Hi,

I am unable to use Xdmx on Ubuntu 8.10 and Gentoo because it crashes at startup. Something similar seems to happens on Fedora according to: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=461096

Another report on Ubuntu:
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2008-September/038929.html

Is there any progress on this issue? Or should Xdmx best be regarded as a sleeping project?

Gentoo also segfaults:
# Xdmx :1 -display cow.local:0
[...]

    The DMX software has been integrated into the X.org server software. Please download directly from X.org instead of from SourceForge. The code here at sourceforge is rather old and is no longer updated.

    Would it be possible to add a (big+red) notice that the code was merged directly into from X.org to home page and to project's summary or news at sourceforge? (and a link where to find the documentation)
