With modular X, could including Source2 be avoided?
It adds 42.6M to the source rpm...

Other than that, seems like simply replacing :


with a nice "pkg-config xorg-server" call to the the extensions path could
be enough to fix the package for now.

Comment 3 Charles Lopes 2005-11-28 13:15:20 EST
So this will also fix the issue reported in #174382 with the hardcoded path to
SecurityPolicy on FC4 with non-modular X?
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-11-28 13:23:51 EST
That's why I marked it as a duplicate, yes.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2005-11-29 17:57:57 EST
4.1.1-23 has a first attempt.  Only the xorg-x11-server package needs bundling,
which reduces the source RPM size by quite a lot.  Unfortunately, the Xvnc
program needs an X server tree to build in -- the SDK is not sufficient.

I haven't tried to get the extension module built yet, just the Xvnc binary.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2005-12-01 04:52:12 EST
Okay, extension module built too.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2005-12-01 04:56:16 EST
..except the Xvnc binary crashes as soon as you connect.  Joy.
Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2005-12-01 10:15:52 EST
Okay, now it works and everything.

Doesn't work on x86_64.  Having `Load "vnc"' in xorg.conf causes X to not
display anything at all on the screen.  Commenting that line out, it gets back
to work.  On i386, this works just fine.  This worked up to -22, I believe,
although I think I still needed a symlink in the new extensiosn dir to point to
the old one.

The x86_64 problem is a separate bug report now: bug #174702.
