bug#39402: set-xorg-configuration pulls in unsupported packages on target architecture
Mon, 03 Feb 2020 01:22:16 +0000
I've found that the `set-xorg-configuration` service ends up pulling in
`xf86-video-intel` as a dependency. But `xf86-video-intel` fails to build, with:
checking whether to include UXA support... no
checking whether to include SNA support... auto
checking for xvmc dri2proto x11 x11-xcb xcb-dri2 xcb-aux libdrm_intel... no
checking whether to include XvMC support... no
checking which acceleration method to use by default... configure: error: UXA
requested as default, but is not enabled
"--with-default-accel=uxa" failed with status 1
What's more, the package definition for xf86-video-intel contains this:
;; This driver is only supported on Intel systems.
(filter (lambda (system) (or (string-prefix? "i686-" system)
(string-prefix? "x86_64-" system)))
So it seems like it's a bug that it currently gets included on non i686 and
Even if I supply a modules field in set-xorg-configuration where I exclude
`xf86-video-intel`, guix still tries to build it.
The only reference to `xf86-video-intel` is its inclusion in
%default-xorg-modules -- would making the contents of that list target-aware be
a potential fix?
