Re: How to install X.org from pkgsrc cleanly ?
Hi, .. we NetBSD wiki contain a tutorial doing it on 4.0 REl, personally i'm using xorg-modular on my ibm Thinkpad t43 with a ATI card.
The link is: http://wiki.netbsd.org.mx/index.php/HOWTO:_Instalando_modular-xorg_desde_pkgsrc
I't are in spanish language, but no problem with these.
TIP: You don't must have Xfree86 installed on the machine tat you want xorg, it must be unselect from the installation program.

I just installed a NetBSD 4.0 on my laptop recently, but since I had some trouble to get the right resolution working for XFree86, and that my X.org on Linux was working nicely, I decided to try X.org on NetBSD this time. I ve always used the native XFree before.
So I decided to do a clean install without Xsrc as specified in the wiki, but trying to install x11/modular-xorg-server failed at some point with the error :
ERROR: This package has set PKG_FAIL_REASON:
ERROR: Do not include x11.buildlink3.mk for X11_TYPE != "native".
I specified X11_TYPE="modular" in /etc/mk.conf, but is there anything else to do ? Searching the mailing list I read also something about linking /usr/X11R6 to /usr/pkg ...
Is there any up to date documentation with instructions that will work with a quaterly release of pkgsrc for example ? I tried both 2007Q4 and current...
Thanks a lot everyone...
