I am now able to link my glut-based apps, thanks.
Remark: there is already a GL directory in /usr/X11R6/include (from
xfree-4.0-devel.tar.bz2); should the one in sgi-opengl.tar.bz2 replace it ?
When un-taring sgi-opengl.tar, it refuses to overwrite files in
/usr/X11R6/include (permission denied). I renamed /usr/X11R6/include/GL
/usr/X11R6/include/oldGL to un-tar succesfully; is that right ? There were
3 extra files in /usr/X11R6/include/GL from xfree-4.0-devel.tar.bz2:
glxint.h glxmd.hg and glxproto.h .
I tried to run my glut examples on Xwin; I got an error message saying that
the OpenGL GLX extension was not supported by my display. I stopped Xwin,
edited startxwin.bat to add -x GLX at the end of the Xwin line and rerun
startxwin.bat; xwin crashed. Was is the status of GLX support in XWin ?
BTW, I think that startxwin.bat should be updated to add
C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin or something like it instead of \usr\bin\X11 which
doesn't exists anymore.
Another bug: I switched from Xwin to the Windows desktop using Alt-Tab;
when I returned to Xwin, the keyboard was no longer working properly;
either it was adding 128 to the ASCII value of what I was typing or it
didn't type anything.
One last little thing. Should we worry about these messages in the Xwin CMD
scheduling timer: Invalid argument
_XSERVTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root
I am using Windows 2000.
