I am currently running redhat 7.3 w/ 2.4.32 kernel. New systems we got was using new video hardware which required an update from XFree4.2(included with RH 7.3), to XFree-4.4. I got this working by downloading the XFree source and did a make World, make install...This got X up and working. Since I didn't use rpm to install XFree86(couldn't find such rpms), my rpm database still shows XFree4.2. What would be the best way to have the rpm database reflect the correct version of XFree or just remove it from the rpm database all together.
Or I guess to phrase it another way, I'm running Redhat 7.3 with kernel 2.4.32 and XFree-4.2. How should I go about upgrading Xfree to 4.4? The binaries on xfree86.org.
