Re: [linrad] Linrad and Mandrake 9.2

I have tried various options and got the libraries libvgagl.so.1 and libvga.so.1 into /usr/lib/ by copying them directly. I gather this is not sufficient, however, and I cant get the full package to compile.
When I rpm linrad, it says it doesnt see these files
Oh well - guess I will go and spend my money.

svgalib doesnt seem to be a package included in the Mandrake 9.2 distro. I got mine from one of the Linux magazines at the newsagent. It seems Mandrake is starting to get away a bit fom the Open Source ethos towards a commercial model - how is supporting a commercial entity suporting the Linux community?

I would be happy to consider payment for an rpm if it is supporting the Linux community. Is Mandrakesoft a commercial entity?

They are a commercial entity, and supporting them is definitely supporting Linux community.
