XFree86 4.2 for QNX4.X is now released!

I just released XFree86 4.2 for QNX4.x onto openqnx site.
This binary includes all the post 4.2 fixes, like zlib security fix.

This release requires TCPIP5 because of the Unix domain socket supports.

To install, download “xf-4.2-bin-qnx4.tar.gz”
su -
/etc/install -u /whatever/directory/xf-4.2-bin-qnx4.tar.gz
this should install XFree86 4.2 in your /usr/X11R6 and /etc/X11

Modify your $HOME/.profile to add /usr/X11R6/bin in your PATH:
export PATH=/usr/X11R6/bin:$PATH

You can only run “startx” from the text console. You need to exit
out of the other GUI system (such as QNX Windows, Photon).
XFree86 4.2 uses the same mouse driver as QNX Windows or Photon.
You can start the mouse by “mousetrap start”. People usually
already have it in the “sysinit.X” file.

To configure X Window, you need to run “XFree86 -configure”, which will
create a “XF86Config.new” file that you can copy into
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4. You may want to modify this file to change
some default settings (such as set your own default color depth).

Now everything is ready and you should be able to “startx”
and enjoy. Post any questions to this openqnx mailing list:

I am releasing this XFree86 4.2 for QNX4 in hoping people can
start porting X applications to it. Nowadays people are more
interested in the new/fancy QNX6 but we still have lots of QNX4
users out there. I am including in the tar file some applications
(nedit, xv, xqsh, fvwm95, etc) to get you started.
