Description Paul Osmialowski 2003-05-30 12:54:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Examples that are installed form rpm to /usr/share/doc/gtkglarea-1.2.2/examples
have wrapper shell scripts that are trying to find libraries in ../gtkgl/.libs
directory that don't exist. Inside of gtkglarea_demo.c file there's a hint how
to compile examples manually:
 * Compile command:
 * gcc gtkglarea_demo.c `gtk-config --libs --cflags` -lMesaGL -lMesaGLU -lgtkgl
It won't work on RH9, since MesaGL and MesaGLU libraries are named GL and GLU,
so to work fine it should be changed to:
gcc gtkglarea_demo.c `gtk-config --libs --cflags` -lGL -lGLU -lgtkgl
or symbolic links should be provided by both Mesa rpms.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install gtkglares
2. go to /usr/share/doc/gtkglarea-1.2.2/examples
3. try to run any of shell scripts presented there

Actual Results:  [root@oyster example]# ./zktor
gcc: zktor.o: File not found
gcc: ../gtkgl/.libs/libgtkgl.so: File not found

Red Hat Linux 9 is no longer maintained by Red Hat.  Gtkglarea is no
longer included in current releases, either.

Maybe the Fedora Legacy project is still interested in supporting this
