configure: error: Could not find -lSDL_mixer


Hey
Well I took the plunge and installed Slackware 9.0 and it rocks. Everything is going swimmingly. But I have tried to install a game called Powermanga and when I do ./configure i get this and it fails

checking for sdl-config... /usr/bin/sdl-config
checking for SDL - version >= 0.11.0... yes
checking for Mix_GetChunk in -lSDL_mixer... no
configure: error: Could not find -lSDL_mixer

it looks like an SDL_mixer error, but iv'e installed the .tgz package for it from linuxpackages.net. So SDL is present as far as I know.

Any ideas?

thanks

Try a
locate SDL_mixer

If it's not there, look whether it's
meant to be in the tgz... if not, go
and get SDL source and tackle it
from there ;)

Cheers,
Tink

running "ldconfig" should be enough. You only have to reboot if you do kernel changes.

try compiling from source.

ldconfig, thats the one. Couldn't remember that command for the life of me. Cheers

I'm compiling from source now. The fun
