https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257417 Bug ID: 257417 Summary: xorg-server package: libxaa.so is missing, breaking support for older video hardware Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Many People Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: ports-bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org For some reason, the libxaa.so library is missing in the xorg-server package. This breaks some older video card drivers. The s3 driver is an example. It does not support the AccelMethod option, instead seems to be hard-coded to use the XAA method. The libxaa.so driver must have been removed from the xorg-server package some time since 2014, as you can see in this post: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=195810#c3 Could the libxaa.so driver please be put back into the xorg-server package? -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
