Could someone help with a solution to install X on this system? Any
Welcome to the XFree86 4.0.1 installer
You are strongly advised to backup your existing XFree86 installation
before proceeding. This includes the /usr/X11R6 and /etc/X11
directories. The installation process will overwrite existing files
in those directories, and this may include some configuration files
that may have been customised.
Do you wish to continue? (y/n) [n] y
Checking which OS you're running...
uname reports 'Linux' version '2.4.21-timesys-4.1-agpgart',
file: Using regular magic file `/usr/share/magic'
Object format is 'ELF'.
