Running X In 5.6
« on: November 10, 2014, 09:17:36 pm »
So the fix for the X problem in 5.5 narrowly missed the 5.6 release.  It is part of the 5.6 source, but it's not in the binary.  I assume the build for the Z starts earlier than other platforms given that it's built natively on a Zaurus and must take quite a bit longer.

To get the fix, do your upgrade/install to 5.6
Grab the xenocara.tar.gz from your local mirror.
Cd to /usr
Extract the tarball.
Cd to /usr/xenocara/lib/libpciaccess
Build with:
make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper obj
make -f Makefile.bsd-wrapper build

That will do the install as well.  Fire up X and you're good to go.

Don't worry, the build for just this library doesn't take very long.

Tim.

Should be in 5.7.

My Zaurus finally bit the dust, just before 5.7 released so I never got to try it.

They also stopped building packages for ARM, as the platform support was not up to standards.  There is an unofficial effort to produce packages.

I've done the "build everything natively on my Zaurus myself" but packages sure help a lot.  Compiling was the first thing to show signs of my Z failing.

Thanks for that update, Tim.....

Been so dang busy with work this year...haven't had time to play with Z or even read your last post until now.....

But maybe 5.7 would be worth a try if I get some time...

Hi TronDD

Sorry to hear about your Z biting the dust! I am surprised that my C3000 is still with us and that OBSD still supports the Z, or at least they still provide the base packages to get it installed!

I'm installing OBSD on my Z for the first time and ideally I'd like to remove any Linux partitions from my MD and have my Z boot directly into  OBSD. MIght you know how I'd do that?

I've detailed my efforts so far here https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=34386

Thanks!
