XRoar and GtkGLExt problems on linux

Postby robcfg » Mon Aug 20, 2012 10:28 am

Hi!

I just took an old Pentium3 Dell laptop and installed Linux Mint 9. Then I downloaded all the libs required to compiled XRoar and launched the configure script.

Apt-get tells me that zlib and gtkglext are installed and up-to-date, but the configure script doesn't detect them.

I managed to compile and run it (pretty decent speed ;) ), but I don't have the menu as it doesn't recognize GtkGLExt.

Has anyone had the same problem?

Do you have the -dev packages installed?

In Debian you'd need libgtkglext1-dev and libgtk2.0-dev.

I'm pretty sure I did, but I'll look at it again tonight.

Thnx!

The only other things that comes to mind is "pkg-config" itself - the configure script needs that for a bunch of stuff, but it would pick up SDL without it (testing for "sdl-config" instead).

Interesting to know what sort of OpenGL hardware acceleration you might have in your P3 laptop! ;)

Obviously, my fault... :mrgreen:

I tried to compile GtkGLExt, and then tried to apt-get it. Solution was easy though, I just made a "make uninstall" first and then reinstalled it via apt-get.

Now works like a charm and with the menu, which I find it's a huge plus.

Regarding the graphics chip, it's a Intel 830M. Not the brightest one, but still enough for running the Linux Mint 9 Gnome desktop and XRoar at nice speed.

Thank you very much for your help!
