xorg-x11-server package needs rpm build requirement on libdrm-devel
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:17 EST
When trying to build the modular X server, the build died in configure with this
checking for LIBDRM... configure: error: Package requirements (libdrm) were not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively you may set the LIBDRM_CFLAGS and LIBDRM_LIBS environment variable s
to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for
After installing libdrm-devel the problem went away. I think you probably have
a missing BuildRequires for libdrm-devel in the xorg-x11-server spec file.
Fixed in xorg-x11-server-0.99.3-6
