Description Boris 2006-11-26 14:39:17 UTC
When compiling the common protos and libraries from git (except non essential 
Xinerama protos and libs) causes xserver to error out with an undefined

Since Xinerama is a non essential library, it seems that xserver has a bug when 
it's not available. Can anyone please fix this? Thanks.

I found a temp fix but it's not an appropriate fix. If you have the Xinerama 
proto's installed and to try to configure Xserver with --disable-xinerama, that 
causes the undefined reference to `SyntheticMotion'. If you take that out, 
(xserver will find the headers then) it compiles properly. Maybe some checks or 
ifdef's aren't defined properly in the xserver package?

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

Unable to reproduce with server-1.5-branch.  Calling this one fixed.
