Installing X 6.8
i am having trouble finding the dependancies on the web for X i have Xorg 6.7 and i want to upgrade to 6.8 the only thing is i know it needs more that just that package but what exactly. Xorg needs to get thier web site more organized. thier help documents say nothing about the dependancies that i could find.

i downloaded the tgz file and i am planning on upgrading using the package manager. i have looked on google and aside from not knowing german and spanish i can really find any useful upgrade information from a package level. i installed the package earlier and when i went to run x it gave an error about glib i think or something to that fact.

That is the official documentation. You could use the Slackware-current buildscripts if you want to. I'm not aware of a hoge list of dependencies for X. Most of the things are included with the source.I\'m so tired .....

There is not an official X.org 6.8.0 package for Slackware.I\'m so tired .....

That's probably the 6.8.1 package for Slackware 10.1 beta1 also known as Slackware-current. It is the package for that specific version of Slackware, it could or could not work on older versions.
The normal X package does not require special libraries as far as I know. It does require some basic stuff you'll already may have because they are basic system requirements (like glibc, zlib). However a desktop environment which runs on X (Gnome/KDE/XFCE/...) will require more.I\'m so tired .....
