XFree86 is a port of X11R6.4 that supports several versions of Intel-based Unix. It is derived from X386 1.2, which was the X server distributed with X11R5. This release consists of many new features and performance improvements as well as many bug fixes.
See the Copyright Notice.
The sources for XFree86 4.8.0 are available by anonymous ftp from:
Binaries of XFree86 for LynxOS x86 are available from:
The binaries on the FTP site were built on the latest released LynxOS version at the time XFree86 4.8.0 was released. In this case it is `LynxOS x86 3.0.1'. Because of changes made to the object format they don't run on LynxOS versions earlier than 3.0.0.
Building of this XFree86 version has never been tested on LynxOS versions earlier than 2.5.1.
This release contains preliminary build support for `LynxOS 3.1.0'. Since this OS release was not available long enough for serious testing `LynxOS 3.1.0' support has to be considered to be in `alpha state'. Initial tests were performed on LynxOS x86 only!
XFree86 4.8.0 supports LynxOS on the x86 and on the PowerPC platform. X servers are currently available only on the x86 platform. The X server may work with some PowerPC platforms supported by LynxOS though this has not (yet) been thoroughly tested.
If you need binaries for other platforms than the one on the XFree86 FTP server or if you have comments or suggestions about this document contact me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
