Does anyone know why xorg-server is marked not for alpha?
no, but gcc42 is also marked not for alpha, but builds fine on my ds10l.
Perhaps you could comment this line and give it a try.
I agree, force the port to install. And, by the way, most alphas run with
serial terminals but not all. I am running X on my PC164 and it works
just fine but my card choices were limited and I found I needed an SVGA
card with LOTS of on board memory to do what could be done with any junky
S3 card when running Linux on Intel.
So it doesn't compile at the moment, because the BSD OS-support code
doesn't know to link against libio. If you persuade it to do so, the
build goes through. I have yet to test whether it actually works though.
