just for the record I downloaded the 12.2 cdrom image and found out that it would probably work in a rw cd but I dont have one and could not verify that there was actually any usable data in the object. it was the right size but it has many bytes of 0000.
You should check the md5sum of the downloaded ISO image. The md5sums are posted alongside the images. On linux there's "md5sum" and on Windows there are facilities available for download to do this. This will verify that the image is OK before you burn it.

configure: error: Package requirements (x11) were not met:

Package x11 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `x11.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'x11' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XLIB_CFLAGS
and XLIB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I have X11 in my packages so I do not know what this means.

the xorg errors are here

that was a long post. I am very forgetful. I have trouble remembering things. once upon a time I could recall anything I saw and heard. not anymore. so I ask for a little patience. I get irritated at the arrogance of some people.


I captured the text. I knew that. but blanks aboud. anyway. the errors are not sensible in the sense that I have the elements involved and dont understand how they do not apply.

The errors you posted show that indeed, your version of X.Org is too old. You will not succeed by trying to compile individual packages.
Between Slackware 10.2 and present-day, X.Org switched to a "modular" architecture and Slackware followed suit. You will have to upgrade all of X. Which means, you will have to upgrade a lot of the underlying software infrastructure too.
Which leads back to my original suggestion that you should really consider installing a recent version of Slackware (12.x ... or wait for the release of 130 which will happen soon) if you need that viaopenchrome driver.

I guess the only thing for me now is to remember how to use dd to create the swapfiles. I know it is dd but I cant remember how I did it. it was in one of the man pages. but not any more.

You need a file in your filesystem that needs to be used as a swapfile? In that case check out http://www.xenotime.net/linux/doc/swap-mini-howto.txt section "5. Setting up swap space". It shows you how to do this.
