linking problem with glut
Mon Jun 19 07:37:00 GMT 2000
I worked over the weekend I tried compiling xwin with GLX extension.
There seems to be some problems. 1) GLX extension refuses to load.
2) After hacking I got GLX extensiuon loaded, there seems to be
conflicts between DirectX and OpenGL/GLX and server crashed
on displaying OGL samples.
Mean while you could try linking your application to old Mesa
and Glut libraries from:
I may not get enough time for almost 2 weeks to fix the GLX
extension problem in xwin server.
