Mesa 6.5.2 Build Failure s3v_state.c


I'm attempting to compile Mesa 6.5.2 from source, but I hit multiple errors on the file s3v_state.c, relating to undeclared identifiers "CARD32" and "cmd" mostly as far as I can tell. I'm on kernel 2.6.27. Can anyone help? Anything else you might need to know, just ask.

I'd guess you are building BLFS 6.3 on top of LFS 6.4 ??
It is a good idea to tell what you are using, every time
a question is asked.

Mesa 6.5.2 is old ( year 2006 ) and will probably compile
with gcc 4.1.x . No reason it should be fixed to be compiled
with anything much newer.
Solution : install (build) an older gcc or uncomment all
"s3" stuff. Or use a newer Mesa, if possible.

You can have as many different compilers, as you want.
example command: 'CC=/usr/local/bin/gcc-4.1.2 ./configure'
( Be careful if installing extra gcc in /usr/, libgcc**
can be overwritten, /usr/local/ or /home/ is better )

How is this issue handled by others, building BLFS ??
Suggest : try asking BLFS ...

Good Luck.
