Subject: [gentoo-dev] Modular X: VIDEO_CARDS=ati moved to mach64, r128, radeon
Date: Mon, 17 Apr 2006 16:34:42
1 Hi all,
3 By request, the "ati" VIDEO_CARDS setting has been split into three
4 separate settings, one for each driver: Mach64/Rage XL (mach64), Rage128
5 (r128), and all Radeons (radeon).
7 This will reduce build time on mesa, x11-drm, and kdrive (once I update
8 it). It will also significantly reduce the installation size of mesa,
9 particularly if you build with debugging.
11 The obvious symptom when you don't have any valid VIDEO_CARDS set will
12 be that the xorg-x11 ebuild tries to pull in everything. Warnings or
13 die()'s about this change are useless, they will be too late because all
14 the drivers will have already been built at that point.
16 Thanks,
17 Donnie
