The next sections contain LynxOS specific notes with respect to the build process.
Currently there is no support for shared libraries in the LynxOS XFree86 port. A complete binary installation along with manual pages will require approximately 100 MBytes of disk space. To compile the system you will need at least 250 MBytes of free disk space.
Before compiling the XFree86 distribution you will have to make a few little adjustments to your system:
On other platforms than the x86 the paths for the compiler support programs are different. You may use
#!/bin/sh /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-unknown-lynxos2.5/2.7-96q1/cpp \ -traditional "$@"
to find out the correct path. Set the file mode of
# chown root /lib/cpp # chmod 755 /lib/cpp
/lib/liblynx.a. The X servers need the
smem_create()system call to map the frame buffer into their address space. The system call is in
liblynxlibrary along with other Lynx proprietary calls which (unfortunately) overlap with calls in
libc. To reduce confusion you should modify
# mv /lib/liblynx.a /lib/liblynx.a.ORG # mkdir /tmp/xx; cd /tmp/xx # ar xv /lib/liblynx.a.ORG # ar rv /lib/liblynx.a *smem* # ranlib /lib/liblynx.a
If you have the MTRR device driver installed, add a line
#define HasMTRRSupport YES
You may then issue a
to compile XFree86. After a few hours (and hopefully a successful build of the XFree86 system) you can install the software using
You must be logged in as super-user (root) when you invoke `make install'.
On LynxOS x86 2.5.0 you may encounter problems with
deeply nested subdirectories (eg core dumps, hangups). In this case
update to GNU make version 3.75 or higher.
LynxOS uses cat-able manual pages, and because a doc preparation system is definitely not a vital component of a real-time operating system you must first install groff-1.09 (or newer).
XFree86 manual pages may be installed using
The index and whatis database for the XFree86 manual pages will be created automatically. If you already have a whatis database or index file in the destination directories you should perform a sort/uniq operation to remove duplicate entries:
for i in 1 3 5 do rm -f /tmp/tmpfile sort /usr/X11R6/man/cat$i/LIST$i | uniq > /tmp/tmpfile mv /tmp/tmpfile /usr/X11R6/man/cat$i/LIST$i done sort /usr/X11R6/man/whatis | uniq > /tmp/tmpfile mv /tmp/tmpfile /usr/X11R6/man/whatis
