead
of the correct "startx -- -depth 16", it off course ignored the wrong
swtich and started up in 8-bit colour). But on exiting X, it locked
up the machine completely. I couldn't even switch to another virtual
console to kill the process or reboot the machine, so I ended up with
a hard reboot). For a window managers - I am using an old version of
AfterStep that I recompiled from the src.rpm for R5. It is version
1.0.7a (Yes - I know it's old, but it is small, I know how to set it
up, and does all I need ;-)
Otherwise, I have not found any other problems, and the person that uses
this machine is actually pretty happy right now, as am I ;-) Thanks for
the great work !!
