Since 2004 it still even ain't in the mainstream

Just started rebuilding xorg-server myself, but accidentally stumbled upon this package.
So glad that did not have to go through the hassle.
Thanks, kyak.

This patch ought to be merged into the Extra btw, since freedesktop people refuse to fix their own fumble.

This package should be official!

This patch should belong to the official PKGBUILD, imo.

kyak commented on 2016-04-08 12:39

Really? How is that?

hussam commented on 2016-04-08 12:17

It is still one of the main reasons people accidentally break ABIs.

kyak commented on 2016-04-06 16:13

Tell it to at least 16 people who use this package (judging by the number of votes). Some of them probably us it on several machines.

But anyway, you seem to have a lot of spare time to comment on useless packages and patch PKGBUILDs yourself.

hussam commented on 2016-04-06 15:51

Why make a whole new package for just one patch? Just edit the official PKGBUILD, add the patch and recompile.

As a first step, as I mentioned below, try building the original xorg-server using ABS. This shouldn't be any different than building xorg-server-bug865 package from AUR (in terms of setuid bit on Xorg.wrap).

If you have the same problem when building from ABS, then it is not a problem of this package. This is either a problem of your setup, or the problem of original xorg-server package.

I will not deviate in ANY way from the original xorg-server package, except for applying that patch for bug865.

after build&install that, startx doesn't run. need to set SUID:
sudo chmod u+s /usr/lib/xorg-server/Xorg.wrap
after that startx is running.
this behaviour appears on any of the three my arch systems.
if you want you could try to install arch on VBOX through the steps of installing to Xorg and change it to bug865 update.
may be I'd skip or made some wrong operation that led to the loss SUID bit on building bug865 of X.
