libGL.so Problem


hey all,

I was trying to install apollo, and well...uhm...it didn't work..I got as far as it asking me for a certain libGL.so, that didn't exist.
The Error:
* g++: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so: No such file or directory

well ok, so i looked into that dir. And sure enough that file was there. But it was a Shortcut pointing to another file: libGL.so.1.2...
So i looked for that and found in /usr/lib. But why the heck doesn't it see the file?!

could someone plz help me here?

thanks already

cyall

Try recreating the symlink, if you're sure you know which the libGL.so symlink should point to:
Code:
ln -s /path/to/libgl.1.2 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so
.

Alternatively try rerunning whatever installation system you used for your graphics drivers.
