RE: XFree86 4.3.0 rawhide information and rebuilding for other distro releases



Mike, 

Just a question from a careful guy. Are those rawhide rpm's pretty safe to install? I have RH9 working with dual DELL 1702 TFT screen on a Radeon 7000 VE. Will this still be working? 

And I also want to thank you guys at RedHat for the great work you are doing. RH rules I reckon! 

Regards,

Andre Verheij

That isn't rawhide though is it.  ;o)

The savage driver hasn't changed since 4.3.0-2 which is in RHL 9 
that I recall.  But if you're using RHL 8.0, it's a new driver 
compared to that.

You edit the spec file and set the build_$target to 1 for the OS 
target you wish to build for, and set all other targets to 0.  
Then edit the Release: line and add your initials to it.

ie:

Release: 30

becomes

Release: 30.as

or something similar.  Then do:  rpmbuild -ba XFree86.spec

Then rpm -Uvh XFree86-*4.3.0-$release*i386.rpm
