    Installing Xorg on NetBSD


    Firstly: what's up with this "modular" stuff? Can you install modular vs monolithic Xorg/XF86?

    Secondly: Am I blind or isn't there a page somewhere detailing the actual installation of Xorg/XF86 on NetBSD and not just this configuration?

    I found http://wiki.netbsd.se/How_to_install_modular_Xorg and if I follow those instructions the build fails installing the server module:

    "make: don't know how to make /usr/share/tmac/andoc.tmac"

    "WARNING: *** Please consider adding c++ to USE_LANGUAGES in the package Makefile" (and the same for Fortran)



    I've tried adding C++ and Fortran in various ways:
    USE_LANGUAGES= c
    USE_LANGUAGES+=c++
    USE_LANGUAGES+=fortran

    and

    USE_LANGUAGES= c c++ fortran

    Not sure if either are correct syntax but the build still fails.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Also isn't there a way to update the pkgsrc tools or does this happen when you do a full update using "cvs update -dP" in /usr/pkgsrc?

    hi,
    I using Xorg on NetBSD before.. If you tried build this from pkgsrc repository your should add X11_TYPE=xorg and USE_LANGUAGES+=c to /etc/mk.conf file.
    I doing update my repository thus
    cvs up -PfAdC pkgsrc
