I'll take a stab in the dark and say you need the pam development files. Didn't say which distro but for ubuntu/debian thats package "libpam0g-dev" and for redhat/fedora thats "pam-devel"

Thanks. I am on debian\kubuntu.

I apt-got the package, and I'm compiling at the moment.

I'll tell you if it works.

text-mode.c:39:21: error: ncurses.h: No such file or directory

This type of error during compile ("error: ncurses.h: No such file or directory") usually means you have a needed development package missing (in this case ncurses).

You can help yourself often when this error occurs, by using "apt-cache search" (I note you're using a Debian based distro).

eg. do something like

apt-cache search ncurses | grep dev

or for your previous problem

apt-cache search pam | grep dev

At least you can get some idea of what packages you might need to install by doing this.

I've got Xorg from CVS installed on Breezy, but I find it a lot slower than 6.8.

Without xcompmgr running, dragging windows over the desktop causes the system to lock for several seconds while it redraws at a snail's pace. Also sub pixel font rendering is slow enough to make gedit unusable for me.

Anyway thanks for the guide Rezza, I'm going to go looking for patches now ...
