    xorg-server compilation


    Hello. I am trying to compile xorg-server for arm board. By that time i got a erro as
    Code:
    checking for GL... configure: error: Package requirements (glproto >= 1.4.9 gl >= 7.1.0) were not met:
    
    No package 'gl' found
    
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    So i googled then i found that gl and mesa is same. sp i compiled mesa. by that time i got an error as
    Code:
    tex-a8 -mfloat-abi=softfp -mfpu=vfp3 -ftree-vectorize -funroll-all-loops -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -std=c99 -ffast-math -fno-strict-aliasing  -fPIC   -D_GNU_SOURCE -DPTHREADS -DHAVE_POSIX_MEMALIGN -DUSE_XSHM  glx_api.c -o glx_api.o
    In file included from glx_api.c:34:
    ../../../../../include/GL/glx.h:38: fatal error: X11/Xlib.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.
    make[5]: *** [glx_api.o] Error 1
    Now can anyone help me how to fix this problem
    Thanks in advance...

    I am not too sure, but I think you are missing xlibs or xlibs-dev.

    i solved this problem after installing the X!! package and i copied the X11 folder from PREFIX and stored in Mesa/include. Now it works fine. thanks a lot.
    But i am getting different error now. when i try to compile "libXfont" i am getting this error
    Code:
    checking for FONTCACHEPROTO... yes
    checking for gzopen in -lz... no
    configure: error: *** zlib is required
    Configuration of glib library  has failed
    sharief@sharief-desktop:/mnt/freescale/sources/xwindow/libXfont-1.3.3$ vim configure

    Which distro are you using? Is there any reason for xorg-server compilation?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
