Re: xserver master branch

Can you please explain me what is the situation..?
I'm trying to backport to etch xorg 1.3.0-5 compiling it against mesa
6.5.3 using pbuilder.
The build stops saying that it cannot found the mesa tree.
Compiling it against mesa 6.5.2 works.

If I install and compile mesa 6.5.3 later than xserver-xorg, will I
have problems?

Until the fine day when libGLcore can be built from the Mesa tree, I
suspect it may be better to split mesa-swx11-source off the other Mesa
packages - maybe just move it into xorg-server?
