Read how to fix it here:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76167

From the bug report
*****************
----- Additional Comment #13 From Joe Acosta 2005-07-22 13:49 PDT -------

It seems my build did not take all day, like I thought it would.

Okay after commenting out the 2 lines in directfbX.c XDirectFB now compiles to
completion. I believe that these two lines have to do with DPMS, so I am not
sure what the result will be by comment thse out.

My compiled XDirectFB is linked againt the correct DirectFB now, and after
chaning perms to 6755, and putting it in /usr/X11R6/bin manually, it is now up
and running.

The two lines are lines 705 and 706 in directfbX.c, which are

if ( layer->SetScreenPowerMode(layer, mode) == DFB_OK )
DPMSPowerLevel = level;

It seems that the SetScreenPowerMode has been moved from the layer to the screen
(http://www.directfb.org/index.php/viewcvs.cgi/DirectFB/tools/dfbinfo.c)

It runs okay otherwise.

1) I think the ebuild should fail to build, I don't know why it does not. When
I went into the directory I actually got an error on the compilation of that file.

2) I believe the current ebuild version needs DirectFB 9.18, I think or 19.


I created a local overlay and locally modified the ebuild as Joe suggests and it compiled.
I now have XDirectFB.

maybe a stupid question, but when following this procedure when already haing a running xorg-x11 server , will this configuration for XDirectFB override X.org and thus ensure you're having a framebuffered X ?

(a bit confusing atm, I must admit)

I can't get the server to start other than a brief instant with the light blue screen. After the instant, I only see an underscore sitting in the upper-left corner.

dfbserverrc:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

exec /usr/X11R6/bin/XDirectFB -enableRoot & DISPLAY=:0 & openbox & scim -d &

   If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your hardware is

This is probably a silly question, but I can't get the mouse to work at all, I think this is because i don't have libdirectfb_ps2mouse in inputdrivers. How can I solve this?

I have the same problem - I get it emerged, but the XDirectFB binary is missing. I also downloaded and tried to compile the source from directfb.org, but it failed during the make process. So...

Does someone just have a binary they're willing to post somewhere for us luckless clowns who just can't seem to get it working? Or else does anyone have a definitive how-to?

The irony is that people take a framebuffer on x86 for granted. On every other arch Linux has NO OTHER MEANS OF DIRECT CONSOLE OUTPUT. There is no hardware text output device. The SPARCstation doesn't use a text console, the boot monitor and all that actually run on a framebuffer, for example. The only real exception I can think of on the top of my head is the GameBoy Advance port, being that the hardware supports a tiled graphical mode (which resembles x86 text mode).

Is anybody living there? :)
I have some problems with installation of xdirectfb on gentoo :(
for xdirectfb-...-r1 ebuild: XDirectFB executable file not creating and no error message until merging operation;
for xdirectfb-...-r2 ebuild (previouse bug fixed as I understand): error during compilation in fcfreetype.c file for "#include" statement.
So, it all very obscure, many questions and no answers :(

Is /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/dfbserverrc the only conf file to alter ?

For ref, I found this small doc: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Setup_xdirectfb

What about multiple head ? anything like xinerama supported ? multiple cards ? multiple-output cards ?

Version of freetype (stable) and DirectFB (unstable) are:
Code:

[ebuild   R   ] media-libs/freetype-2.3.7  USE="X -bindist -debug -doc -utils" 0 kB
[ebuild   R   ] dev-libs/DirectFB-1.1.1  USE="X fbcon fusion gif jpeg mmx png sse truetype v4l v4l2 zlib -debug -sdl -sysfs" 0 kB


I ran revdep-rebuild already and remerged freetype and DirectFB. Can anyone help me with this and what to try next?

Thanks

Just a thought, but is DirectFB-extra doing anything special? I tried to emerge the corresponding version for a test but it fails due to an error conected to dfb_surface_soft_lock (complete error log if someone finds it interesting).
