So... I managed to compile mesa after switching from mesalib-6.5.3 to mesalib-6.5.2 - it seems mesa was looking for a driver, nouveau.drm, that wasn't present in libdrm-2.3.0.
This time I use --prefix=/usr/local and after compiling mesa with "make linux-dri-x86", the build_from_tarballs script runs from beginning to end without error - although I did not use the -m /path-to-mesa-sources/ switch.
As a test (I need to go back and compile with the -m switch), I tried to run X without a .conf file and got this:
|Code Sample |
|X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.2|
Build Operating System: Linux 2.4.26 i686
Module Loader present
Unable to locate/open config file
Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA 2164W [Millennium II] AGP rev 0
New driver is "mga"
Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
Fatal server error:
Cannot run in framebuffer mode
I'm guessing the glx module is missing either because I did not use the -m switch or because I did not build mesa using make "make linux-x86"
Any other ideas would be welcome
