View Full Version : Xorg from source

First Post!

I am somewhat enw to linux, and though I can muddle my way around many things,much of linux still is beyond my grasp. That said:

How does one build and install X.org (X11R6 9.0) from source? The build process constantly returns what I suppose are minor errors (they do not trigger an about), before terminating in this

In file included from fcatomic.c:50:
../../extras/fontconfig/src/fcint.h:596: error: expected ‚)‚ before ‚encoding‚
make[4]: *** [fcatomic.o] Error 1
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: *** [World] Error 2
make: *** [World] Error 2

What happened? How do I fix it? I am currently running on basically a minimal install of Fedora Core 5, with only basic tools and build tools installed. The only other program I have had this compile was samba, which worked fine and seems to be running quite well now.
