I recently discovered I could do it with SaX (I say discover because
there is not a word about this X configuration utility in the 6.4
for ppc manual !! -- and I'm new to the SuSE world). Problem: SaX does
not work properly on my G4. As soon as it is started, my keyboard and
my mouse are completely screwed up (as someone mentioned on this list).
So I tried sax -f startup so as to force it to run on the startup X
server. Sometimes it's better, sometimes it's not. But even when
I can use mouse and keyboard, it seems the saved XF86Config file
is overwritten by xsfb at boot time so modifications are lost.
Sax is not for ppc and it should not be on the CD.
Apparently there is a new version of xsfb with an
option to avoid
creating XF86Config at boot. I haven't looked at it yet.
You should upgrade.
Does anyone know if the people at SuSE plan on
releasing a new --
and working -- version of SaX soon? Has anyone experience with XF86 4.0.1
and SaX2? Is it any better? (Is SaX2 somewhere on any of the four CDs?)
Sax2 will work fine with xf4 when it is finished. But there will be a
xsfb to for initial X11 config.
