Default Modular X (X11R7) compatibility

Hi

Xorg X11R7 RC2 is out, and more and more distros are updating to this new modular version,
so it would be nice to have the installer pickup the new dir-structure.
(/usr/X11R6/lib moved to /usr/lib/xorg)

Nevertheless, installation of the stock drivers worked ok after shuffling
around some libs on Fedora Rawhide.

Maybe someone has already written a patch?
Zander?


cheers

Thanks,

hmm...

8174 still does install a lot of things into /usr/X11R6.
so this driver does *not* work with the modular x.
this is with fedora and xorg-0.99.3-9.

any fixed driver available nvidia?


thanks

This driver does work with a modular Xorg. Please try using the --x-module-path option.

For x86_64 you would use /usr/lib64/xorg/modules
For x86, you would use /usr/lib/xorg/modules

Thanks,
Lonni

libXvMCNVIDIA* files still get installed to /usr/X11R6/lib/
when using --x-module-path=/usr/lib/xorg/modules

the other files are installed ok.

8174 (and 7xxx) drivers work fine with X.org 7.0 when using Gentoo Portage.

Hi,

I've like always extracted the driver and installed it via an edited Makefile to the new path in /usr/lib and /usr/lib/xorg/modules.

Works here with (RenderAccel off): X Window System Version 6.99.99.902 (7.0.0 RC 2)
