16 <title>X Window System Environment</title>
18 <para>This chapter contains instructions to build and configure a graphical
19 user environment.</para>
21 <para><application>Xorg</application>, in addition to clearing up some
22 licensing issues with <ulink url="">XFree86</ulink>,
23 introduced a completely auto-tooled build for the X Window system. This
24 means that the packages build and install using the conventional
25 <command>configure</command>, <command>make</command> and <command>make
26 install</command> commands, as opposed to a proprietary build system that
27 required hand editing of configuration parameters in a C-like syntax.</para>
29 <para><application>Xorg</application> also brought with it a modular build
30 system. While this separation into modules resulted in full control of the
31 features available to the X server on any given installation, it also made
32 the installation more tedious as it requires installing more than 100
33 different packages to obtain a functional X Window environment. Most large
34 commercial distributions have elected to use <application>Xorg</application>
35 over the <application>XFree86</application> distribution due to both
36 licensing issues and the increased functionality provided by it over
37 <application>XFree86</application>. With the modular build system, also came
38 incremental updates to individual packages. The distribution of
39 <application>Xorg</application> is given a release number by the developers,
40 in this case Xorg-&xorg-version;, and is referred to as the "katamari" by
41 the upstream developers.</para>
43 <!--
44 <para>Additionally, the BLFS book appends a build number
45 to the end of version string to indicate whether a group of incremental
46 updates has been applied, while still retaining the versioning scheme of the
47 upstream developers. For instance, Xorg-&xorg-version;-1 would indicate that
48 this is the 1st release, and is consistent with the katamari, while
49 Xorg-&xorg-version;-2 would indicate that individual package updates have
50 been applied to the katamari.</para>
