What do I do to install glest successfully? Thanks.

All of the dependencies are listed in the README for glest. I have successfully compiled and installed glest on my Slackware 13.0 (32bit) system.

However, I have run into a situation where I couldn't compile podofo with lua installed. I looked at the slackbuild in the 13.0 repo and it doesn't look like it properly links to the appropriate libraries.

For example, when I compile podofo with lua from the 13.0 repo I get an error message similar to:
Code:

The slackbuild for lua in 13.0 repo seems broken. Lua doesn't properly link to -ldl, -lreadline, -lhistory and -lncurses. I can only confirm -ldl with the 13.0 lua script because of the above error.

My suggestion is to use the slackbuild script for lua from the 12.1 or 12.2 repo. 12.1/12.2 slackbuilds properly links to the appropriate libraries and podofo compiles successfully against the 12.1/12.2 lua slackbuild. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your advice.

Will uninstall lua & compile using lua slackbuild 12.2. That should get glest working.

See latest update :-)

development/lua: Fixed linkage of -ldl, -lreadline, -lhistory and -lncurses
  in the shared library.  Thanks to pokipoki08 on LQ for the initial report
  and to Larry Hajali for giving me enough information to fix it.  --rworkman

rworkman: Thanks for the quick update.

As a quick update, it looks like the glest slackbuild still won't compile correctly even with the corrected lua slackbuild. When I built glest it was against my own personal version, which has a few modifications since I originally uploaded it to slackbuilds.org. It apparently won't build against gcc-4.3.

Edit: Removed patch. Glest now compiles on Slackware 13.0 at slackbuilds.org
