Drivers

Fixing an Xorg hang

As reported in http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/blfs-dev/2009-November/020242.html, the newport, vmware, and xgixp drivers cause Xorg -configure to hang. To fix this problrem, comment out these drivers in both driver-7.5-2.md5 and driver-7.5-2.wget.

Installation Script

  • Start a subshell, that exits on error, so that the loop does not continue if a package fails to build.
bash -e
  • Automated build of all packages. Comment out any packages that you do not want to install.
for package in $(grep -v '^#' ../driver-7.5-2.wget)
do
  packagedir=${package%.tar.bz2}
  tar -xf $package
  cd $packagedir
  case $packagedir in
  xf86-input-evdev-[0-9]* | xf86-video-ati-[0-9]* | \
  xf86-video-fbdev-[0-9]* | xf86-video-glint-[0-9]* | \
  xf86-video-newport-[0-9]* )
    sed -i -e "s/\xc3\xb8/\\\\[\/o]/" \
           -e "s/\xc3\xa4/\\\\[:a]/" \
           -e "s/\xc3\x9c/\\\\[:U]/" man/*.man
    ;;
  esac &&
  ./configure $XORG_CONFIG
  make
  make install
  cd ..
  rm -rf $packagedir
done 2>&1 | tee -a ../driver-7.5-2-compile.log
