I've just installed Fedora Core 3 on an older PC on which I also want to run OpenMotif. I specifically want mwm because I use dual heads (as dual screens, 0.0 and 0.1), and have X Windows configured for True Color on one head (primary) and 256-color (Pseudo Color) on the other head (secondary). [ I have an image display/quicklook tool for Xwindows that manipulates the 256-color LUT, and hence needs to be run on a Pseudo Color screen ... mwm is great because it doesn't gobble up more than a handful of "system" colors itself ... ]. Anyway...
My linux newbie question is whether I need to install OpenMotif (build it) from the source rpm, or whether the "Fedora Core 1" binary rpm will work under FC3 ? Does anyone know ?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
