How often is in-tree Xorg updated?
How often is in-tree Xorg updated from upstream?
I'm asking this because I find that on my new laptop, on which I had
installed a amd64 5.0.1 system, I get much better results from X
(working cursor, font rendering, acceleration and DRI!) if I drop in a
more or less -current kernel, and a xf86-video-intel X server from
pkgsrc-2009Q4. But I'd prefer to run an in-tree X server, so knowing
when this will be possible again.
As a side-note, I noticed that building xf86-video-intel builds a whole
bunch of seemingly unrelated junk^H^H^H^Hstuff, including libXaw! Athena
Widgets are most certainly a client-side thing, why in the world would
an X server need them? And yet
$ pkg_info libXaw
Information for libXaw-1.0.6:
X Athena Widgets Library from modular Xorg X11
Xaw is the X Athena Widget Set. Xaw is a widget set based on the
X Toolkit Intrinsics (Xt) Library.
This libXaw is from the modular Xorg X11.
In fact, none of the executables seem to link to Xaw, not even Xnest, as
shown by ldd. So one would think that at least this particular
dependency can be removed.
