Re: XFree86 4.3 strange library behaviour
Hi James William,
I'm running woody with the .1 update
and have just compiled XFree86 4.3 on my system.
The problem I'm having is that libXTrap.so.6 and libXv.so.1
(maybe others too) are not found
Any pointers to what may be causing this?
Debian has very active and expert X maintainers
(last week i saw branden fix a potential problem with kernel 2.6,
which hadnt bothered anybody yet).
If you think you can get better result by compiling XFree86 new version
then they can
(if it could be done without problems, they would already have done it),
then you run the risk of things not working perfectly.
And you lose possibility to get support, because nobody knows what state
your system is in now, not even you.
Why not simply upgrade to unstable ?
I think you just underestimate difficulties involved.
hope this helps,
