Default mandrake 9, geforce4 440mx, opengl

I think I had it right the first time.

I installed the rpms, edited the config file, got the Nvidia splash screen at startup, and tux racer ran MUCH faster. Everything looks good.

Based on this can someone tell me if OpenGL is running well?

The reason I ask is that I'm trying to get Half-Life running with wine. When I do './configure --enable-opengl' , I don't get any opengl support.

I'm sorry if this is off topic, I'm trying to confirm that my nvidia drivers are setup correctly.

Thanks so much,
Brandon

Your nVidia/OpenGL drivers are fine if TuxRacer runs OK. However, since you are compiling Wine from source, you will need more than just the libraries that nVidia provides -- you'll need a GL/gl.h, GL/glu.h, GL/glext.h, and a few other header files that come from various -devel packages.

To find out why OpenGL support isn't getting added, check the output of the configure script manually -- or just do a ./configure --enable-opengl >config.txt and attach the config.txt to your next post, and I'll take a look at it.

Thank you so much!

Here's the file. Hope this is an easy one and that maybe someone else will benefit from my stupidity.

Well this is kind of strange, as it doesn't even check for OpenGL headers and such. However, this might be part of the problem:

Quote:
*** Warning: X development files not found. Wine will be built without
*** X support, which currently does not work, and would probably not be
*** what you want anyway. You will need to install devel packages of
*** Xlib/Xfree86 at the very least.
You should install XFree86-devel (I think is what Mandrake calls it anyway...), run /sbin/ldconfig as root, and try again. Recreating the config.txt would be appropriate as well, if GL still doesn't work. Or, you could manually check for some sort of problem with GL/glx.h or whatever -- it will print a message like "checking for GL/glx.h usability: no", or something.

Also, now that I think about it, the config.log file that gets generated would be useful as well, if you attach another config.txt.

I installed the XFree86-devel package, and re-ran the .configure. The attached file is the result.

According to the howto I'm using, all is right with the world. That X devel error is gone, and it checked for and found the GL stuff.

You rock. Thanks.
