Compiling GLUT binding for Lua from source on ubuntu


I always have bad luck when compiling from source.

This time though, it seems my issue is more easily solveable.

I'm compiling Doris from source, which is a GLUT binding for Lua.

The only error message make is giving me is:

ar: ../lib/liblua.a: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [../lib/liblua.a] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/giusi/Desktop/doris/src/lua/src'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/giusi/Desktop/doris/src/lua'
make: *** [lua] Error 2


it just seems like make can't find liblua.a. I have Lua and all the necessary dependencies installed. I just can't figure out what liblua.a is. Is it usually in another system folder? I tried using a search utility to find it, and I can't locate it on my system.

does anyone know what it is??

liblua50-dev :
liblua.a is called liblua50.a, so you may either edit you makefile
or do this: 'ln -s liblua50.a liblua.a'
