Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 140301
sdl-config --libs outputs insufficient parameters
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:55 EST
Description of problem:
I am using SDL 1.2.0 on FedoraCore 2 and had problems compiling QEMU
emulator with SDL. It didn't recognize that SDL was installed.
I tracked the problem down to a test where it tried to compile a test
program with SDL using output from 'sdl-config --libs'.
The program didn't compile because it didn't link with X11 and Xext
libs (and libSDL-1.2.so.0 requires them).
When I changed
echo $libdirs -lSDL -lpthread
echo $libdirs -lSDL -lpthread -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 -lXext
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get qemu-0.6.1 from
2. Run ./configure
SDL support: no
WARNING: cannot compile statically with SDL - qemu-fast won't have a
SDL support: yes
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing as WONTFIX, because FC-2 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project.
