xvfb-run 1.4.2 packaging

Reported by: howarth.at.macports@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.3.3
Keywords: Cc: jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia)
Port: xvfb-run

Description

The attached Portfile, xorg-server_1.4.2-10.lenny4.debian-only-changes.diff and xvfb-run.diff patches produce a xvfb-run package which installs the debian xvfb-run script and manpage for automating the execution of programs on the Xvfb server during packaging (in order to avoid errors about a missing X11 display). This Portfile still needs a depends_run added for the missing xvfb subport of xorg-server.

Note that the original servers for both of these patches no longer exist so we include them locally in the files directory of the package.

I'd rather not do this. Xvfb was deprecated around a decade ago in favor of Xfake, which itself was deprecated years ago in favor of the Xorg DDX's use of the dummy driver.

You should be able to just use xinit with the dummy driver. Both are installed with the XQuartz package but don't have ports in MacPorts yet. I suggest you give that a try instead of using xvfb-run.
