Re: test3 vs make xconfig

Sorry, typo on my part.  Use "make gconfig" not "make qconfig".  You can get the straight scoop from the kernel README.

The advice regarding qtconfig applies to version 3.2.1.  You need to click on the font tab and uncheck the "Enable Anti-Aliased Font Support (Xft)" box.  

The "Enable Anti-Aliased Font Support (Xft)" option has been removed from Qt Configuration, version 3.3.1.  

I have not encountered any problems using either xconfig or gconfig under FC2T3.
