./configure and gl.h problems
i'm trying to compile a game (xracer) and it keeps stopping
with the message
checking for glNewList in -lGL... no
checking for glNewList in -lMesaGL... no
configure: error: GL library was not found
so i did ./configure --help
and it said that i needed to add
so i did locate gl.h and locate GL
and it came back with
so i added this to the =DIR
same error message
i played around a little with different paths, to all the different locations returned by locate
all the same
can anyone tell me..
a) can i pass 2 locations to configure eg: --with-gl-libs=/blah/GL /blah/libgl
b) is this a version mismatch ?
c) what am i doing wrong?
to give you some perspective
this is the first time i've had to pass options to configure
i do not know programming or whatever
my previous method has been "if it doesn't configure without options? leave it alone"
but enough running away
