Xorg issues. Part 2.

Ok, let's continue with it...

1) X Window System Components:

There's a "magick" cycle, attempting to make xorg installation as FHS compatible as possible. Here's an issue with it...

Let's check what's going on when we run it:

mv -v /usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit /etc/X11/ 2>/dev/null &&
# `/usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit' -> `/etc/X11/'
# we do NOT have /etc/X11/xinit after this, because /etc/X11 didn't exist
# we just moved all files from /usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit to /etc/X11 instead
# of creating /etc/X11/xinit
ln -v -s /etc/X11/xinit /usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit
# `/usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit' -> `/etc/X11/xinit'
# Therefore /etc/X11/xinit doesn't exist and we have broken symlink here

The solution is to run this before the cycle:

mkdir -p /etc/X11

2) Same section:

... You may want to put 100dpi fonts ahead of 75dpi fonts ...

It's already 100dpi fonts come first in

Did I something wrong?

3) Same section:

... The DejaVu fonts by are not aliased to the generic family names by default ...

It's a false. Just check /etc/fonts yourself...

4) Same section ...again:

... As the root user, create the configuration directory and move the configuration file to the new directory: ...

It's already created

Therefore '-D' option is not needed anymore here:

install -v -m644 -D ~/ /etc/X11/xorg.conf

5) xorg-server-1.5.3:

Current xorg-server has some issues with hal support. For example, it ignores xkb configuration from xorg.conf. The solution is in adding this to ServerFlags:

Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"

Owner: changed from blfs-book@… to DJ Lucas
Status: newassigned
  1. Issue not seen. What is the requirement (though probably not necessary anymore)
  2. Old example - needs fixed.
  3. Old information - needs fixed.
  4. Old information dating back to xorg 'monolithic' tree - needs fixed.

Option "AutoAddDevices" "false" should no longer be necessary in the default configuration.

Resolution: fixed

Fixed in r7985.

  1. Fixed anyway, as there may be cut-down installations that would not install /etc/X11.
  2. Reversed them.
  3. Removed.
