unfortunately, afaics, debian sid still uses 4.1.0.  if anyone knows of
someone packaging a more recent X for debian, i'd like to know about it.

also, if anyone knows where redhat, suse, mandrake, etc keep a copy of X
4.2.* rpm's (if they exist), please save me from hunting for them all by
emailing urls directly to me (rather than the list).  i keep my own
installfest disk that i bring.  i'll burn them and their dependencies on
my disk.


Enron..safe legal abortion..civil liberty..repealing ICBM treaty..deficit..
What's worse?  Screwing an intern or screwing an entire country?
