XFree86 4.0 for m68k

m68k packages for XFree86 4.0 have finally been uploaded, however, the xfree server is not yet working on m68k, thats why you will probably not find a xserver-xfree86 package for m68k in the archives (but I put a copy of the latest build here), You could install the package, but it will probably not get you very far (please report your configuration if it did!). On my box, I get:
XFree86 Version 4.0.2 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6400)
Release Date: 18 December 2000
(==) ModulePath set to "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
(--) using VT number 7

(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libbitmap.a
(II) Module XFree86 Font Renderer: vendor="XFree86 Font Renderer"
        compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libpcidata.a
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
So right now it is not necessary to install this package (unless maybe you want to help fixing this problem).

However, you can install/upgrade all the client packages and install the xserver-fbdev package from 3.3.6. To make this server work with X4.0, you have to fix two things by-hand.

You need to make the new (old) xserver known. As root do:

cd /etc/X11
mv X X4 # backup the old X, move it back once xserver-xfree86 works
ln -s /usr/bin/X11/XF68_FBDev X # point X to the old xserver-fbdev
Next you need to move the XF86Config to a place where the new packages look for it. As root do:
cp /etc/X11/XF86Config /etc/
This config file should be still left from your old 3.3.6 X11 installation. If you don't have that one anymore, you might get it, ie from xserver-common_3.3.6-11potato15_m68k.deb (in potato-proposed-updates) or from here.
