Description Hopeless 2007-12-27 16:45:53 UTC
Emerging xorg-server on a new install (from a stage 2 tarball), and it fails at configure because it can't find xres.

This with xorg-server, but I would imagine it also applies to at least 1.4-r2, and with the following USE flag settings; USE="dmx dri minimal xorg -3dfx -debug -hal -ipv6 -kdrive (-nptl) -sdl -xprint"

The following is from the RDEPEND section of xorg-server-;           
        !minimal? ( >=x11-libs/libXtst-1.0.3
                >=x11-libs/libXres-1.0.3 )

It works fine after emerging libXres, so I suggest making it depend on that lib regardless of whether or not the "minimal" use flag is enabled.

I didn't catch the error message, as I didn't realize at the time it was just an ebuild issue, but I can unmerge libXres and re-emerge xorg-server to catch and post the error if required.

Reproducible: Always

I would really like the error, because then I can track down what exactly is pulling in Xres that didn't used to.

Please reopen when you reply.

I'm unable to recreate this now, so it should probably be marked INVALID.

After `emerge -C libXres && USE=minimal emerge xorg-server`, xorg-server- installs just fine, WITHOUT pulling in libXres.

Sorry for the long delay.
