multiple simultanious xusers

Please look at this:
http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/multiuser/

I am interested in this, but not at the price of installing some
redhat packages on my box...

so i have a couple of questions: 

-> is anyone with knowledge anboit debian's X build system interested
to try this out and share their packages/knowledge?

As branden said (and i myself, too), this is something to be
fixed upstream. In kernel 2.5 they are fixing the things needed
to get the requirements implemented on the kernelside. however,
it still needs some fixing on the X side, too. I tried to find
someone within the XFree project, but could not (even with the
above link) communicate and explain what i was talking about.

-> Who should i talk to?

-> is someone working on this, allready?

-> What is his email?

i am not on this list, pease cc me.

Here's a patch to make it black:

Both of these ideas sound fantastic.  I myself have considered 
such, but haven't had time to play with it.  I whipped up the 
patch in my previous mail many months ago, and added it to our 
development builds.  I got back several bug reports and 
complaints from people who use it as their default desktop

Updated S3 Savage driver

Hi!

XFree86 4.1 and 4.2 contain an outdated Savage driver that causes
problems on some Thinkpad laptops. I have created a Debian package
of the newest version from the author's home page at
http://www.probo.com/timr/savage40.html

You can download the package from
http://people.debian.org/~sgybas/savage/. It diverts the module
from xserver-xfree86 so it won't get overwritten by XFree86 updates
and removes the diversion when the package is removed. I will not
upload this package to the Debian FTP archive, it was just created
to help a colleague doing his presentations with his laptop and
to put it on the Knoppix CD.

mathematica vs sid

Hello,
    Does anyone else running debian sid have the linux version of
mathematica installed. It was working fine until a week ago on my
machine and now when I run mathematica it brings up an alert saying
that some of the mathematica fonts could not be loaded. I tried
doing a clean install of mathematica but that didn't help. Can some
one else test this against current sid (or woody)? 
                Jack

gsfonts-x11 removal problems

   Does anyone understand why gsfonts-x11 seems to be so deeply 
entrenched in the system after it is installed? I tried to 
apt-get remove it and I get...

 apt-get remove gsfonts-x11
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  bonobo bonobo-conf eog evolution galeon-nautilus gedit ghex gnome-gv
  gnome-spell gnome-utils gnumeric gnumeric-python gsfonts-x11 gtkhtml j2re1.3
  j2sdk1.3-demo libbonobo-conf-dev libbonobo-dev libcamel0 libgal-dev
  libgnomeprint-bin libgnomeprint-data libgnomeprint-dev libgnomeprint15
  libgtkhtml-data libgtkhtml-dev libgtkhtml20 libguilegnome-dev libguilegnome0
  libguppi16 libnautilus-dev nautilus nautilus-extra nautilus-suggested 
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 34 to remove and 0  not upgraded.

I don't see why something like gsfonts-x11 should be tethered to all
of these packages in debian sid.
                    Jack

Most distressing.  There had better be a good reason for the above, or
this looks like many screeching violations of Policy 12.8.5.1:

	Fonts of any type supported by the X Window System must be be in
	a separate binary package from any executables, libraries, or
	documentation (except that specific to the fonts shipped, such
	as their license information). If one or more of the fonts so
	packaged are necessary for proper operation of the package with
	which they are associated the font package may be Recommended;
	if the fonts merely provide an enhancement, a Suggests
	relationship may be used. Packages must not Depend on font
	packages.[52]

Re: mathematica vs sid

Hello,

maybe you would like to take a look at

http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/linux/interface/fonterrors.html

This helped me (on a SuSE system).
