Unichrome driver installation


Hello ,

Here is my problem.I'm using a motherboard with integrated VGA, Unichrome S3.
SourceForge has a driver available which I'sure it spport it ,so I downloaded that.I have to confess that I hae little experience compiling drivers so I need help.Here is what the readme file says:

________________________________________________________________________
Building The Unichrome Projects drivers for your X version:
-----------------------------------------------------------

WARNING: The content of this file is about building and installing this
driver yourself. This will not make your package manager happy. You might
also want to back up via_drv.o/so and the manpage first.

If you run into any difficulties, please contact the unichrome-users
mailinglist at unichrome-users@lists.sourceforge.net . Subscribe at
http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman...nichrome-users first.


1) Monolithic X:

Applies to xfree86 4.3.x and 4.4.x, and X.org 6.7.x, 6.8.x and 6.9.x.

1.1) Against a full X tree:

This requires that a sufficiently built X tree is present (see 1.2
otherwise). The top level directory of an X tree tends to be named xc/.
Replace <path_to_xc> with whatever is suited for you.

From the top level, in xf86-video-unichrome/, (the same level as this
file) run:

xmkmf <path_to_xc>
make Makefiles
make
make install

1.2) Preparing an X tree:

...

1.3) Against the SDK/DDK:

...

2) Modular X:

This is only suited for the X.org 7.x release.

...
????
what is xmkmf ??? tried man no result.....
please HELP !

first of all....if you are using a Unichrome Pro(mine) then you wont be able to use the sourceforge project's code. They dont have support for them yet. You will want to use the IVOR projects's code. But it looks from your post tha you are usin IVOR. xmkmf is something for enhanced video playback(maybe not). I personally could not get the unichrome IVOR to work with my www.openchrome.org is the website you want if you have a Unichrome Pro. Unichrome Pro devices are:
K8M800
K8T800
K8N800
there may be more
