Question Error while installing XFree86 on Redhat


Hi,

I am installing XFree86 on my linux machine.

Following are the steps I followed:
1. downloaded the XFree86-4.5.0-src-1.tgz to XFree86-4.5.0-src-7.tgz files
2. Untar them.
3. made directory build at xc level.
4. cd build
5. lndir ../xc
6. make World >World.log 2>&1

After completion of this command, I checked World.log and got the
following errors:

/exports/lib/libXfont.so : undefined reference to 'ssh_z_inflateEnd'
/exports/lib/libXfont.so : undefined reference to 'ssh_z_inflateInit2_'
/exports/lib/libXfont.so : undefined reference to 'ssh_z_inflate'

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [bdftopcf] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/nupur/downloads/XFree86/source/build/programs/bdftopcf'
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/nupur/downloads/XFree86/source/build/programs'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/nupur/downloads/XFree86/source/build'
make[1]: *** [World] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/nupur/downloads/XFree86/source/build'
make: *** [World] Error 2

Do I need to install zlib? But zlib is already installed in /lib.

Searching on google also did not help.

Can anyone of you please help me?

Regards,
nupur

Try Xorg?

Try X.org instead, many Xfree developers moved to that project.

Which distro is this?

What on Earth are you installing Xfree86 for?

undefined references are not nessisarily a problem, provided they get defined in time.

look through the makefiles and see what bdftopcf is doing to generate an error. It is possible you need to edit the top level makefile environments.

Not to point out the obvious, but wouldn't it be easier to install via RPMs?

You don't quite specify why you're installing it from source.

Angry Error while installing X11R6.8.2 from x.org

Thank you for your replies.

I am working on Redhat distribution-7.0, in which i've upgraded binutils, gcc, glibc, module-init tools. The kernel i am using is 2.6.12.

As my system was using 2.2 kernel and i wanted to upgrade it to 2.6, i had to upgrade the above mentioned packages. Now, I want to upgrade the GUI interface as well, which is not working in 2.6.12.

As per your suggestions, I have downloaded the source files from x.org and now after doing make world >world.log > 2>&1, I am getting the following errors in world.log

I looked for expat.h and the file is there itself. So, why the file cannot be found? I am not changing the hosts.def file. Do i have to make any configuration changes there?

Hope to receive replies this time as well.

Thanks and Regards,
Nupur

You are doing very well... do you have some compelling reason to stick with RH7? Basically, you will probably have to upgrade a lot more stuff (the rest of your libraries and devlopment libraries for eg.) - and this sort of thing will happen more and more.

You havn't said why you are installing from source? Maybe you cannot get rpm's for RH7 (likely - and there is a reason for this)?

A possibility would be to try rpm install of something like gnome wot depends on an up to date Xorg. Then it will fail with a list of packages to install first... but you'll probably find that a clean upgrade to FC4 will be easier.

I have to upgrade the RedHat7 distribution only, as I have some settings there which I cannot afford to loose. So, that is the issue. Rest all is working fine, all the services and all the other things are working perfectly fine, except for GUI interface. I need to get that working on RedHat 7 only.

I am not installing RPMs as I have installed everything from source itself, including the libraries and gcc. So, if i install RPMs I'll have to re-install glibc and other utilities through RPMs only. Also, I have an option in source to make changes according to my specification which i cannot do in rpm's. Also, the rpm's that are available are from redhat 8. so, that is again an issue.

I know I'll have to upgrade few more libraries but which libraries to upgrade I am not sure about.

Unhappy back to square one

I installed freetype2 and fontconfig with zlib separately as i was getting errors related to them.

Now, I got the following error:

../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `ssh_z_inflateEnd'
../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `ssh_z_inflateInit2_'
../../exports/lib/libXfont.so: undefined reference to `ssh_z_inflate'
/usr/lib/libfreetype.so: undefined reference to `ssh_z_inflateReset'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [bdftopcf] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/nupur/downloads/x.org/build-xc'

This is the same error i got when i was trying to install XFree86. And because of the same error, I moved on to x.org. This is what i call a perfect example of back to square one. What would be the next step? I have already installed zlib from its source using the following commands:

1. ./configure --prefix=/
2. make test
3. make install
4. ldconfig

And it installed successfully.

Any suggestions?
