My first concern would be: What else is out of place? Are all/most packages done during Xorg Protocol Headers in their proper locations?

Quote:
but now another new error occurs which is as follows

../../../include/X11/Xlibint.h:905:12: error: old-style parameter declarations in prototyped function definition
../../../include/X11/Xlibint.h:907:1: error: parameter name omitted

There's not enough info to work with.

BTW: Can you post what I asked for in my previous post.

That is a dangerous assumption, especially when you have prove that one was installed in a different location then expected. Not getting an error doesn't mean it is installed in the correct location. You decide which X environment is being used, making a mistake or not setting the correct variables can cause this.

I asked about this in post #8, did you actually check all the packages? You're not to clear about that.

If I look at the lib_compile_log I see something strange: The compilation keeps going after an error is found, which should not happen, it should stop immediately (due to this command: bash -e

Another thing: How is it I still see this: checking for X11... configure: error: Package requirements (xproto >= 7.0.17 xextproto xtrans xcb >= 1.1.92 kbproto inputproto) You said in post #15 that this was fixed.

Although by now I'm not sure if the proto_compile_log is still relevant, there are no obvious/relevant errors.

the x environment variable are set as follows

root [ / ]# echo $XORG_PREFIX
/usr
root [ / ]# echo $XORG_CONFIG
--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/share/man --localstatedir=/var
root [ / ]#

i think this are the previously written as i didnot remove the log file.

The advise given in post #12 might be a good idea.

You redid all of chapter 24 up to the Xorg Libs?

Quote:

This looks correct. Remember: The sub-shell is started in the current shell, you won't see much of a difference. You can look at SHLVL (echo $SHLVL, it should increase by one if you start a sub-shell and decrease again after you exit.

As mentioned in post #12: All of chapter 24.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Asked about this in post #18 (and #8):
- Did you check the installed packages?

How about the concern I mentioned in post #16:
- Did you remove the packages that are out of place (you know of at least one: xproto.pc in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/).
- Are more packages installed in /usr/local/ instead of /usr and did you remove those packages?
- Have you figured out why some packages have been installed in the wrong location?

And would you be so kind and answer _all_ the questions this time. You have a tendency to only answer part of my replies.

Hope this helps.

Hi again,

I'm pretty sure you made a mistake when you installed Xorg Protocol Headers. If I look at the following (from your original post):
Quote:
checking keysym definitions... /usr/local/include/X11/keysymdef.h /usr/local/include/X11/XF86keysym.h /usr/local/include/X11/Sunkeysym.h /usr/local/include/X11/DECkeysym.h /usr/local/include/X11/HPkeysym.h
I see that files are found in /usr/local, which is incorrect. These files are part of the protocol headers and should reside in /usr.

You might have correctly re-installed the Xorg Protocol Headers at a later stage (although I haven't seen any evidence to support this), but the files associated with the protocol headers in /usr/local should be removed. At the bottom of the Xorg Protocol Headers chapter (Contents) the correct directories are mentioned. Cross-reverence these with those in /usr/local.

Hope this helps.

how do i check the installed packages?

there were other packages installed on /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ i removed every packages

Quote:

yes there were more packages installed and now i removed the packages from /usr/local/include/X11, /usr/local/include/GL. Should i delete other files and directories in /usr/local?

Quote:

I think while installing xorg protocol for the first time i did not set XORG_PREFIX variable which caused the problem.

Quote:

I apologize for this.

Quote:

should i delete the entire files present in /usr/local or only deleting from /usr/local/include/GL and /usr/local/include/X11 is enough?

As mentioned earlier: Check the bottom of each chapter (the Contents part), it mentions what is installed and where. If you made a mistake with the XORG_CONF setting you might need to cross-reference.
Quote:

All of them? That might not have been too smart. /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ is a valid location and depending on what you have installed previously (not talking about X) you might have thrown away valid files and created a possible problem. But without knowing what is/isn't installed yet it is hard to point out anything specific.
Quote:

You should only remove those files and/or directories that are related to X. The 2 directories you mention should be removed (/usr/local/include/X11, /usr/local/include/GL).
Quote:

You might want to include XOR_PREFIX in your profile, that way it is set every time you log in. (add export XORG_PREFIX="<PREFIX>" and export XORG_CONFIG="--prefix=$XORG_PREFIX --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=$XORG_PREFIX/share/man --localstatedir=/var" to root's .bashrc).
Quote:

You only remove that what is relevant, other packages are also installed there and those you need to keep. So you do not delete everything in /usr/local

Hope this helps.
