Details

Following https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-input-keyboard/merge_requests/1
we removed xf86-input-keyboard. Let's try to remove more unused and obsolete packages from the Arch repos:

https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-general/2019-December/047247.html

Some more packages were suggested to be dropped:

- xf86miscproto yes, in xorgproto package

- libxxf86misc yes - light-locker (community)
# copied out of xorgproto 2018.4
Source1: xf86misc.h
Source2: xf86mscstr.h
sed -i s/xf86miscproto// configure.ac
mkdir -p src/X11/extensions/
cp %{SOURCE1} %{SOURCE2} src/X11/extensions/

(- libxevie nope)
- xf86dgaproto yes, in xorgproto package

- libxxf86dga yes - replaced by drm code
packages that still depend on it require rebuilds:
(allegro,allegro4,mplayer,nexuiz,xawtv,xonotic,xorg-xdpyinfo,mplayer (make) )

- libxkbui yes - dead, nothing depends on it

- libdmx
xorg-server-xdmx, xserver-server package with --enable-dmx

- xf86-input-mouse - use f86-input-libinput or f86-input-evdev

- xorgproto

xorgproto - cleanup done - 2019.2-2
- packages have been rebuilt that were having *proto runtime (wrong) dependencies now with now makedepends on xorgproto

packages removed:
- xf86-input-mouse
- libxkbui
- libdmx,xorg-server-xdmx - Xorg-server rebuilt without Xdmx support

Done!
Comment by Andreas Radke (AndyRTR) - Thursday, 19 December 2019, 19:27 GMT
light-locker has been rebuilt dropping dependency on libxxf86misc so libxxf86misc can be removed when light-locker proved to be working.

nexuiz fixable? move back to AUR? mail to the maintainer sent.

mplayer, xawtv, xorg-xdpyinfo - done
allegro,allegro4,xonotic - don

Is this known already?

Comment by Frederic Bezies (fredbezies) - Friday, 20 December 2019, 08:56 GMT
In a way yes. But it broke installing Xorg on a brand new archlinux related to xorg-xdpyinfo which needs a rebuild. See ttps://bugs.archlinux.org/task/64904
Comment by Tim Ruffing (realorrandom) - Friday, 20 December 2019, 21:57 GMT
I needed to remove also libxxf86misc, in addition to what's suggested in https://www.archlinux.org/news/xorg-cleanup-requires-manual-intervention/

The cleanup breaks the compilation of DWM, and probably any other packages using X11 libraries.

In file included from drw.c:5:
/usr/include/X11/Xlib.h:44:10: fatal error: X11/X.h: No such file or directory
44 | #include <X11/X.h>
| ^~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.

Is there a way to fix that?
Comment by Lone_Wolf (Lone_Wolf) - Saturday, 21 December 2019, 11:23 GMT
Add xorgproto to the makedepends of the aur dwm PKGBUILD and try again.
If that solves it , ask the dwm maintainer to add it also and upload a new version .

This seems to have broken dmenu for me. Here is a gdb output of where it fails:

Performed instructions provided in the update news page, and still got hit with the following:

:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'xproto' required by libxfont
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'fontsproto' required by libxfont
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'xf86miscproto' required by libxxf86misc
Comment by Lone_Wolf (Lone_Wolf) - Saturday, 21 December 2019, 13:02 GMT
Cysioland,
remove libxxf86misc .
libxfont was removed from repos in november 2017, https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/commit/?id=6e7af1fcc644936c197ab4c529f733a351e4c2ad .
I suggest you run pacman -Qm & pacman -Qdt to see if you have other obsolete stuff present.
If you need help with that, post in forum .

IGNORE this post please, solved by removing lib32-libxi.

Thank you,

I've readded libx11 depending on xorgproto to satisfy its pkgconfig file and allow to keep building against it easily without a huge amount packages to add the proto headers to build dependency.

libxxf86dga has been removed.

It seems to be hard to read this report from the beginning. I've added "libxxf86misc" to the news section entry.
