Re: Gnome on MI/X X Server


I also have developed X server, WiredX and my experience may help you.

We are providing our pure Java X server from and
I'm writing this e-mail on Evolution, Ximian Gnome, RedHat 6.2,
which are running on WiredX in multi-window mode, Windows98SE and J2SE

According to the result from xdpyinfo to WiredX,

|number of extensions:    2
|    MIT-SHM
|    SHAPE

only two extensions have been supported at present.

However, without it, some apps, for example, wmaker, will print out many
messages. If you need to run enlightenment, SHAPE extension will be
but if you choose other window manager, the missing of that extension is
so harmful. And then, the missing of some visual type is not also
becase I could run Gnome environtment on WiredX with 8bit-gray, 16bit,
24bit, 32bit.

So, IMHO, if you run recent Gnome, which is included in RedHat 6.2 or
X extensions will not relate to your problem.
