Default

1... make a new filesystem with free space on disk
2... newfs it.
3... DESTDIR installworld etc
4... copy a working backup libraries to various places
5... copy various programs so X programs can run in the jail
6... setup a jail, the new partition mounted as jail
7... configure partially the jail (newbie)
8... on the host, use (Xnest or ) xephyr to start an X server
9... on the jail, start an xterm connected to the Xephyr server
10... in the Xterm, in the jail, start the working copy of opera
11... only problem seems to be getting opera shifted to the left... I've two-thirds of it only onscreen despite Xephyr being fullscreen... it is shifted to the right...
===========================================
[ Maybe someone knows if now "ssh -X" into the jail would enable starting opera from that environment... ]
---- ignore that for now, I've yet to test the below when I have time-----
Code:
xrandr   --output VGA2 mode 1152x814
...As soon as I convert its LCD parameters to this CRT one... etc, Also
if it works in Xephyr. I think I read that Xnest does not support the command.
It worked to fix a similar problem
=============================================
xrandr cannot find gamma, cannot read EDID
editing the opera binary with paths not working
writing a libmap.conf not working
altering LD_LIBRARY_PATH not working
....................... a few other ideas to try
....................... sorry for the does-not-apply-to-anyone-else posts.
