Description Jim Gettys 2004-02-25 09:35:47 UTC
Again, expat is often installed up stream, so it should not be used by default. This should be release noted as well, documenting a know to work version.

System Expat is currently used by Cygwin and SCO. I've created a preliminary Release note and will add Linux to the list of systems that use the OS provided version by default. Tell me which other OSes I should add.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-05 00:27:38 UTC
I just examined current sources and it appears to me that HasExpat should be enabled on Linux OS by default now in linux.cf. I believe you did the updates Egbert, could you comment on wether all OS defaults are correct for HasExpat or not and close this if you believe it is complete? Thanks
Comment 3 Egbert Eich 2004-03-05 10:59:11 UTC
Check RELNOTES.XORG for a list of OSes where it is the default. I'm still waiting for people to tell me on which versions it should not be default. Also I can make it default on more systems if I'm told that this is feasable. I will close this for now. If anyone wants to add systems create a new bug.
