This document contains information about installing the XFree86 binaries as provided by The XFree86 Project.
The XFree86 binaries that we provide for UNIX-like OS's (Linux, the BSDs,
Solaris, etc) are packaged in a platform-independent gzipped tar format (aka
"tarballs" identified by the
.tgz suffix). Along with the
binaries we provide a customized version of the GNU tar utility called
"extract" and an installation script. We recommend that these be
used to install the binaries.
