Description smklad 1999-05-12 23:01:29 UTC
I always install everything.  The only things I remove
after is all of the foriegn language doc.  I have two
issues with X11.
One:  The Xconfigurator shows me a 32bbp 1620 x 1024  i do
not want this but the options I get to choose from are 8 16
and 24.  I would love to say 32bbp but only 1024 x 768.
I can not figure out to fix this manually.
Two:  After the install I noticed that terminal windows
woud look very bad with crazy snow apperaing all over the
windows when I would execute commands in the windows.  I
could clearit by minimizing the window and then opening
again.  I realized what the issue was when Xwindows quits.
I get a message saying it can not load the right font?
Let me know if I can give you more information.

try running 'chkfontpath --add /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi' and
then '/etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart'.
