The only oddities I ran into (which I fixed, mostly):

As a KDE user, and one who sometimes switches keymaps (hey, sometimes I need to use a Spanish keymap; it's rare, but sometimes I do :D) kxkb was still trying to set the keybord model as "logiink" (Logitech Internet Navigator keyboard.) As of xorg-x11, that should be "logicink". Such a simple change, but it caused me to scratch my head.

That, and my mousetype is no longer properly detected by Protocol "Auto". I found that if I specify "IMPS/2", though, everything works fine.

Since I don't have any exotic needs, everything seems to be fine now. :D

Successfully switched to x.org yesterday.
Only one hint:
emerge -u world still wanted to install xfree, because of an incorrect dependency in lineakd.
Just copy the ebuild into your portage_overlay and change the DEPEND-Section at the beginning of the file, so it matches:
Code:
[snip]
DEPEND="virtual/x11
        xosd? ( x11-libs/xosd )"
[snip]

I already wrote a bug-report.

beginning of this forum, and everything seemed to turn out fine. But then, after unmerging xfree and merging xorg I found that I have no startx command. If I start /etc/init.d/xdm then the server starts up fine (and looks nice) but when I try to log in, I enter my username and pass, the screen blanks for a second and it takes me back to the log in.
Normally I start X by using the startx command. But that doesn't seem to exist. /usr/X11R6/bin/startx exists, but when I tried that it complained about "no such command as xauth." I looked in the file and commented that part out, just to see what would happen. Then it says "no such command as xinit."
The only thing I can think of that would do this is that I only emerge xorg, not xterm (or its two dependencies--rpm2targz and utempter). Am I going to need those? Or whats up?

EDIT: Sorry for the cut off at the top, it just says that I followed the instructions at... I'm doing this from links, and it might be messing up.

EDIT2: Silly me! I had updated something the same day and /etc/profile got removed. That prevented me from seeing startx on tab completion. Well... all's well now.

I got xorg running just fine... after compiling, I had to change the font paths in the old config I copied from xfree and that was about it. It looks pretty much the same so far.

Can't wait to see some of the freedesktop xserver merged in now :)

the solution isn't as complicated as that.

Its becuase xorg-x11 is still unstable.

Thats why it wants to install xfree becuase its the only stable app that satisfays virtual/x11

All you do is:
Code:

mkdir /etc/portage #if you haven't done already
echo "x11-base/xorg-x11 ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords


That should be it.

Now portage will know that you want to install unstable of xorg-x11, and therefore won't complain and try to install xfree.

just for the ones who are not sure if they should switch or not: i unmerged xfree, just emerged xorg-x11, copied XF86Config to xorg.conf, edited he font paths and that was it. works perfectly, loads faster but i didn't notice any other improvements yet. i was about to set up a linux box for my father this wee and decided to go with xorg-x11 completely, this one also works perfectly. so i suggest everybody to give it a try to help xorg-x11 move from ~x86 to x86 as quick as possible :-)

Help ? ;)


Kill Xfree, emerge -C it. set opengl-update to xorg-x11 if thats the glx you want. I just got your error myself and I can reproduce it, :? Seems if you have -pie in your USE flags it will compile but it will not work afterwards. So you will need to re-emerge while not having the pie active..

Hi there!

I just felt like thanking everyone in this thread for helping me build up the courage to dare to make the switch :)
Seems to me like font rendering is much more clear than in my old Xfree and it does seem a bit quicker. I love it!

Also "switched" to x.org server. Or more like did fresh install (had to do it anyway after repartitioning and stuff) and never installed Xfree in first place. Working now without trouble with Nvidia drivers 1.0.5341 and kernel 2.6.5-gentoo-r1 :) Can't wait to get KDE and the rest compiled.

Slightly offtopic, 2.6.5 kernel seems to boot up really quickly compared to 2.4.x, first time I was like wtf, is it broken and left some bootup procedures undone? ;) Also starting up X seems fast now. Then again I can't really tell since I'm stuck with twm atm ;) Only thing that troubles me is broken consoles after X starts (using framebuffer and not planning to disable it) and if I should switch to pure udev system or keep devfs.

This is crap!!
I cant make DRI to work. :evil:
I have 2.6.5-r1.mm-sources, ATI RADEON 9100

I unmerged xfree and emerged xorg.
Everything done smoothly.No errors no nothing.
I then run xorgconfig and Everything configured(actually exactly the same as xfree).
opengl-update xorg-x11
I run startx and I get 150 FPS in glxgears. :evil: :evil: :evil:
I cannot even load fglrx.

XF86Config-4 is more powerfull than XF86Config.Does the same goes with xorg.conf?

I even reemerge ati-drivers(again no errors at all) and removed xorg.conf and again nothing.

I folloed instructions found in this forum(symlink xorg->xfree and the like) but again nothing.

Has anyone the same specifications that managed to get this working and how?

I think your supposed to use:
"opengl-update ati"

not xorg-x11, i don't think xorg-x11 gives DRI. you installed the ATI drivers and therefore using "ati" opengl, it will use DRI.

Where did you get the Nvidia drivers 1.0.5341? There is no ebuild for it.

Hold on a minute.Since xorg is a fork of xfree, and xfree provides DRI, xorg should also provide DRI.Even by using xorg(without ati-driver) I couldn't make DRI work.And Xfree gives me a decent DRI,though ,I have to admit ,insufficient for gaming(~1900FPS).

Now I swithced back to xfree.I'll wait for a new version of xorg I think.

The following:

Quote:

[code]emerge sync
emerge --unmerge xfree
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge xorg-x11
etc-update, -3, y, y, y, y... etc
cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/xorg.conf
opengl-update xorg-x11
startx


Worked splendidly for me as well, I have one slight font problem with Mozilla but that should be fixed shortly. Thanks for the multiple guides and info all...

Yeah.

X11R6.7 -- Always wanted to run the original X Window System.

Just goes to show, it doesn't pay (or not pay, in the open source world) to expect everybody to bow down to you just because you maintain a windowing system. Or to write a license that's incompatible with the GPL and expect it to fly. Eric Raymond should have some interesting things to say about this.

I got it up and running, relatively painlessly. I don't think there's really any noticeable difference, even in games, but that's a damn good thing. I think that the differences people are talking about are mainly due to the placebo effect. We'll see new functionality soon, I would guess.

Have to say, it was a little easier to upgrade to X.Org on my laptop than on my Gentoo box -- Dropline Gnome on Slack included it this week. :)
