# cp /etc/X11-orig/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# use "keyboard" Driver in config file (low case)
reboot
# if fails , restore links

I had some troubles , did i missed something ? :

  • keyboard map is srewed
  • some libs are missing (rxvt is ok, but not xterm)
  • glxinfo said no Direct Rendering (even after modprobe -v ati_agp )

There should be a more proper way to install it over Debian (with stow, dpkg hold …) is nt it ?

Well I give up for today,

Wanna help : http://who.is.free.fr/wiki/index.php?XWindow

Or from freshest sources (CVS) :

cd /usr/local/src/
cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xorg login && \
cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/xorg co -P xc
# (hit return)
cd /usr/local/src/xc
cp config/cf/xorg.cf config/cf/host.def

cat « EOF » config/cf/host.def

/* + user settings @ http://rzr.online.fr/q/xorg */
      #define ProjectRoot /usr/local/opt/Xorg-6.8.0
      #define NothingOutsideProjectRoot YES

      #define HasFreetype2 YES
      #define HasFontconfig YES
/* - user settings @ http://rzr.online.fr/q/xorg */

# EOF , and remove "?" if cut and paste from online ^
make World && make install
