as the Xorg 6.8.2 available from Slackware 10.2
patches seems not supporting DRI for my Intel
852GM/855GM (on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo V2020), I just
downloaded and tried to build Xorg 6.9.0, following
what described for 6.8.2 on:
After editing files (created/edited host.def, edited
xorg.cf, xfree86.cf) in order to build only the
drivers I need (e.g. no mga, no apm, no nv, etc...), I
run make World > World.log 2>&1 and got some build
First was in a section related to SUN....???!! Perhaps
ffb_dac.h (by memory), the Bool type seems not
recognized (I changed to unsigned int). But I can't
understand why this driver is being build (perhaps is
it part of DRIDevelepomentDriver???).
Then I had problems in including fontconfig.h (I added
the extended path in the .h files including it), but
again something isn't working fine. BTW: when getting
such an error I run bot make clean and "make World ...
" again, not simply "make".
Last, the loader can't find -lfontconfig...
When examining the beginning of the World.log file,
neither the #define LinuxDistribution seems getting
correct values (I used #define LinuxDistribution
linuxSlackware). May you give me some idea? This is my
first build of Xorg/XFree, but I'm using linux for
around nine years (and build my kernels regularly).
Thanks in advance,
