If you do xdpyinfo in a console, it will tell you the extensions you have installed, e.g.
- Code: Select all
number of extensions: 31
You will notice that the SuSE 9.2 on my machine comes with SHAPE.
Having just tried it out, I find it will compile on my system. However, I did install the xorg update from here:
ftp://ftp.mirrorservice.org/sites/ftp.s ... 386/suse92
so that might be why it works for me. In any event, as with any compiling you will need to make sure you have the necessary devel files installed, xorg-x11-devel in the case of the above upgrade.
I would advise that you check for SHAPE with xdpyinfo first and if it is there, then make sure you have your X servers devel files installed and try compiling then rather than going straight for the upgrade, but it's up to you.
