SuSE 6.4 will include XFree86 4

Hey...I was just checking out SuSE's web site and they announced that they 
will distribute SuSE 6.4 with XFree86 4.0  on the cd.  But from what I can 
tell...you have to install it because XF86 3.3.6 will be the installed 
version.  I've included part of the press release on SuSE's web site.


Hardware support 

Xfree86TM 3.3.6 now supports brand new grphic chips, such as NVIDIA 
VANTA/GeForce 256, Savage2000 and Intel i810. Also new is the 3D hardware 
acceleration for ATI Rage Pro, Intel i810, S3 ViRGE and Nvidia 

IT professionals and developers will appreciate the inclusion of the just 
completed XFree86 4.0. SuSE is the first distribution to include this 
software. (Since XFree86 4.0, according to statements from the XFree86 
Project, is not yet fully tested, it is not the default.) As a technological 
demonstration, SuSE presents SaX2 (SuSE advanced X Configuration), a 
graphical interface in which all features of Xfree86 4.0 can be conveniently 
configured. XFree86 4.0 and SaX2 are on CD-ROM #1 in the directory /unsorted. 
Please make sure to read the Release notes before installing. 

The support for USB devices has been significantly increased - most USB mice, 
USB keyboards and USB scanners are now supported.
