use of longs in xfree86 3.3.3-1 nVidia driver
I'm building xfree86 3.3.3-1 from the debian sources.
For alphas, the SVGA server is built without nVidia support,
so I figured, why not try building one with the nv driver?
But when I skimmed over the sources in xxx/vga256/drivers/nv, I
noticed extensive use of longs in the code.
When I see longs in code I am trying to build on my alpha,
I allways get suspicious. Most of the times, the programmer's
intention was to use 32 bits, not 64 bits.
Does someone succeeded in building and running the nVidia
driver of xfree86-3.3.3-1 on an alpha?
Thanks in advance,
