Hi, As people following source-changes probably noticed, X.Org made a huge come back into our source tree the past few weeks. It is a bit unfortunate, but it has been seen as the most simple solution of getting an easily cross-compilable and modern X server on NetBSD. It has reached the point where it is somewhat useable, thanks to the tremendous work initiated a few years back by Tyler Retzlaff and ported to current by Matthew R. Green the past few weeks. In order to compile the base system with X.Org, you need to define MKXORG=yes in mk.conf or in your build.sh command-line. The last remaining big hurdle is the compatibility with pkgsrc. Because pkgsrc is so close to branching 2008Q3, I chose not to interfere with that work so I created a branch, cube-native-xorg. I think that it is now ready for public consumption. Before it can be merged, however, I'd like bulk builds to be run on at least the following platforms: - NetBSD-current/native X.Org (duh) - NetBSD 4.0/native XFree86 - NetBSD 3.0/native XFree86 - MacOS X/native X11 I'm ok with people trying native X.Org on your random Linux distro, but I don't think it will give meaningful results (either by working or not working). Note that in order to use cube-native-xorg, you'll want to remove all x11-related packages of your system, notably x11-links if you have it. -- Quentin Garnier - cube%cubidou.net@localhost - cube%NetBSD.org@localhost "See the look on my face from staying too long in one place [...] every time the morning breaks I know I'm closer to falling" KT Tunstall, Saving My Face, Drastic Fantastic, 2007.
