Slackware 10.1 - Xorg R7


Hi everybody.... a long time without posting but now Im with a litle problem...


Im trying to install berryl (or compiz) but first I must upgrade my xorg 6.8 to xorg 7.x to be able to use these programs.

Okay, so I tried (After some help in #slackware) the pinkibuild.sh script that was made to automate the download of those 200 xorg modular pakages (as it seens its no more possible to find the monolithy pack). After sometime I get some errors. And in the and no slackware package or xorg 7 was compiled and installed.

So My question is if there are any other way to upgrade xorg... I saw that even slackware 11 dont come with xorg 7 its still on 6.9... so any easy way to make my xorg be the R7 series ?
If I upgrade my slackware to version 11 will be possible to ran pinkibuild.sh without errors (maybe it was done thinking in the slack11 libraries and stuff so this is why I get the errors...)??

Well... any ideias of how to best compile Xorg 7 will be very apreciated... thanks in advance..

cheers [ ]'s

Upgrade to current.
Or give us some proper error msg-s so we can help.

Not to bitch about it but:

What's the use of this anyhow?

Are you asking what the use for me, here, or general use ?

And why the question ?


And just to update.... Im not getting any error message or this kind of thing, I was just asking if there are any easier way to update xorg in slackware 10.1 ... but no need to worry anymore, its already update and running beryl now. =)

Well in general, not just you. Well maybe a bit: if you have a cert in linux, you should know how to ask proper questions (I'm pointing towards the error-msg part).

Nevermind, no offense really. Glad it's working.
