Problems with possible missing library [SOLVED]

Trying to compile the original foobillard package I get a series of problem along the lines of

undefined reference to `glCombiner.....

followed by

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I cannot see any other errors reported, so the missing library seems to be indicated by the glCombiner... string.


Any ideas what it might be please?

Andrew

Re: Problems with possible missing library [SOLVED]

Just curious why you don't want to install foobillard++ from extra.  Easier than compiling.  If you still want to compile maybe check here: http://foobillardplus.sourceforge.net/needs.html (which a simple google search finds).

If ABS were Britney Spears, it would sing:

I was born to make you happy.

If for any reason you cannot do what bgc1954 has suggested, always 1) search ABS directories for a dedicated PKGBUILD, and 2) create a customized package with it. Avoid installing any software directly from source code. Building a package lets you do exactly the same without introducing any mess to your system.

Good luck!

Thanks for the feedback

@bgc1954 foobillard++ is broken on both my computers, the video output is badly distorted.
@bohoomil the original foobillard is not in AUR, I was going to create a PKGBUILD for it, but it does not compile

That's why he said get the PKGBUILD from ABS, not AUR.

EDIT: ah, I see foobillard and foobillard++ are not the same.  As a handy coincidence, someone one these forums must have been looking for help with the original foobillard a while back as I do have the PKGBUILD and patch files in my ABS tree.

If you want to take it over, I can upload the source tarball to the AUR and orphan it.

EDIT2: nevermind.  This PKGBUILD gathered sources from ftp.archlinux.org.  They are no longer there.

Re: Problems with possible missing library [SOLVED]

Not much good anyway if I cannot compile it. Any ideas about the original question?

Re: Problems with possible missing library [SOLVED]

Not really.  I tend to ignore error messages containing 'dot dot dot'.  They mean one of two things: your computer is hiding important information from you, or you are hiding important information from us.  The solution to the former is to stop using <unnamed proprietary OS>, the solution to the latter - well I'll let you figure that out.

Re: Problems with possible missing library [SOLVED]

Or I am hiding multiple lines starting with exactly the same information, to avoid boring you with tedious detail. Anyway turns out it is to do with OpenGL so at least I can now get on with looking for the problem

Thanks for the help

*headdesk*

Details are not tedious.  Trying to solve a problem without being given the relevant information is.
