Description Anthony Kepler 2004-01-16 01:50:28 UTC
when attempting to build xcompmgr, I get the following:

root:/home/perlmonkee/download/xserver/xcompmgr# make
cc -o xcompmgr -O -g xcompmgr.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs xcomposite xfixes
xdamage xrender` -lm
/opt/fdo/lib/libX11.a(ConnDis.o): In function `GetAuthorization':
/home/perlmonkee/download/xserver/X11/src/ConnDis.c:1039: undefined reference to
/home/perlmonkee/download/xserver/X11/src/ConnDis.c:1196: undefined reference to
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [xcompmgr] Error 1

wow, it's amazing how if you stop and think for one brief shining moment, you
figure things out.  Adding xau to the list of libs to link xcompmgr against sets
things straight.
so erm uhh... I knew it all along, I was just telling *you*... thats right... right.

out of curiosity, is this still an issue with current CVS?  it looks autotooled
now, and my make output looks nothing like that.

marking as worksforme, please reopen if this continues to be an issue for you.
