Comment 1 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-11-20 02:07:34 UTC
Please also report this bug upstream at
For the upstream report, give the exact configure options that are mentioned at the beginning of build.log
Comment 2 Benda Xu gentoo-dev 2011-11-28 04:06:11 UTC
It it because of this commit 5 years ago:

Does it imply xvfb cannot be built without xorg?
Comment 3 Benda Xu gentoo-dev 2011-11-29 04:12:42 UTC
Reported to upstream at
Comment 4 Benda Xu gentoo-dev 2011-11-29 07:35:26 UTC
got an upstream patch from Alan Coopersmith[1], which needs to be applied to the xorg git master branch. Tested to work on my setup.

A xorg-server-9999 ebuild testing the patch is submitted for review. 

BTW, xorg git source needs >=inputproto-2.0.99, I also made one just by renaming, thanks to the coolest xorg-2.eclass.

Failed Patch: xorg-server-disable-acpi.patch !

Am I doing it wrong?
Comment 7 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-12-06 17:28:10 UTC
xorg-server-disable-acpi.patch is obsolete and no longer applies.
Comment 8 Robin Bankhead 2011-12-08 01:31:44 UTC
Got it eventually (the nouveau patch should also be taken out). It builds successfully on my system.
Comment 9 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2011-12-08 09:08:25 UTC
I don't know where you got that ebuild from, but it is not what is currently in the x11 overlay.

It's the one attached above in comment #5. Though it's not from the overlay, it does demonstrate that the patch works, no?
Comment 11 Ivan Kasatenko 2011-12-24 14:14:18 UTC
Building with the ebuild attached already requires even newer inputproto. Since I've got it on a production server, I have no will to live on the bleeding edge.

So I've managed to compile it by creating a portage overlay from the stock xorg-server-1.11.2-r2.ebuild and adding "--disable-unit-tests" to XORG_CONFIGURE_OPTIONS. 

Might work as a temporary fix.
Comment 12 Benda Xu gentoo-dev 2012-01-01 05:46:48 UTC
the patch is merged into xorg git and gentoo version xorg-server- verified on amd64 to work.

Please test and we can close this bug soon.
Comment 13 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2012-01-01 12:21:16 UTC
Marking as fixed per comment 12.
Comment 14 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-01-01 17:56:28 UTC
this is broken in stable :(.  any chance of getting that fixed ?

Pass --disable-unit-tests via XORG_CONFIGURE_OPTIONS as per comment 11 or just wait ;)
Comment 16 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2012-01-02 00:40:59 UTC
Created attachment 297589 [details, diff]

The upstream patch does not apply cleanly against xorg-server-1.11. See if the attached patch helps (needs eautoreconf). It causes the following warning though, which I don't know how to fix:

 * Running elibtoolize in: xorg-server-1.11.3/
 *   We've already been run in this tree; you should
 *   avoid this if possible (perhaps by filing a bug)
Comment 17 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-01-15 00:28:07 UTC
(In reply to comment #16)

yes, this patch fixes my stable build.  that elibtoolize warning is due to failings in the autotools-utils eclass.
Comment 18 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2012-01-16 00:44:41 UTC
Patch applied to xorg-server-1.11.2-r2 and 1.11.3 too.
Comment 19 Robin Bankhead 2012-04-02 18:47:12 UTC
Just had a build of xorg-server-1.12.0-r1 fail on another box (~amd64, same USE flags) with this message:

*** No rule to make target `ddxstubs.c', needed by `ddxstubs.lo'. Stop.

Is this related by any chance? Wanted to check before starting a separate bug.
Comment 20 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2012-04-02 20:07:22 UTC
(In reply to comment #19)
That is , a totally different issue.
Comment 21 Benda Xu gentoo-dev 2012-04-03 02:35:41 UTC
I remember I have also tested xorg-server-9999, ddxstubs failed in another way at linking stage.

Just wondering how about just disabling test without xorg,

    $(use_enable xorg unit-tests)

Upstream seems do not test before release if their code could compile with xorg disabled, this kind of bug would happen yet again.

Thanks for that.  Should I file it here too, or just wait til upstream fix it?
