Hello all,

1) Is this (xcb) project vivid and active?

2) I would like to test your xcb (xlib replacement), but how to start?
Unfortunately, I do not fully understand howto install the various parts.

I have read the

and have installed all
pkgconfig 0.15.0,  automake 1.7,  autoconf 2.50,  libtool 1.5.6,  xsltproc,
gperf 3.0.1

And done:

cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xlibs login
cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xlibs co  Xproto
cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xlibs co  Xau

cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xcb co xcb-proto
cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xcb co xcb

Having now:
drwxr-xr-x   6 alex alex 4096 2006-02-03 19:21 Xau
drwxr-xr-x   8 alex alex 4096 2006-02-03 19:46 xcb
drwxr-xr-x   7 alex alex 4096 2006-02-03 19:21 xcb-proto
drwxr-xr-x   4 alex alex 4096 2006-02-03 19:11 Xproto

And compiled xcb which reported errors:

$ cd xcb
$ ~/code/X11/xcb$
$~/code/X11/xcb$ ./autogen.sh
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal  --output=aclocal.m4t
aclocal: configure.ac: 14: macro `AM_PATH_CHECK' not found in library
autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 1

My distro is Ubuntu 5.10 (X86 32 bit)
