Re: [Nautilus-list] Status of FreeBSD port of Nautilus?

	I am trying to get the Nautilus port working this very minute.
I'm running 5.0-current with XFree86 4.0.3, so I'm probably asking for
instability problems.  The port built fine except that I am using the
version of freetype2 that is built with XFree86 4 rather than as a
separate port.  Because of this, I had to change the nautilus port
makefile to use ${X11BASE} instead of ${LOCALBASE} to find the
freetype headers and library.  I haven't contacted Ade Lovett (the port
maintainer) about this little issue.
	Right now, Nautilus does not seem to be doing much of anything
except eat CPU cycles.  :(  To get it running at all, I had to edit
/usr/X11R6/etc/oaf/oaf-config.xml to read as follows:

<?xml version="1.0"?>




This really seems like the kind of thing that something somewhere should
be doing automatically.  If I have better news, I'll let you know.  I
too am very interested in seeing Nautilus running well on FreeBSD.
