xmkmf missing

Post by otto » Wed Mar 02, 2005 4:50 pm

Hello,
I wanted to install an touchscreen on gentoox but by compiling of the driver I got the error that there ist the programm xmkmf missing to go on.
But after searching on the package database of gentoo I didn´t find the package.
It should be in the Xfree86 Develop package but this is also not available for gentoo or am I too stupid to find it?
please help me.

And I googled "xmkmf", it looks like it's a command to make a file.

And according to THIS:

some guy did:

emerge -K xfree

And now it was all peachy.
Try that, I guess.

Thanks for your help but there´s no package called xfree so I don´t know what this guy emerge but not xfree or they delete this package from the database.
