(no subject)

Woo. Finally my X11 desktop enters the 21st century; anti-aliased fonts, Gnome 2.4 desktop, versions of Free office software that vaguely work (even if Gnumeric still chokes on large amounts of data), and Free audio/video software. Having got bored of playing Windows games (for now), I've spent the past couple of days beating FreeBSD and X into shape and now it's working fairly well. I still have no idea what was stopping anti-aliasing working until now, I'd followed all the instructions before and it was still not working, but recompiling/reinstalling a whole bunch of stuff seemed to magically make it work.
