Flightgear - missing library


I have just installed the Slackware packages for Flightgear. fgrun opens the configuration window and all looks very promising. Having set all the options ready for action I click on run and an error message appears telling me that libopenal.so.0 is missing. In the FAQ it does mention the path etc. However, having run #updatedb and then #locate libopenal.so.0 I find that the library is not installed on my system. I am not sure whether this is supposed to a part of the package or a dependancy requirement that I am supposed to source myself? Any ideas?

Thanks.

Openal is a common library, this site seems to have what you need

Great. Thanks. I had actually been there to download the main packages and in my excitement overlooked the 'essential' pacakage. Doh.

Smile X-Plane

If you are really into FlightSims, checkout X-Plane which also runs on Linux

www.x-plane.com

You *will NOT* be disappointed.

Thanks. I'll take a look.

I am not into flight sims as such but am a frustrated pilot. Money ran out and I haven't flown for 3 years My old PC and graphics card simply wasn't up to it. Now that I have a decent PC I may as well fly from home

Hi Alan

Yes I find it alot of fun flying in my armchair minus the heavy cost. Anyway, hope you like X-Plane, there is a forum you can visit at www.xplane.org and take a look at the screenshot forum.

X-Plane is not perfect by any means, but if your into VFR and small planes, its very real. (You can also fly the heavies no doubt)

Cheers
Shelton.
