Xorg 1.5.3 is now officially stable on 4 of the major arches : amd64, ppc, ppc64 and x86. Props to for ppc/ppc64 for getting there first 😉
With this now done, I’ll slowly start cleaning up old ebuilds. X in Gentoo deserves not to be a big mess anymore.
What bothers me most is that alpha still doesn’t have xorg-server 1.5 keyworded at all. PCI on alpha is apparently more complicated than on other arches and they’re still waiting for proper libpciaccess support.
It’s a shame as I really wanted to get rid of 1.4.2 from portage, as it probably was one of the worst release in recent X history (management-wise).
Other than that, I’ll be AFK for about 2 weeks starting from next Saturday, so don’t expect much from me during this period.
