    X Janitor project: Volunteer help requested Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
    Thursday, May 15 2003 @ 07:28 AM PDT
    Contributed by: manu

    GeekLogI would like to thank all contributors that have so far to helped me to put useful information on the X Janitor page One thing it still lacks though, is a clear HOWTO on how to install multiple versions of X on the system without conflicting or disrupting the X system provided by the user's OS distribution. By having such a HOWTO, it would make it much easier for people who want to test or work with CVS releases of X but do not want to destroy their distribution supplied X installation in the process. I still have not found a clear HOWTO on this, so if everyone could contribute comments here or in the wiki page, perhaps we could put one together.

    XFree86 and bitmap fonts Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
    Wednesday, May 07 2003 @ 12:30 PM PDT

    General News

    There are some changes that I would like to implement in the way XFree86 deals with bitmap fonts. I've written up the problems that I see, and the changes that I'm planning, on

    Note that these are my plans, and I haven't consulted with the other XFree86 developers yet, so they are quite likely to change.

    IPv6 support? Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
    Tuesday, May 06 2003 @ 09:08 PM PDT
    Contributed by: Anonymous

    General NewsAs mentioned on slashdot, the X consortium has released a proposal and some code for IPv6 support in X. Am I the only underwhelmed by this? Why now as opposed to, say, six years ago? Sloth on their part, or some X-files-inspiring attempt to portray themselves as innovative? I'd love to hear people's thoughts.

    Driver Development. Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    General NewsThere is one thing that has always irked me about development speed in the world of X. That is: drivers. I love the idea that xwin will provide a modularized X such that development of components such as drivers will be able to occur independently and be released independently from X as a whole. On that note, what are your comments about modularized driver development? Frankly I would love to see more support for the Trident family as my iOpener is craving better Cyberblade i7 support. Any idea who is currently working on the trident branch?
    *rubs hands together with anticipation of future beta drivers... accelerated X...*

    Janitor style effort Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
    Tuesday, April 29 2003 @ 08:13 AM PDT
    Contributed by: manu

    General NewsYou'll find the (very) beginning of a janitor-type effort for XFree86. The idea is to mimic the kernel janitor thing, the goal being two-folds : first correct bugs and do basic code audit, second facilitate the first contact with the code base by good programmers but otherwise totally X newbies.
    For now it is only based on a mail patently copied by me from the forum list (thanks to Peter Firefly Lund for poiting it to me), but I hope that people with a better knowledge of X than me (this means everyone who knows something in fact ;-), will precise the tasks by putting examples of bad code and their replacement, pointers to the suspect files, and also new tasks.

    Specifications, design are more important than the 'hacking' Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
    Thursday, April 24 2003 @ 11:32 AM PDT
    Contributed by: mike

    General NewsHmmm. I get the impression that a lot of the posters here are interested in coding/hacking and adding great new features. Keith Packard lists 'hacking' prominently as bullet number 6 in one of his posts. I find that the design and specification is more important than the hacking bit, maybe that's the only thing useful thing I learned at college.
