Fedora Rawhide that targets Fedora 12 uses snapshot of X.Org that uses new Video Driver API. This patch was needed to get it work with it:

(just in case it's also needed for tiny changes like this: I release it under MIT license)

Thanks, but could you please use the developer's mailinglist to post patches in the future? Here they might be missed.

Replying to sandervl73:

Sure. Does it allow non-subscriber posting? I also submitted some more patches yesterday (#4732, #4733, #4734), so I'm wondering if you noticed them, or I should re-post them to the list (since you suggest that there's a chance they'll be overlooked here)?

We saw the other reports, thank you! To submit patches to the vbox-dev mailing list you have to subscribe indeed (SPAM protection).

Patch applied, it should be visible in the OSE repository by tomorrow. I actually removed the calls to the symbol reference functions altogether, as they have been (I discovered) no-ops in the X server code since at least server version 1.3, possibly longer. I'd also like to mention that the patches are really appreciated. It's nice when people packaging send their changes back upstream!
