    I first received an error involving autoreconf. Turns out it was not installed on my system. I installed the package and now the above output is where I am at now.
    I also had the same error, which I resolved by installing aclocal and/or automake (don't recall specifically which).

    Do you have xorg-x11-server-sdk?

    Configure error

    I have a strange configure error:
    Code:
    checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... (cached) yes
    checking whether gcc accepts -g... (cached) yes
    checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... (cached) none needed
    checking dependency style of gcc... (cached) gcc3
    ./configure: line 20150: syntax error near unexpected token `XINERAMA,'
    ./configure: line 20150: `XORG_DRIVER_CHECK_EXT(XINERAMA, xineramaproto)'
    And honestly, I have no idea where that comes from.

    My machine is a standard Fedora 7 which is up2date so the setup is comparable to the one used in the review/howto. And I have almost all xorg-x11 packages installed, the only ones missing are some drv*devel packages for drivers I do not use.

    Does anyone has any idea?

    Hi,

    I've manage to patch, compile and install the driver. My xorg.conf now shows

    (II) RADEON(0): Port0:
    Monitor -- AUTO
    Connector -- VGA
    DAC Type -- Primary
    TMDS Type -- None
    DDC Type -- VGA_DDC
    (II) RADEON(0): Port1:
    Monitor -- AUTO
    Connector -- DVI-I
    DAC Type -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
    TMDS Type -- Internal
    DDC Type -- DVI_DDC
    (II) RADEON(0): Port2:
    Monitor -- AUTO
    Connector -- STV
    DAC Type -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
    TMDS Type -- None
    DDC Type -- NONE

    But I don't know how to setup my xorg.conf. Anyone knows how or could show me a working xorg.conf with vga and tv out working?

    Code:
    % ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/
    Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/autoreconf line 174.
    Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/bin/autoreconf line 174.
    autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
    autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext

    Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 288.
    autoreconf: failed to run aclocal: No such file or directory
    I first received an error involving autoreconf. Turns out it was not installed on my system. I installed the package and now the above output is where I am at now.

    Thanks to you guys I have the TV-out working, but now there's another problem. The colors on the TV appear as if their brightness has been inverted. For example, bright orange becomes dark orange and dark blue becomes light blue.

    This is my LCD monitor and this is my tv screen. Any ideas?

    According to gentoo's portage this particular
    header belongs to the 'xorg-server' package,
    assuming your distro is already using >= X 7.0

    Yoshi's right. To find out what's missing, use your distributions package system. For instance, on debian go to http://packages.debian.org/ and at the bottom, search for the missing file - xf86Crtc.h. It tells you that the file exists in the xserver-xorg-dev package.
    Now, this is debian. I don't know if this works for you.

    maybe xorg-server development files would do the trick.
