Can not build on the latest system. harfbuzz seems to be out of sync.

The latest update (to 1.19) breaks dependencies, and manual intervention is required:

Step 1: Remove xorg-server-bug865 and all packages depending on it. In my case:
pacman -R xorg-server-bug865 hsetroot nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils nvidia nvidia-ck-ivybridge

Step 2: Upgrade all packages that xorg-server depends on:
pacman -Syu

Step 3: Reinstall xorg-server and all packages depending on it. In my case:
pacman -S xorg-server hsetroot nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils nvidia nvidia-ck-ivybridge

Step 4: At this point, you use upstream xorg-server. Install the xorg-server-bug865 package from AUR as you usually do.

Since 2004 it still even ain't in the mainstream

Just started rebuilding xorg-server myself, but accidentally stumbled upon this package.
So glad that did not have to go through the hassle.
Thanks, kyak.

This patch ought to be merged into the Extra btw, since freedesktop people refuse to fix their own fumble.

This package should be official!

stylemistake commented on 2016-05-29 21:37

This patch should belong to the official PKGBUILD, imo.

kyak commented on 2016-04-08 12:39

Really? How is that?

hussam commented on 2016-04-08 12:17

It is still one of the main reasons people accidentally break ABIs.

kyak commented on 2016-04-06 16:13

Tell it to at least 16 people who use this package (judging by the number of votes). Some of them probably us it on several machines.

But anyway, you seem to have a lot of spare time to comment on useless packages and patch PKGBUILDs yourself.

hussam commented on 2016-04-06 15:51

Why make a whole new package for just one patch? Just edit the official PKGBUILD, add the patch and recompile.
