AFAIK, if you compile old versions of X (without DRM & DRI), then
the kernel portion of the graphics card drivers are the ones
from the kernel sources. If you use DRM/DRI, then these drivers
could be from the X source tree. The (now unnecessary?) precautions
I took because alsa would have hidden the same type of problem if
it was introduced when direct rendering became standard in X.

BTW the problem with glibc was because I used --enable-kernel=...
(not recommended in the book), and part of the rpc code build
process (used to?) detect the current kernel version instead
of the kernel that the rest of glibc was being compiled for.

Sorry - I just missed the question. Learning how to lobby against
impending EU software patents takes so much time that a lot of LFS
related mails get deleted unless the title gets my attention. I
normally keep my own posts around for a couple of days to mark
replies and avoid missing questions like yours. Please blame the error
on reading patents - that can turn anyone's brain to sludge.


Can we ban software patents on the grounds that having to read them
is a cruel and unusual punishment?
