Xconfigurator patch to add --usefbdev and associated documentation. (3.48 KB, patch)

Description Ed McKenzie 2001-04-10 13:02:55 EDT
Rationale: running XFree86 on fbdev, combined with enabling sysrq, 
improves system stability as compared to the default configuration 
(allowing XFree86 to handle all of the mode-switching itself.)  The 
attached patch doesn't change the default behavior, but makes it 
easier for power-users to be XFree86 beta-testers without having to 
constantly reach for the reset button.

The patch adds this switch and updates the man page and 
Xconfigurator's --help screen to document this change.

Thanks for the suggestion and the patch Ed.  I will look into the
possibility of including this in a future release and update you
on the status.

Thanks again,

I just went to apply this patch and it is damaged.  It appears
to have been created in Windows perhaps.

Please make a new diff in Linux with diff -u src dest > foo
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-07 05:27:46 EDT
Please make new patch against the latest rawhide version of Xconfigurator also
so it applies cleanly.  I tried to cut n paste it but that is a mess...
I'll just wait for the new diff.  TIA
