Default OpenGL headers? Installed at all with 9xxx series!

Hello, my name is mike.

I use slackware linux, and i compile wine manually. Wine checks for installed OpenGL header files to use when compiling it's Direct 3d and openGL support. Historically the header files installed with the x86 nVIDIA installer works fine. However when trying to compile wine on a new system with freshly installed and working nvidia 9742 drivers (latest 8800 ones) wine's confiqure script reports that it cant find those files and does not then compile in support for d3d/opengl. Baaad....

Code:
configure: WARNING: Wine will be build without OpenGL or Direct3D support
configure: WARNING: because something is wrong with the OpenGL setup:
configure: WARNING: No OpenGL development headers were found
I downgraded to the last 8xxx series driver and the files are installed and detected...Is anyone else getting this problems?

You should install the GL development headers from Xorg/Mesa. Those will work fine. Nvidia only ships a limited nmber of headers anyway which aren't enough for building programs and you really don't need them.

Default Re: OpenGL headers? Installed at all with 9xxx series!

Hi,

I'm running Slackware 11 and also compile wine manually.

The problem is this:

Slackware uses a symlink from /usr/include/GL -> /usr/X11R6/include/GL (where the nVidia headers get installed)
Other distros often have a copy of the mesa headers in /usr/include/GL and no symlink. These users will probably not see this issue.

In the 9xxx series drivers (confirmed in current beta 1.0-9742 and current release 1.0-9629),

There is a duplicate definition in "glext.h"

In file included from /usr/X11R6/include/GL/gl.h:1630,
from conftest.c:128:
/usr/X11R6/include/GL/glext.h:6952: error: redefinition of typedef 'PFNGLGETUNIF
ORMUIVEXTPROC'
/usr/X11R6/include/GL/glext.h:6941: error: previous declaration of 'PFNGLGETUNIF
ORMUIVEXTPROC' was here

Removing one of the declarations caused the compile to succeed.

What would be better than? Using nvidia's header files or default xorgs?

Go it to work, thanks philcostin, should we inform the developers?

I was hoping they'd see this thread... :P

I'd use the nVidia headers, they're more likely to be in sync with the driver I think.

In general old headers are fine as this is what most users have around on their systems. Developers know this and when they need new opengl functions they dynamicly load them and don't need the headers.

Bump!

If someone at nVidia sees this post, please see my above comment about glext.h

Thanks

Phil,
That's a known bug which was discussed in several other threads on this forum. It will be resolved in the next driver release.

Thanks,
Lonni
