Hi,

since i upgraded to a more recent x-server (x11 overlay) i have 2 (relatively harmless) problems on which you hopefully have some hints for me.

1.
I am not able to compile libXaw-9999.
It just gives me: 'checking hacks in libtool for libXaw SONAME... grep: libtool: No such file or directory'
Even masking does not work for some reason. Wrote it into a file in my package.mask folder (other files inside this folder work for masking) but it keeps appearing on my update list.

2.
Is there a synaptics touchpad driver which works with the current x-server? The 'old' one fails to build with a recent x-server. It seems that this is a known problem.

I am appreciative for any help. :)

Try the x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics driver that got into portage a few days ago. This is the latest released version of the synaptics driver (0.15.0) from its new home at freedesktop.org. Currently, you might have to change the dependency in the xorg-server ebuild to this new name to prevent the old synaptics driver from being pulled back in again. This will hopefully be changed soon...

I haven't tried that ebuild yet. But looking at the changes made to libXaw since the 1.0.4 release it looks like there aren't any functional changes and just a few ones dealing with the build system. Maybe one of these changes didn't quite work. See http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libXaw/ for the commit history.

I would suggest you use the libXaw-1.0.4 ebuild from portage for now...

1.0.4 is already installed here.

edit:
ok the masking problem was my bad :D . Additionally i had a plain 'x11-libs/libXaw' in my unmask file :oops: . Now it works. thx for the help :)
