Thanks for the patch!
I'm happy to report I *almost* have a working X server again! At
no segfault on startup. The only thing now is that the display is
incredibly dim, probably because of a few noted module load failures.
libint10.so and libvgahw.so both failed to load due to undefined
Oh, sorry. I produced the patch for the 1.6 branch, that being
currently in Debian testing. For the 1.7 xserver you also need to fix
up _alpha_inb, etc., to be exported. You also need the patch "Fix
undefined symbols on alpha". I am not at the computer with my patches
nevertheless you can find it at:
The xserver 1.7 nominations branch is at:
There are four patches for Alpha queued for the next Xserver release.
With the one mentioned above, and the one I already sent, you have the
two necessary to get the Xserver going. The other two are just
tidying up the code to reduce the number of compiler warnings.
