Wings and Linux

(overextrude) #1

Is it possible?

I’ve spent a good anount of time trying to get esdl (a required component) to compile, and I run into a bunch of errors. I’ve installed the libGLU from most recent version of Mesa, and SDL. And, of course, without this junk, erlang won’t boot wings. :-?

If anyone has a tip or two that could save me some time, I’d appreciate it.

I have compiled it (but I also ran into probs compiling
esdl that made me postpone using wings for several
months). I can’t remember what I did differently this
time, but maybe if you post the compiler error that
will jog my memory.

It runs into problems when it gets to esdl_glu.c:

have you tried kayosIII’s binaries?

I’m having a hard time with wings and linux; not sure what I’m doing wrong. It compiles -ESDL used to not compile; now it does and I don’t know why. but it runs this super flickery window that keeps on growing till I kill it.I have to admit I know nothing in Erlang, have not tested my erlang / esdl install on anything else.
I know what the detriments to erlang are: longer download, more involved install, slower performance, smaller base of qualified coders-marginalization. I won’t bash it though, since I don’t know the advantages. The Esdl page did mention the code was pretty raw and not garantueed to work properly. I’m pretty sure I could figure out a good install method- but I need to get through the mechanical spider first.

I have been unable to locate these (I checked kayosIII’s web site), and the only reference I’ve seen to binaries involve pre-compiled DLLs for 'doze. Do you have a URL available?

I don’t know if this will work, but I’ve uploaded
my built copy of esdl:

Thanks a bunch, Chris. I’ll download it and give it a try.

Wow, thanks Hos. That solved my problem too (if you remember?) :smiley:
