Upgrading Slack 10.2 to X11R7.1
Hi, I'm trying to upgrade my X.org because Slack 10.2 (apparently) doesn't come with the X11 evdev driver, and doesn't come with the X source packages. In order to satisfy the dependencies for building X with Mesa/DRI support, I built DRM and Mesa from source (since I can't find source packages for Slack for those either). I also updated to pkg-config 0.20 (latest).
I tried following the instructions here:
I assume that this is the *only* way to build the latest version of x.org. However, while running build-from-tarballs.sh (for older tarball build, using the 'everything' option), it quits on this error:
WTF? To build X I must have X installed?
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for XEXT... configure: error: Package requirements (xproto x11 xextproto xau) were not met:
No package 'x11' found
No package 'xextproto' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XEXT_CFLAGS
and XEXT_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
I also did a search for 'x11.pc' (locate x11) and 'xextproto.pc'. Neither gave any results, even in (build-prefix)/lib/pkgconfig.
Can anyone help out?
