Robert helped me with a problem with xserver last night.  Now I am
getting a shitload of errors for agp sstuff.  I think  I can ignore
that for now since Hurd doesn't support agpGART anyway and agp support
neeeds DRI which is broken in xserver.  As usual I am way over my head
at this point.  What would be the easiest way to skip trying to build
the agp stuff?  Just hack it out of the makefile?

Please do not modify the Makefiles, that will break portability.

The right way to do this is editing the config/cf/gnu.cf file.  You
can just put "define HasAgpArt NO" in it.  Just have a look at the
other config files.

If this way of building has changed (so if you are using the
freedesktop.org xservers that use automake for building) I can look it
up for you.


I don't know if anyone gives a shit or not but I am playing with this again. I manually ripped the agpstuff from the Makefile last night just to see what would happen. I did get further but it now chokes looking for linux/keyboard.h and linux/kd.h.

I am guessing that our only options at this point are either to build a hw/kdrive/hurd structure or attempt to fix the xorg xserver which I am told is severely broken.

Of course I have received about 3 different stories about x.org vs. xserver so far anyway... :-(
