Glut 3.7


Hi,

I am new to Linux and Glut, and am trying to install glut-3.7 on my home PC. I've been having problems trying to install it on the computer and wondered if anybody could give me some help.

After extracting the tar files, and following the first step of the instructions, when I attempt to use the './mkmkfiles.imake' command, I get a load of errors:

This is the end of the error:

START ERRORS-----

if ( -x /usr/openwin/bin/xmkmf ) then


xmkmf
xmkmf: Command not found.
endif
endif
endif
make Makefiles
make: *** No rule to make target `Makefiles'. Stop.





make depend
make: *** No rule to make target `depend'. Stop.

END ERRORS-----


I have found a number of places, which describe slightly different ways to install the program, but am having no success. I have followed the instructions exactly as described for installation under Linux.

Like I said I am a beginner to Linux and I would be much obliged if you could help me at all.



Thanks,

Mike

Check to see if XFree86-devel is installed, it contains xmkmf.
If you tell me what distro you're using I can give you more information on how to install it or what to do if you do have it installed.

Glut Problem

Hi,

I have Red Hat 9 (Shrike) installed and I dont think XFree86 is installed, unless it is done by default? Where do I get it from / how do I install it?




Mike.

In almost every case it's installed by default, unless you're not using any display managers (such as KDE or Gnome). Just to be sure type "gurpmi XFree86-devel" in a console. I don't have a lot of experience in Redhat, so if that doesn't work I suggest using some sort of package manager to see if it's installed or not.

I tried that command and it said 'command not found'

Should I download and install XFree86?

OK, I think I have managed to install Glut, but now it says "Permission Denied" when I try to run a compiled C program from the shell and the error "Nautilius does not have a viewer capable to display this file" in my directory.

Does anybody know what program I require?

there is no command xfree86. unfortunately, i don't use version 9 so i don't know how you'd go about finding out the rpm version of Xfree used in your system. rh9 got rid of kpackage. i wonder if you have an add/remove kind of think in gnome or something in rh9.0. if you do find out the numbers for XFree86 in the package name. then google using the XFree86-devel-X.XX.XXX.rpm where X.XX.XXX is the numbers you got from your package manager. download and install it. for example my version of xfree and googling for the devel packages for my version, i'd use

xfree86-devel-4.2.1-13.73.3

boom! first hit.

edit: or you can search using xfree on rhn and download it directly from redhat network's site.
