yeah i know , i'm toying around with the source, but gah i'm not having a good time here dude.

the thing is xcompmgr would be good if it gave me shadow openbsd, and i can get shadow with other OSes using xcompmgr , i use the simular command , and no shadow gets place under the window.

gah i guess i have to live without composite :(

i wish someone can get compton to work on OpenBSD 5.5 that would be sweet!

thanks for the help anyway

Cheer!

I actually had a similar issue recently, but on FreeBSD. Maybe it was just me, but xcompmgr just wouldn't set drop shadows no matter what I did.
Compton, of course, did it in a single command.

Yes xcompmgr does the same for me, but long ago I learned to live without composite. Threw it out the window when I first started using OpenBSD around 5.0.

back on topic.


I don't see any sys.tar.gz for Current.

Just in 5.4

I suppose I should just wait for the 5.5 release to come out in may, and pimp up the kernel console text / colours.

Clone the cvs repo and compile from there.

nice topic, but i notice u have option"S" and its just option, and you may want to direct new user to where the kernel src is. /usr/src/sys/arch/amd64 or whatever arch/conf/
mv GENERIC to-whatever-you-want
vi NEWKERNELNAME
add the colours and if so fonts

and the rest is good.

anyhow thanks for the guide @ yrmt
