Re: [linrad] PSE help with SuSE 8.2 and svgalib

Hi Joop!

I am not a Linux expert and am replying only because no other replies have appeared
here.  I have never used Suse.

The eror you describe indicates that the compiler couldn't find vgagl libraries, I

I wonder if somehow the manual linking that must be done (see Leif's page 
http://www.antennspecialisten.com/~sm5bsz/linuxdsp/install/svgainst.htm again) didn't
occur correctly.  A typo here would be fatal ;)

The runtime libraries are placed at /usr/local/lib but they are needed at /usr/lib.
Symbolic links solve the problem. 
Type:ln -s /usr/local/lib/libvga.so.1.4.3 /usr/lib/libvga.so.1 
Type:ln -s /usr/local/lib/libvgagl.so.1.4.3 /usr/lib/libvgagl.so.1 The "proper"
solution is of course to change Makefile.cfg to place the library files at the right
place automatically, but keeping as many files as possible untouched is a good way of
avoiding problems.... 

is the text in question on this page.

See also:

What happens when, after you type 'updatedb', you type 'locate vgagl' ?

I get:

[root@linux root]# locate vgagl

Of course, if you typed the links wrong, then this could look ok but things still
wouldn't work.

Finally, when you think things have compiled OK, if Linrad still doesn't want to work
you might try some of the svgalib demos, in the svgalib directory.  Here I am using
svgalib-1.9.17 and so these are at .../svgalib-1.9.17/demos.

I hope that this message is of some help, and that you get some more replies from
folks who really DO know Linux.

PS getting as far as you have gotten in 1 day is impressive!
