We have received many questions as of late if the Lunar Linux project is still alive; the short answer to that is YES! Of course we can’t deny the fact that we are a little short on manpower right now, but packages are getting updated pretty much every day. If you want to track the [...]

XOrg has been updated in moonbase to version X11R7.3
Updating from the previous version in moonbase should be handled automatically by lunar update.
However, there are 2 caveats:
If, after updating, your mouse is not working, please recompile xf86-input-mouse via lin xf86-input-mouse. Restart X afterwards. The current NVIDIA driver (100.14.11) [...]

These features can be enabled by running lunar optimize and switching on distcc, ccache [...]

Both modules have the sole purpose of providing the kernel interface modules for the direct rendering manager X uses to enable your video card’s 3D acceleration. So if you happen to have libdrm-cvs installed its going to [...]

When you face problems do not hesistate to file a [...]
I’ve just released the xorg-7.0 tree in the zbeta section of moonbase.
Many of you know Moe and me have been working on this first release for X11R7 for quite a long time.
