Added the patches from [extra]'s xorg-server. The log states the changes as following (http://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/commit/xorg-server/trunk/PKGBUILD?id=4a68d852f50e8d120f0cc25f445ec399e779d2cf):

"[..] add patches from xserver-next, add pointer barrier support"

Again, I encourage people to rather use [extra]'s xorg-server whenever they got the same version I have here - such as now. If you want to optimize your Xorg server by that 1-3% and/or modify the features then that's of course your choice.

1.10 released. Only minor differences since RC3 (http://www.spinics.net/lists/xorg/msg52105.html):
"Since RC3, we've had a few build fixes made, and one regression fixed (a crasher on sparc and other architectures)."

1.10 RC3 (1.9.99.903) released (randrproto dependency removed completely): http://www.listware.net/201102/xorg-general/89927-announce-xorg-server-1999903.html. They bumped the video driver ABI _again_ (10.0) so even the latest beta Nvidia drivers (270.29) are out of question (they support up to 9.0).

Seems like an issue with randrproto. The guy who responded to this report said it's a regression: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.freedesktop.xorg.devel/19002

E: taken from here it seems randr is a builtin extension: http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg/2008-September/038468.html - as adviced I tried to set "noRRExtension" to "TRUE" in 'xorg-server/os/utils.c' to disable randr support but it didn't work. We'll just need to wait until randrproto gets fixed.

i cannot compile it, i checked everything like own pkgbuilds and compiling from sources, i even tried compiling on fresh system via virtual machine with 1 cpu ;P, nothing, still same error:

rrcrtc.c: In function ‘RRConvertCrtcConfig’:
rrcrtc.c:1512:27: error: ‘RR_CurrentScanoutPixmap’ undeclared (first use in this function)
rrcrtc.c:1512:27: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in
make[1]: *** [rrcrtc.lo] Error 1

why oh why? :(

@mushroomboy, don't install packages straight with 'makepkg' and you'll notice how wonderfully the AUR tool you're using (whether it'd be packer, yaourt (ugh), bauerbill, clyde or whatever) fetches/installs the required (make) dependencies (xextproto-/randrproto-git) that I uploaded here in the AUR and defined in the PKGBUILD :).

I've got no idea about that "something else is wrong" part as this package worked here before and still did when I just tried it (not that it _actually_ worked (since I got Nvidia driver), but it _builds_). Maybe it's just because you use yaourt or something? -Please don't. It's buggy, old, barely maintained, still lacks some AUR functionality and, quite frankly, happens to be just a piece of crap. So (you really really should) stop using it immediately (or at least stop complaining about the problems _it_ has (there should be quite a lot of them) and not _my packages_).

In addition unless your video driver supports Xorg Server 1.10RC1 (Catalyst and Nvidia drivers, even the latest ones don't) you shouldn't even concider using this package (yet).
