Re: Building XFree 4.3
Hi everyone I'm tring to build Xfree 4.3 on my debian system because I
need a patch to the siliconmotion driver that has only been committed in
I'm trying two separate paths, and I'm stuck in either.
If you send us a diff, we can include it in the next release. Why do you

xfree86_4.3.0-0pre1v4 source package.
$dpkg-source -x xfree86_4.3.0-0pre1v4.dsc
trying to extract sources with
make: *** No rule to make target `source.make'. Stop.

# debian/rules setup

/usr/bin/make -f debian/rules stampdir/unpack stampdir/patch
make: Entering directory `xxx/xfree86-4.3.0'
test -d stampdir || mkdir stampdir
and if i try
