Re: Hotplugging: VGA to alubook 5,8 [was: Re: getting wireless and dvi out [ ... ]]



Hi Bin, Hi All

To compile the radeon driver, what's the correct way if
I need radeon on a alubook 5,8:

something like this:
-------------------------------
git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati
cd xf86-video-ati
./autogen.sh
make
[from http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12552]
-----------------------------


or better that one:
---------------------------------
3. git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati 
4. cd xf86-video-ati 
5. git checkout origin/randr-1.2  (Git-Version 1.5) 
    git checkout randr-1.2 (Git-Version 1.4) 
6. ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr (or any home-directory, but then you have to 
copy the files manual to the correct directory) 
7. make
[from http://www.nabble.com/radeon-tv-out-tf4221095.html#a12103267]
--------------------------------

What's the difference between the 2 methods above, i.e. what does this
'checkout origin/randr-1.2' ('checkout randr-1.2') snippet make
different, compared to the first way of compiling ... ?

Best Regards, and Thanks in anticipation
Wolfgang
