System: FreeBSD anholt.dyndns.org 5.2-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT #17: Fri Jun 18 03:01:45 PDT 2004 anholt at anholt.dyndns.org:/usr/src/current/sys/i386/compile/MYKERNEL i386
At USENIX I talked with re (scottl) and others about making xorg the
default for 5.3, and it was agreed that the switch would be fine, even
with pkg_delete -f and reinstalling being necessary, as long as it
happened before -STABLE. Of course some solution involving MOVED so it
was all automatic would be better, but I'm not aware of any without
repocopying XFree86 away and making X.org the default for all.
Here's a (link to a) patch to make the switch, and make the XFree86 and
X.org ports be supported equally by bsd.port.mk and the ports tree. I
haven't actually completed a "make index" -- it died on
x11-toolkits/open-motif last time and since then I cvsupped and other
ports broke it it seems.
Could this get queued for bento testing?
