Hmm ;) No SVGA here.
We have XFB_Dev and this is slow, yes.
There is xpmac.rpm on the CD, but it is a mess to use international
IIRC more or less all it took to set up Xpmac to use a swiss german
keyboard under linuxppc was the following wrapper script: (I wrote it in
Perl to be able to make it SUID - which I don't really need anymore, since
at some time Xwrapper seems to have started to work correctly)
exec '/usr/X11/bin/Xpmac', '-kbdtype', "de_CH(extended)",
'300', '-rightkey', '300', '-nooptionmouse';
The -middlekey 300 -rightkey 300 arguments are workarounds to switch off
the option-2/3-key mouse button emulation which would interfere with the
'³' and '#' chars on the swiss keyboard. (There is still the button
emulation leftoption-click=middle button,rightoption-click=right button, I
don't know where this comes from.)
I have also edited the keymap file
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh/de_CH to remap some keys (e.g.
I've placed the / key to the usual US keyboard position :-). You can find
my map on ftp://testwww.ethz.ch/de_CH . I originally got it from Lukas
On the linuxppc-user mailing list has been some discussion about a wrapper
script for Xpmac that parses a configuration file similar to XFree86.
