2.3b3: xnest is missing a sample file

Xnest is missing a packages/xnest/build/conf/50xnest sample configuration.

The same goes for a plain X session, but as this one doesn't have a
separate package, this needs to go directly into
thinstation.conf.sample.

BTW 2.2.2 is missing the same entries

Forgot to attach the file :-(

The Danish TSoM (2.2.2) is updated with this one.

x5250 working on TS2.3, contrib?


We had a need for x5250 (over tn5250) for IBM 5250 emulation in X.  We have
it working well under TS2.3.

I'm happy to contribute what we've done in a package, but there are a couple
non-standard thinstation bits. This being, I don't know how to make the
command line arguments added from Thinstation.conf append to the executable. 
I just put our  who command line into a shell script and have it execute
this.  Obviously this is not the proper way to do this, but I ran into a
barrier of lack of knowledge on my part and thin documentation for this
specific aspect.

The biggest things that we needed out of  x5250 over tn5250 is:

-better font support
-selectable text (for copying and pasting into other X apps)
-MUCH easier to do key remapping 

This is the authors site:

http://www.chowhouse.com/~james/x5250/

Thinstation is a great set of works that our maintainers have done a great
job in keeping clean and orderly.  I don't want to pollute that, though I'd
like to contribute what I can with this package.  

What's the best way to go here?

Evan

Thinstation TPM Support

I am new to the Thinstation scene and I was wondering if the latest
Thinstation version has support for Trusted Platform Modules.  I know
that the 2.6.24 Linux kernel has TPM support built in, but the
Thinstation config file does not have a module for it listed.  Is that
list in the config file exhaustive or is there a way to select any
module that is in the stock 2.6.24 kernel.  If Thinstation does not
contain TPM support how would I go about enabling it?
