unable to install xorg-macros 1.8


The problem comes when I install Mesa opengl, too many dependent software to install, which makes me crazy. When I install libpciaccess, i get 'must install xorg-macros 1.8 or later before running autoconf/autogen'.

Then I download macros-util-macros-1.8.0, then command ./configure, output:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating xorg-macros.pc
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating xorg-macros.m4

then command make all, output: Nothing to be done for all

then command sudo make install, output:

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/liujingyu/code/macros-util-macros-1.8.0'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
test -z "/usr/local/share/aclocal" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/share/aclocal"
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 xorg-macros.m4 '/usr/local/share/aclocal'
test -z "/usr/local/share/util-macros" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/share/util-macros"
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 INSTALL '/usr/local/share/util-macros'
test -z "/usr/local/share/pkgconfig" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/share/pkgconfig"
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 xorg-macros.pc '/usr/local/share/pkgconfig'
make install-data-hook
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/liujingyu/code/macros-util-macros-1.8.0'
rm -f /usr/local/share/aclocal/xorgversion.m4
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/liujingyu/code/macros-util-macros-1.8.0'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/liujingyu/code/macros-util-macros-1.8.0'

but i still got 'must install xorg-macros 1.8 or later before running autoconf/autogen', have i successfully installed it ??

First, try to reinstall xorg-macros with:

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
makeinstall
you installed it under /usr/local, which is a default behaviour, but many distro don't search in this path for libraries (you didn't specified your distro)

Code:
pkg-config --variable=pkgdatadir xorg-macros
this is the command that libpciacces configure launches to detect xorg-macros; in this directory _MUST exists_ a file named INSTALL

Thanks, is that better I always code './configure --prefix=/usr' ?

I am new to Linux, after all where have I installed xorg-macros, not found in /usr

usually, packaged binaries go in /usr/bin while self-compiled ones go in /usr/local/bin; but it's distro dependant, this is done to keep /usr/bin from "dirty" binaries which you must remove manually, instead of a 'apt remove package'

but, many distros/packages forget to search in /usr/local for the files they need, so you need to install in /usr rather than /usr/local;

if you want to remove a package you installed from sources, just do the ./configure again and 'make uninstall' (not every package has this functionality)

Much thanks, but here comes a similar problem, shows
Code:
Package requirements (x11 xext xdamage xfixes x11-xcb xcb-glx >= 1.8.1 xcb-dri2 >= 1.8 xcb-dri3 xcb-present xcb-sync xshmfence >= 1.1) were not met.
Then I follow the steps on the web, code:
Code:
sudo apt-get install libx11-xcb-dev libxcb-glx0 libxcb-glx0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev
but not work, path again ?

No, in that case I would point that some of the system packages are outdated, try

Code:
sudo apt-get -s xcb-glx
I think your version is <= 1.8.1, just update that package, xcb-dri2 and xshmfence

wrong command, it's

Code:
apt-cache show xcb-glx
or simply

Code:
sudo apt-get install xcb-glx
should install/upgrade to the latest version

unable to locate it and before that I code
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade xcb-glx
the Synaptic Package Manager shows I have installed libxcb-glx0 and libxcb-glx0, both 1.8.1 version. So back to the problem
Code:
Package requirements (x11 xext xdamage xfixes x11-xcb xcb-glx >= 1.8.1 xcb-dri2 >= 1.8 xcb-dri3 xcb-present xcb-sync xshmfence >= 1.1) were not met.
What should I do ? Can these pkgs be installed together ?
