New libdrm/mesa/xorg-server/xorg shaping up

For the past few days I’ve been working on merging the latest upstream release of xorg-server (1.5rc5) for Intrepid, which happens to require the recently released libdrm 2.3.1 and mesa 7.1rc. Had to merge xorg as well and rebuild the drivers that I need (kbd, mouse, intel), since the video and input ABI’s have changed. The intel DRI driver has a couple of bugs that prevent compiz from working, but hopefully they are fixed in the not-too-distant-future…

Today I’ve been trying to get mesa to use the new autotoolized build system, and it’s starting to look good. For reasons unknown to me, it still isn’t capable of building static and shared libs at the same time etc., so it actually copies the source and runs configure & make ten (10) times to build the various targets.. The sun is already rising, so hopefully the ongoing build finally looks normal so I can push this to git.debian.org and go to bed 😀
