Hello, new maintainer here. I made the least possible modifications in order to have this compile again. And thanks to @goddessfreya for the patch. I think that patch will be removed soon as upstream will fix this issue at one point.

Okay. So, I don't know why you have xf86-input-elographics, xf86-input-evdev, xf86-input-keyboard, xf86-input-mouse, xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-vesa all together, but you need the -git versions of all of them, if you want to use them with this package.

Thank you Det, that fixed it.

Well, that's the packaging part. You (and I) are getting this during build().

The dmx (Distributed Multihead X), like you apparently know, is meant for multiple displays, and therefore more rarely built/fixed when broken. You can remove the " --enable-dmx" in ./configure (disabled by default):

 msg2 "Starting ./configure..."
 ./configure --prefix=/usr \
    --enable-ipv6 \
    --enable-dri \
-    --enable-dmx \
    --enable-xvfb \

Make sure you start with a clean "src/" directory (e.g. makepkg -C, --cleanbuild:

You're right, I didn't know you needed it all. Here it is.

../../dix/.libs/libdix.a(pixmap.o): In Function 'PixmapStartDirtyTracking':
pixmap.c:(.text+0x368): undefined reference to 'RRTransformCompute'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:751: recipe for target 'Xdmx' failed

I removed the Xdmx git package since I don't use DMX from the PKBUILD and it still gives me this error.
