Linuxnewbie.org: XFree86 Version 4.0 Installation and Configuration

[ Thanks to Sensei for this link. ]

"The XFree86 Project, Inc. has released version 4.0 of their popular X server distribution. A number of people have been wanting to install this upgrade, myself included. The new version contains updated drivers for many video cards, first time drivers for some of the latest video cards, and the added feature that it only requires one X server to be installed. No more wading through trying to decide which X server is right for you, just install 4.0 and configure it properly, and the stock X server (XFree86) will work beautifully. Also, from my experience, once you have XFree86 4.0 installed on your system, you will notice a slight decrease in server startup time."

"I have included a copy of my XF86Config file with this NHF. Please note that it is NOT advisable to use this XF86Config file without modification unless you are using the same kind of computer that I am. I use a Sony PCG-F180 Laptop running RedHat 6.1."
