  This are the sources of the basic X11 system used in the Unix environment
  AmiCygnix version 1.4. In the AmiCygnix directory you can find a skeleton
  of AmiCygnix, where the sources are located in "AmiCygnix/CygnixPPC/src/
  X11R6.3". The sources are separated in the X11R6.3 package in the subdirectory
  "xc" and the contribution package in the subdirectory "contrib".

  The sources (especially the sources of my included utility library) are
  compiled with the AmigaOS 4 SDK version 53.30.

  To make it easier for you, some already compiled utilities for AmigaOS 4 are
  located in "AmiCygnix/CygnixPPC/bin" and "AmiCygnix/CygnixPPC/X11R6.3/bin".

How to use

  You can copy the sources from "AmiCygnix/CygnixPPC/src/X11R6.3" to your
  existing AmiCygnix installation and build the stuff there. But I recommend
  to use the included skeleton for build process. Just switch the Cygnix: assign
  to the AmiCygnix directory and make a reset.

How to build

  Step A: Build the utility library "libaos4util-newlib.a".

    Open a shell, cd into the directory


    and type "make".

  Step B: Build and install the X11 system libs and programs.

    Open a shell, cd into the directory


    and type "make -f makefile.amigaos4 World". Good luck!

    Afterwards go to coffe machine and drink several cans of coffee ;-). I guess
    this step needs over 1 1/2 hours.

    When the build process finished successfully, install the includes, libs and
    programs by typing "make -f makefile.amigaos4 install" into the shell.

  Step C: Build the contribution software.

    Open a shell, cd into the directory


    Afterwards launch the abc-shell by typing "sh" into the shell. Then type
    "xmkmf -a" to create the makefiles of the contribution package. Now you can
    build the programs with "make" and install them with "make install".

  If everything went o.k., you are ready to compile the packages of the
  base package and tools package.
