Description Alexander Grothe 2013-06-06 08:52:41 UTC
today I tried Arch Linux with xorg-server 1.14.1 on an old Laptop with a S3 Graphics Ltd. VT8375 [ProSavage8 KM266/KL266].

When I tried to start X I got this error:
/usr/bin/X: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/savage_drv.so: undefined symbol: miInitializeBackingStore

Removing this call from the driver fixes the problem:

-    miInitializeBackingStore(pScreen);

     if( !psav->shadowFB && !psav->useEXA )

As far as I can see this call is still used in the git repository:

Kind regards,
