    Ok, I keep running into a problem at the autogen.sh stage. aclocal seems to be giving me a problem.

    Code:
    % ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/
    Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/autoreconf line 174.
    Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/bin/autoreconf line 174.
    autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
    autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext
    autoreconf: running: aclocal  --output=aclocal.m4t
    Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 288.
    autoreconf: failed to run aclocal: No such file or directory
    I first received an error involving autoreconf. Turns out it was not installed on my system. I installed the package and now the above output is where I am at now.

    Hi,

    I've manage to patch, compile and install the driver. My xorg.conf now shows

    (II) RADEON(0): Port0:
    Monitor -- AUTO
    Connector -- VGA
    DAC Type -- Primary
    TMDS Type -- None
    DDC Type -- VGA_DDC
    (II) RADEON(0): Port1:
    Monitor -- AUTO
    Connector -- DVI-I
    DAC Type -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
    TMDS Type -- Internal
    DDC Type -- DVI_DDC
    (II) RADEON(0): Port2:
    Monitor -- AUTO
    Connector -- STV
    DAC Type -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
    TMDS Type -- None
    DDC Type -- NONE

    But I don't know how to setup my xorg.conf. Anyone knows how or could show me a working xorg.conf with vga and tv out working?

    Default Configure error

    I have a strange configure error:
    Code:
    checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... (cached) yes
    checking whether gcc accepts -g... (cached) yes
    checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... (cached) none needed
    checking dependency style of gcc... (cached) gcc3
    ./configure: line 20150: syntax error near unexpected token `XINERAMA,'
    ./configure: line 20150: `XORG_DRIVER_CHECK_EXT(XINERAMA, xineramaproto)'
    And honestly, I have no idea where that comes from.

    My machine is a standard Fedora 7 which is up2date so the setup is comparable to the one used in the review/howto. And I have almost all xorg-x11 packages installed, the only ones missing are some drv*devel packages for drivers I do not use.

    Does anyone has any idea?

    Do you have xorg-x11-server-sdk?

    I also had the same error, which I resolved by installing aclocal and/or automake (don't recall specifically which).

    I still have another problem... following the instructions posted, after running ./autogen.sh I get the following results

    Code:
    [root@localhost xf86-video-ati]# ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/
    autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
    autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext
    autoreconf: running: aclocal
    autoreconf: configure.ac: tracing
    autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Libtool
    autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf
    autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoheader
    autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force
    src/Makefile.am:50: Libtool library used but `LIBTOOL' is undefined
    src/Makefile.am:50:
    src/Makefile.am:50: The usual way to define `LIBTOOL' is to add `AC_PROG_LIBTOOL'
    src/Makefile.am:50: to `configure.ac' and run `aclocal' and `autoconf' again.
    Makefile.am:24: BUILD_LINUXDOC does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
    autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1
    I'm trying to get this running for a MythTV box, running MythDora 4 (Fedora Core 6). Up to this point I've already installed git, autoconf, aclocal, and automake all using the 'yum install' command (so whatever versions have been packaged up for FC6). Am I missing something?

    You might want to install libtool, or, just in case, libtool*.
    Anyway, to avoid more of these kind of errors the best would be to do a
    Code:
    yum install groupinstall "Development Tools" "Development Libraries"
    This will install most of the stuff usually used for such things.

    Default I need help with making this work

    Please help me. I'm somewhat-new to Linux but really want to make my s-video out to work.
    I'm running Fiesty Fawn 7.04 on an hp pavilion ze4200 that has ati Radeon IGP 340M. Supposedly, the fix on this page should work, however when I go into the termnal and type
    " git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati"
    cd xf86-video-ati
    git checkout origin/randr-1.2"
    I get:
    "error: pathspec 'origin/randr-1.2' did not match any."
    And I don't know where to find this.

    Same for the second set up steps
    When I type
    "git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/app/xrandr
    cd xrandr
    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/"
    I get:
    "./autogen.sh: 9: autoreconf: not found"

    Can anyone who knows what to do/ has done this, help me out?

    For the first one, you no longer need to do the git checkout origin/randr-1.2 as the randr-1.2 branch was merged into the master branch. So just skip that step.


    For the second one, make sure you have autoreconf/autoconf installed. Also, for Ubuntu 7.04 you will need to update to Xserver 1.3 in order to use the driver.
