    I installed xfree86 via Fink.

    The only problem is when trying to launch X, I get this:
    Code:
    Rawk-Box:~ joshua$ X
    2004-01-05 17:38:15.663 XDarwin[10492] CFLog (0): CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): Old-style plist parser: missing semicolon in dictionary.
    2004-01-05 17:38:15.664 XDarwin[10492] CFLog (0): CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): The file name for this data might be (or it might not): /Applications/XDarwin.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/Localizable.strings
    2004-01-05 17:38:29.570 XDarwin[10492] 
    XDarwin 1.2b4
    
    XFree86 Version 4.3.0 / X Window System
    (protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
    Release Date: 27 February 2003
            If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your hardware is
            newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
            reporting problems.  (See [url]http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ[/url])
    Operating System: Darwin Apple Computer, Inc.
    
    Fatal server error:
    Could not find keymapping file USA.keymapping.
    
       OsVendorFatalError
       AbortDDX
    Quitting XDarwin...
    and X wont load.

    The last part about USA.keymapping file is wont mostly bothers me - where is that file at? how do I make XDarwin find it? or how do I get it if I dont have it??

    Thanks in advance!

    XDarwin comes with OpenOffice as a binary, I had XDarwin installed once, but I trashed it because Apple has their own X11 program, just download that from apple's site or install it from Disk 3 on Panther.

    The downloaded version of X11 is newer.

    I used to have Apple's X11, but the X programs I installed with Fink knew it was there, only they wouldnt use it, and Fink downloaded XDarwin any way.

    I figured getting Fink and my other programs to recognize X11 and use it instead of XDarwin would be more of a hassle than just letting Fink use Xdarwin.

    Little did I know.....:p

    So I guess this is a new question -

    If I re-download Apple X11, how do I install it inplace of XDarwin and get Fink/others to use it instead???

    Thanks again!
