Bugs with recent xorg server


Not sure if this is the place to post as there does not seem to be a slackware "report bugs" facility. To catch the current momentum of the recent xorg server changes (11/16/07), i would like to propose a (temporary) solution to the fact that the "caps lock" led on keyboards no longer light up since xorg 1.4:

--- xorg-server-1.4/dix/devices.c.orig 2007-10-19 17:04:51.000000000 -0200
+++ xorg-server-1.4/dix/devices.c 2007-10-23 17:50:38.000000000 -0200
@@ -294,7 +294,17 @@ CoreKeyboardBell(int volume, DeviceIntPt
static void
CoreKeyboardCtl(DeviceIntPtr pDev, KeybdCtrl *ctrl)
{
+#ifdef XKB
+ if (!noXkbExtension) {
+ DeviceIntPtr dev = (DeviceIntPtr)
+ pDev->devPrivates[CoreDevicePrivatesIndex].ptr;
+
+ if (dev && dev->key && dev->key->xkbInfo && dev->key->xkbInfo->kbdProc)
+ (*dev->key->xkbInfo->kbdProc)(dev, ctrl);
+ }
+#else
return;
+#endif
}

This small patch was found on their mailing list some time ago, and it seems to fix the problem, but i do not know accurately the correct configure for xorg server so as to compile it myself (for it to be used in slackware).

the patch was listen in the bug tracker also
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12434

but it seems the current implementation of the bug is still far from perfect, as it caused a little regression
