Posted by Trinexx on Sep. 28 2006,00:54I installed Enrapture today, and tried to launch it from the myDSL extension menu, but it didnt work, so I tried it from the command line, and it tells me that it couldnt find libGLU.so.1.
Any ideas on where to get this/install it?
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Sep. 28 2006,04:39You'll need to use one of the XFree86.* extensions
Posted by Trinexx on Oct. 02 2006,03:24Christ, I was afraid of that -_-
Oh well, I can do without :/
Posted by WDef on Oct. 07 2006,09:47If all it wants is that one library, you can unpack the XFree86 extension and just take that one library. You don't need to install the whole thing.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Oct. 08 2006,05:29I don't think so... afaik libGLU is for opengl
Posted by WDef on Oct. 08 2006,10:40No you were right the first time. It's included in XFree86 dsl and it's part of opengl.
When I made ProzGui.dsl I did exactly this - I unpacked libGLU.so.1.3 and libGL.so.1.2 (I think it was both) and their soname symlinks from the Xfree86 extension and put these in ProzGui.dsl.

Posted by Trinexx on Oct. 08 2006,18:12hohum, update!
I screwed around for a bit, and finally decided I was going to install XFree86, since alot of extensions seem to depend on it. HAHA, that was a fun experience. So, two weeks and countless reformats later, I'm still where I was. Damn this overcomplicated procedure!
*sob* I just want to play a game...

1. Why do you need to reformat?
2. It's not too complicated, given you have enough RAM. (did you follow the .info?)
Posted by Trinexx on Oct. 09 2006,08:071: Now that I think about it, I really don't know. I could have just renamed the backup .xserverrc file...
2: Aye, I used the configuration DSL, followed the .info perfectly, but it always throws an error when I reboot :/
I'm still relatively new to Linux, my only prior experience with anything like it was running a SMAUG MUD through Cygwin.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Oct. 10 2006,00:02What's your error ...?
You could also try WDef's way of just using those 2 libraries, though I'm not even sure if the TinyX supports ogl?
Posted by Trinexx on Oct. 19 2006,16:54I kept getting the "no screens" error. I tried the basic ways of fixing it (low refresh, low res, low color depth), but I eventually gave up.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Oct. 19 2006,19:07No screens seems like it can't connect to the X server... guess the XFree86 wasn't set up correctly.
But the .info says:
Requirements - OpenGL (XFree86.dsl)
Requirements - Acceleration (nvidia.dsl)
Requirements - Linux Utils (gnu-utils.dsl)
So unless you have a h/w acc capable card (supported ATI or nvidia for DSL), I guess you're out of luck.
Posted by Trinexx on Oct. 24 2006,00:50aye, but it's not really an issue anymore. I've found plenty of things that'll run without it to keep me entertained.
Speaking of which, any ideas on why none of my programs will recognize SDL-perl?
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Oct. 24 2006,02:50There's SDL in mydsl I think... were you using that?
Posted by Trinexx on Oct. 28 2006,20:19*shrug* no clue. I'm not very smart, you see.
Besides, now that I think about it, if it uses Perl, it's not worth running.
Posted by WDef on Oct. 29 2006,14:32BTW it didn't dawn on me when reading your original post that you were talking about an extension that *needs* graphics acceleration => *of course* you need XFree86.
