I’ve built a new computer and loaded the latest Nvidia driver from the Nvidia.com site(card is a Gainward GF FX5600XT), the Blender source is from the blender.org site and is the non-cvs version. My OS is Mandrake 9.2.
My problem is this, on compiling the software (usual ./configure, make, su, make install) the libtool cannot find the libGL.la file, this i know is due to the NVidia driver moving “/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.la” to “/usr/lib/libGL.la” and libtool can therefore not find it,
can anyone please tell me how to sort this out?
i’ve tried editing the /lib/libGL.la file adding “#Generated by ltmain.sh - GNU libtool 1.4.3 (1.922.2.110 2002/10/23 01:39:54)” and the “(for use by libtool)” is already included in the line “#Generated by nvidia-installer: 106”,
i’ve also tried reinstalling the “libMesa-devel” RPM to no avail.
Any suggestions/reading matter is greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance, J
