1. Prerequirement.
Please install makedepend and libudev-devel firstly.
Glamor need patch glew-1.5.8, here is the patch:

As xserver's glx extension code has conflicts with glew's glx related
initialization, we have to disable it in glew currently. Please apply the
above patch to glew and then build the glew as follow which will
workaround the problem.
glew-1.5.8# NO_GLX=1 make
2. Build xserver-glamor.
Then do the following steps one by one.
2.1. get latest glamor at github.
2.2 Setup xorg development environment, use xserver-glamor to
replace the official xserver.
Here is the link of how to setup xorg development environment:
For most of the packages, we prefer latest git version. Especially
for the mesa package.
When build mesa, use the following parameters: (assume you want to
install the experimental xorg to /opt/gfx-test)
#mesa/./ --prefix=/opt/gfx-test --with-egl-platforms=drm --disable-gallium --disable-gallium-egl
build xserver-glamor as below:
#xserver-glamor/./ --disable-glx --enable-kdrive --enable-xephyr
Once you finish all the building process, you can have a try as below:
xserver-glamor#startx -- `pwd`/hw/xfree86/Xorg If you can find the
following messages on the console, then everything should work correctly.
Mesa: Initializing x86-64 optimizations
3. Restrictions:
Currently, glamor doesn't support glx extension, will be fixed in the future.
Glamor setup done.
