When replying please only reply to freebsd-x11@, freebsd-ports@ is only
used to get this a bigger audience.
This is a weird call for testers.
So in our quest for push Xorg on FreeBSD further, we are looking for
people to test cairo 1.12 primarily with the old Xorg stack. We know
that the graphics with the 2.7.1 intel driver are horribly broken (lots
of artifacts) so people don't need to test that, but what is the state
of the other xorg video drivers with cairo 1.12? If problems arise after
the update, a screenshot and details about installed ports and your
hardware should be enough.
While this CFT is focused on the non-WITH_NEW_XORG that should not stop
people that are using WITH_NEW_XORG from trying it out. The Intel/Radeon
KMS drivers shouldn't have any problem with cairo 1.12.
To apply the patch do the following:
Download the patch from .
patch -p0 < /path/to/cairo-1.12.16.diff
We are also interested if people are still using 8.x for there desktop.
Is there a specific reason for not updating to 9.x or 10.x?
