problem installing tux racer on slack.....please help me i love this game...


When i run ./configure it stops righ here..
checking for Mix_OpenAudio in -lSDL_mixer... no
*** SDL_mixer not found. Configuring without audio support.
checking for GL library... yes
checking for glXGetProcAddressARB... yes
checking for GLU library... yes
checking for GL/gl.h... yes
checking for GL/glx.h... yes
checking whether glx.h defines glXGetProcAddressARB... no
configure: error: Your copy of glx.h is out of date.
You can get a more recent copy from the latest Mesa distribution (http://mesa3d.sourceforge.net).

What does that means does my glx really outdated???

Does anyone ever succeed installing tux racer on slack...i there is one i really need tour help...

Thanx b4

What graphics card? I got tuxracer running properly on any distribution with 9.1 with nvidia, but I had to crate a few sym links because of version changes in libvorbisfile.

I can't remember all of the symlinks I needed, this was one that I tried
ln -s /usr/lib/libvorbisfile.so.3.0.0 /usr/lib/libvorbisfile.so.0

When I ran tuxracer it would crash out complaining about missing libraries and I just examined what was there in usr/lib/libvorb*.* -l. There were already several symlinks because of version changes and I had to work out what I needed to add.
