The server developer's kit allow you to rebuild just the X server with a
minimum amount of disk space. Just unpack it, make the appropriate
changes to the
xf86site.def, type ``
make'' to link the server. See
for more info.
You should configure the distribution by editing
xc/config/cf/host.def before compiling. To compile the
sources, invoke ``
make World'' in the xc directory.
XFree86 has a configuration option to select the console
drivers to use in
#define XFree86ConsoleDefines -DPCCONS_SUPPORT
#define XFree86ConsoleDefines -DPCVT_SUPPORT
host.defthe pccons and pcvt drivers will be supported by default.
Experimental native support for the wscons console driver found on OpenBSD/powerpc and on OpenBSD/i386 -current can be built by adding:
#define XFree86ConsoleDefines -DWSCONS_SUPPORT
xc/config/host.defbefore rebuilding the server. This has not been thoroughly tested, except on the macppc.
XFree86 should also compiles on other OpenBSD architectures. However, please note that 3.9.x snapshots have only been tested on the i386 for now.
