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 builting 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).

xextproto-git randrproto-git are required

[update]

something else is wrong with the pkgbuild, I could build the src itself with ./configure and just make and everything works fine but when I try it with the pkgbuild it fails.

SYNOPSIS (to combine two long posts): I've now uploaded all that *proto stuff here in AUR (used in the build) as Git versions. I've also since fixed the non-working *proto packages that all got the same "validation" error.

Until the new xext-/ranrdproto's will be released this package uses their git versions (since the new Xorg server (1.10 RC1) requires 'randrproto>=1.4.0' and 'xextproto>=7.1.99').

I've just now also fixed this one (the server itself) as in the end it also got the same "validation" error.

E: Just remember that because of the new ABIs there is currently no working driver for the new Xorg server. I just confirmed here with the Nvidia driver (260.19.26) that even the "-ignoreABI" flag doesn't help.
