The good news is, vpackager built you a package for xf86-video-via-0.2.2
it just can't find it, but it should be in your /tmp/vpackager-builds/ directory

The bad news is, vpackager doesn't know how to build the rest of them...which indicates out-of-the-ordinary build procedures for these other packages

That also indicates the following facts about the rest of the packages
  • They do not ship with configure scripts
  • They are not CMake sources
  • They are not Python sources
if any of these were true, then vpackager would build them.

The only thing I can suggest at this point would be to manually extract each source tarball.
Look in the contents and see if you can find a file called "Makefile"
If it exists, try running "make" inside that directory
otherwise, I'm out of bullets

Sorry

Many thanks, MOE-Inx, you helped and taught me so much in this case...
I keep you posted after trying out your last suggestion,,,
If it doesn't work, it's fine with me (and then exeterdad was right on page 2.....)
Thanks :)

Hello again and... ::)
Yes, I found it (xf86-video-via-0.2.2) in /tmp/vpackager-builds.
There I also found
/via-20060403-linux.i386 and
/unichrome-X-r30

..........The only thing I can suggest at this point would be to manually extract each source tarball.

Sorry

In /via-20060403-linux.i386/drm/linux I found "Makefile" and "Makefile.kernel"
In /xf86-video-via-0.2.2 I found "Makefile.am" and "Makfile.in"
In /unichrome-X-r30 I found "Imakefile"
In /OpenSource_ubranch I found only two files...."libGL.so.1.2" and "/modules/dri/unichrome_dri.so".

I thought it through and I still don't want to give up on this issue...

But, because this is all kind of "Mandarin" to me I can't go ahead on my own...
Which of these ..makefiles.. do I have to consider???
What do I have to do with the "*.so"-files???
Maybe somebody has to nerve to help once more...
Many thanks in advance to everybody who has an idea/thought for me....

run make inside those directores and cross your fingers

if you dont see any errors, should be safe to run make install

otherwise I dunno

It's kind of hard to help on something like this. Especially because I dont own that kind of hardware, thus I would not get even close in the process to where you are..

After a little travel break, I returned to my Compiz project.
I started again with the command
Code: [Select]
root:# glxinfo | grep render and got this prompt
Quote
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
Yes, I want to find out why but I don't know how to do "try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose'
Any ideas?

Hi lagagnon and thanks for the reply.
I attached the files you asked for. Also for more information, the file via.4 which is from /usr/local/man/man4/via.4 after I installed the driver.

You are using the fbdev driver for whatever video card is in that Presario. I really don't think the fbdev driver will do direct rendering.

'lspci' tells me the video card is:
Quote
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [S3 UniChrome] Integrated Video (rev 01)

The driver I installed for this card with vpackager:
Quote
xf86-video-via-0.2.2

I don't know how to change xorg.conf so that this driver is used?

What alternative would I probably have for this on board
video card / video chip (VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [S3 UniChrome] Integrated Video (rev 01))?
