This is my first post to this list, ( please be kind ;) )...
Ive got a Dell laptop Inspiron 640M that i have managed to get all the
hardware to work quite well.
When it comes to X though i have problems getting DRI to enable. I have
tried pretty much all avenues with pre-built binaries ( supplied by distro
). The hardware in question is an I945GM express chipset.
Ive enabled all the goodies in my kernel ( il give complete sysem/distro
details details at the end of this mail )
So not being a stranger to hand crafting software i downloaded both the 7.0and
7.1 full tarballs, used the guile merge script to merge the build-dir and
proceeded to build the deps for X this also included Mesa ( via git ).
Everything went smoothly up until building the xorg-server source with glx
dri support ( includes pointing at mesa src tree )...
The build fails with the following:
glxutil.h:51: error: syntax error before `*` token
glxutil.h:53: warning: function declaration isn't a prototype
glxutil.h:54: error: syntax error before `*` token
glxutil.h:54: warning: function devlaration isn't a prototype
make: ***[glxcmds.lo] Error 1
The only reference i found that was any where close to this was for building
X for Mac / Darwin.
I can build the xorg-server if i do not enable glx ( no libglx ) ..
If anyone has anymore info for this id appreciate the help
Dell Inspiron 640M
OS: Slackware 11.0
Many thanks in advance
