I've just gone through the process of getting my DXR3 card working
with Freevo, and there are a couple of things that seem to be
incorrect on the Wiki page.
Specifically, the paths to the SDL patches seem to have changed --
I don't see the patches at all in the runtime package, and they're
in contrib/rpm in the 1.4.1 source tarball now.
Also, there's no gcc3 patch that I can see, and one does not seem
to be needed any longer.
Finally, for me at least the first run of autogen.sh for SDL spat
out lots of errors and didn't correctly create the Makefiles. I
almost gave up at that point (C I'm fine with, but autoconf is
not something I've spent any time working with beyond running
./configure), but on a whim I ran it again and then it worked --
nothing changed that I can see.
Anyway. I'm not sure what the etiquette is with respect to modifying
Wiki pages, and I'm also not sure if my experience (particularly
with the patch paths) is Gentoo-specific or if it applies regardless
of distro. Advice on both counts?
