    No. Why would you want it? Here's the script diff though (I'm assuming this is want you really want).

      Well the install went well.
      Everything was built except some input drivers and video-glide.
      But as you said i dont need that.

      Problem now is that I tried to install the fglrx driver on the new Xorg after symlinking and all that.
      installer said everything ok.

      But there were no Libfglrx files inside and no aticonfig
      it only copied a dri module in X11R7.3/modules/dri

      but modules are supposed to be in xorg/modules I suppose.
      In the end expectedly the fglrx module did not load and X could not start.
      any ideas.

        I can't know for sure, as I don't know how your system is set up. In my experience, the ati installer puts its files in /usr/lib/{dri,xorg} which are symlinks to /usr/X11/lib/{modules/dri,xorg} respectively. You should check that those links are not broken, or the installer will just abandon.

        On my system, only libfglrxdrm.so and fglrx_drv.so are in xorg/modules/{linux,drivers}.

            That's because they come from different packages. xterm from xterm (obviously) and glxinfo&gears from MesaDemos.

            I considered for a moment pasting ls -R somewhere, but it's 5000 something lines. Here's ls /usr/X11/bin though:

            Code:
            # ls /usr/X11R7.3_old/bin/

            If you followed the instructions, and only some drivers failed, then you *have* everything.

                That's because you didn't compile Xdmx. You most likely do not need it (it provides means to use multi-displays, with each display connected to a different computer).

                I've updated my previous post to reflect the contents of a vanilla X11R7.3 build.
