X in effect

I finally figured out where I was running astray in my efforts to install Xfree86 4.1 under MacOS X last week. It turns out that there is an additional file called Xquartz.tgz that I had failed to download. Once I downloaded it and ran the Xinstall.sh script again it ran like a charm. Now I just need to track down a decent window manager and install GIMP.

Looks like darwinfo.org has a nice listing of X Windows ports and I think Fink supports a few as well. Time to do a little exploring later.
