Once again I am not expert, but I read a lot of x.org wikies, phoronix and etc and they argue, that mesa should be installed later.
Neither am I, thanks for the correction!

Hmm, I'm having some problems compiling xf86-video-ati.

It seems to be an issue with the sourcetree not being included, is this correct?

I have uploaded both my xorg.log and the errors from running the slackbuild script for xf86-video-ati

it looks like it doesnt run autogen.sh or configure. try to manualy
cd src/xf86-video-ati
./autogen.sh

and see if it is running or not, does it give any missing stuff errors etc. If it runs normally, configure file will be created.

OK, I tried autorun.sh by itself and got the same error about it needing the source tree, and util-macros is definitely installed and fine.

I have uploaded the error log, but it is the same as previously posted. Am I possibly missing a package?

Yep. For some reason, you need to have the xserver source tree somewhere on your disk and pass the path of it to configure. I already ran into that problem once.

You really don't. I've not needed the full Xorg source to build xf86-video-ati from git on Slackware 13.0. There is something very odd going on here.

Josh000, your log file shows (among other things):

checking for dri.h... no
checking whether to include DRI support... no
checking exa.h usability... no
checking exa.h presence... no
checking for exa.h... no

All those were yes on my build. Does /usr/include/xorg/exa.h exist? How about /usr/include/xorg/dri.h?

Wait a second here.... Now I remember you... http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nstall-762485/

Perhaps this is why you shouldn't go around installing what you believe to be the minimum number of packages necessary for a functioning X :-)

Adam

Hmmm,

I'm sure I have installed the necessary packages...not least to compile libdri and mesa. I wouldnt be surprised if I have left of a needed package, but I don't actually think that is the cause here.

I can't check for the presence of the files right now, but will as soon as I can.

Yes, exa.h and dri.h both exist in /us/include/xorg, as well as a whole host of other header files.

Attach the config.log file to a post here.

Hi Adam,

I was missing XI.h, which was inputproto. Installed that and ran again, and now it states there is no sys/endian.h

There certainly is no endian.h in /usr/include/sys, although there is one in /usr/include

Out of the few files that contain a file named endian.h, I have them installed or they don't seem appropriate. I certainly have glibc and kernel headers installed.

I have uploaded the config.log and the output of trying to run the slackbuild.

Thanks for your help!

From your build:

Code:
radeon.h:76:23: error: GL/glxint.h: No such file or directory
From my system:

Code:
[adamk@camaris packages]$ grep glxint.h *
glproto-1.4.10-noarch-1:usr/include/GL/glxint.h
glproto, another package you apparently decided you didn't need to install.

I wouldn't have normally except I am recompiling some of this X stuff.

Even so, installing a few extra proto packages is still a lot less than everything.

Thanks for your help though
