umm im not sure if its within the general discussion of porting or not, but
im prepared to give porting/documentation a go if need be.

Im using the following tarball,


bash-2.01# xinit
No such file or directory (errno 2):  no server "X" in PATH

Use the -- option, or make sure that /usr/X11R6.4/bin is in your path and
that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server
for your display.  Possible server names include:

ok, so what X server do I make a symbolic link to, actually im not even
sure there is one provided/ported?

ln -s /usr/X11R6.4/bin/Xserver /usr/X11R6.4/X ....? 

I've used XFree86 before, but dont know the difference with X11R6, did'nt
the xfree source tree come from X11R6 originally? What are the major

Anyway once I know that, I can probably strace to get on a bit further.

Fun fun fun. :)
