XFree86 4.5.0 compilation problem


Hi,

I'm now trying to compile XFree86 4.5.0 from source following the BLFS instructions, but I cannot compile it due to a persistent error, here's the relevant part of the xfree-compile.log file for you to see it:

Hi,

Thanks for the help, I effectively supposed the error was in the Flex installation as I proceeded to open the lexer.c file and I found everything to be fine except that variable yy_prev_more_offset, I even tried to declare it but it was useless and a very bad trick, anyway it didn't work

thanks

Julio

Hi,

It worked perfectly

now I have XFree86 4.5.0 installed with hardware support for my i915 chipset, although it has to be supported through the i810 driver ...

does anyone know if there's a better driver combination between the xf86 drivers and the DRI drivers to obtain support for i915 graphics integrated chipset?

Julio
