Re: [ITP] OpenSceneGraph-2.8.1-1

I'm not sure why you believe so. The OpenGL API is designed to be implementation-agnostic, and Mesa (which provides OpenGL for Cygwin/X) generally suffices, although without the performance benefit of hardware acceleration.

I was able to build OpenSceneGraph and run a number of examples, so it would seem to work as is, with the following caveats:

1) OSG can take advantage of several additional dependencies which are not in the distro. Some of these are available in Ports, and a few not. AFAICS these are all optional, so it shouldn't be a show-stopper.

2) The stock cmake treats Cygwin as both WIN32 and UNIX, which besides being contradictory, is generally incorrect. You won't be able to build OSG for X11 with the stock cmake because of that. I do have patches for cmake which fix that (since KDE4 has the same problem); I really should work with the cmake maintainer on that.

Here are the .cygport and patch I used to try this out; all the patch does is remove the unnecessary "cygwin_" prefix from plugins.

Hope this helps,

Yaakov Cygwin/X
