Yeah, but the colors are slightly different. They are too dark for these
aging eyes. :)

Absolutely! :)

You get to join the rest of us who have a , "I didn't read my email
before posting award." (Forgive the attitude, i'm in a really nasty
mood tonight and should have my keyboard taken away :)

The confirmation to the answer given to someone who posted this
question before just came in 3 minutes after your question. (Upgrade
sed to 4.05.) It'll also be in the FAQ once the HTML regenerates:

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/#openssl-sed-unexpected

(Adding it to the FAQ is probably not the right solution. The BLFS
instructions should probably not require so new a sed and if they
do they should probably say so. CCed to blfs-dev for that reason.)

/me notes that Larry beat me to it. But _my_ answer is betta ;P

Yes.  Working on it now.

Patch for GTK+ 2.2.1

GTK+ 2.2.1 does a dumb, dumb thing when installing the docs.  It 
scans certain directories for docs, installs any files it finds, 
then decides it will install the index.sgml doc from each 
directory a second time (apparently just for good karma or 
something?)

This is redundant but harmless if index.sgml exists in those 
directories, but it will break the build if index.sgml gets 
scrubbed during the "make" (as in my case).  I'm not sure why it 
would get scrubbed, but the patch below should be perfectly 
harmless even if index.sgml is kept around.

I just updated BLFS to use a sed with "regular expressions", so it should
work for everyone. This one's on me, I tested the submission, but did not
realize the 4.0 sed would not work with it.

XFree86 Setup

With the release of XFree86 4.3, we now have an opportunity to update 
BLFS' XFree86 section.  I've got an inital draft of the basic install 
done (including the addition of expat, png, and libxml2 rereqs) in my 
local version of BLFS, but I still need to add another section.  This is 
what I'm planning:

Remove Truetype and DRI sections.  Add a new section: XFree86 Setup. 
 For this new section I want to have the following sections (in no 
particular order):

Checking DRI with glxinfo/glxgears
Adding TrueType Fonts
Setting up the X Font Server
Setting up xdm
Using resources such as redglass and whiteglass cursors

I'd like to get other opinions about what else to add (or not add).  One 
area that I havn't quite figured out yet is how fonts have changed in 
4.3.  That is, what does the /etc/fonts/font.conf file do?  Should there 
be a discussion of this file in BLFS?
As far as I can tell right now, adding freetype means adding the 
XF86Config module, updating the fontpath, and
using mkfontscale and mkfontdir.  Except for not using ttmkfdir, this is 
the same process as before.  Am I missing anything there?

Also, I notice that there are two sections that refer to freetype 1-- 
enlightenment and xpdf.  How should these sections be updated?

Surely.
These are problems met (and mostly solved) by me:

1) The default font directory /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts: all Xft apps take too 
much time to start and eat too much memory when using this (I have installed 
XFree86 bitmap fonts for all encodings). Since bitmap fonts are not available 
now via Xft, I suggest adding only directories really containing scalable 
fonts, like /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType. Avoiding Xft looking at 
directories containing bitmap fonts also prevents the problem of bitmap fonts 
not showing at all in Konsole (although I still use Andale Mono).

2) Now non-latin keyboard layouts do not include latin by default. Instead of

Option "XkbLayout" "ru"

now we should write

Option "XkbLayout" "en_US,ru".

3) (not solved)
xterm -fn "-monotype-andale mono-medium-r-normal--*-140-100-100-m-0-koi8-r"
