Check the XFree86-3.3 documentation for more details.

Extending the Expiry Date of XFree86-3.2A

Since XFree86-3.3 could only be released a few days before XFree86-3.2A expires we want to make it easier for those in need of an updated server. Add the following command line option when starting the servers of XFree86-3.2A and the expiry time will be extended another 30 days until July 15th, 1997.

-extendExpiry 30 0a8d20244e3c8fcb

This should give you enough time to get and install XFree86-3.3.

When starting the server with startx, use:

	startx -- -extendExpiry 30 0a8d20244e3c8fcb
When starting the server from xdm, edit your /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers file and change the :0 line to something like:
	:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -extendExpiry 30 0a8d20244e3c8fcb
