Re: XFree86 Build for 1.5.0/1


I know we have a dependency on ncurses... and possibly jpeg, png, and/or tiff. However, I think all of those have been updated, no?

I have never subscribed to this mailing list before, but it looks like
this is where the real business of Cygwin takes place.  I started
reading the archives of the 1.5.0/1 discussion today and realized that
some other people might be waiting for me to release an updated build of
XFree86 for 1.5.0/1.  In any case, if I don't start working out the
kinks of such a rebuild I will probably never get it right.

Just wanted to drop a heads-up here that I will be starting work on this
shortly.  I am now subscribed to the list, so you can reach me here or
on cygwin-xfree with questions/suggestions.

I would suggest starting with XFree86-bin, since this contains all the libraries, right? Once the libraries are released, other people can start compiling XFree86 packages for 1.5.x (or their own X apps). The actual apps can come along piecemeal after that, I think.

I don't think X apps compiled with 1.5.1 against the old 1.3.x X
libraries will work.

But, I am not a Cygwin expert (IANACE), so hopefully others on this list
will correct me if needed.

I Am Not A Cygwin Expert? That's a new one of the OLOCA...

Aaah yes. If the XFree86 packages use other packages' libraries then you will have to wait until they are updated before updating the XFree86 packages.
