The packages in ftp://ftp.x.org/pub/X11R7.3/src/everything/ don't work together. It appears that some of the driver packages are old versions. This is the case for at least the following packages: xf86-input-evdev, xf86-input-vmmouse, xf86-input-void. And there may be more (I only compile the ones I need).
Also, there are two versions of damageproto in that dir.
Note: I had to specify the version as "unspecified" in the bug tracker, as there is no 7.3 option.
quite clearly not a 7.5 issue.
Actually, 7.4 had the same problem.
Alan, is this valid?
As far as I know we always had the right versions of the maintained drivers
in those directories, and all the drivers mentioned in the description are
well maintained. Many of the older, unmaintained input drivers may not
have worked - but we've mostly solved that by dropping them completely.
X11R7.3/src/everything/ only has damageproto-1.1.0, not two versions.
As I can't see any problems, I'm closing - if you still see issues, then
please reopen and provide details of what was wrong with the included
versions and what you expect the included versions to be.
I don't recall the exact problem, and I doubt that anyone still cares.
I do remember that there were issues with multiple packages.
And there still are two versions of damageproto, damageproto-1.0.3 and damageproto-1.1.0.
Strange, the ftp & http versions are out of sync - they should be the same,
I guess the mirroring isn't quite a full sync.
