Mandrake 8.1

i’m running mandrake 8.1 and i have a problem installing another
program(avi-xmms). it says that it can’t find the sdl-config script.
so naturally i tried to install sdl on my system and none of the
binaries work for me and neither does the source code. when i try
installing the binary which seems to be for mandrake 8.1 it fails saying
already installed and pointing to the binary file as the problem. i’m
lost on what to do and i read in the faq about the kde libraries and
tried that but it didn’t work. i’d appreciate any help i can get and if
there’s information i’ve left out that’s anyone needs i’ll find it out.

Do you have the SDL development package?

knghtbrd at galen:~$ dpkg -S which sdl-config
libsdl1.2-dev: /usr/bin/sdl-config

Now I realize Mandrake is SO not Debian, however the script is useful only
for compiling SDL applications - telling you where the .so and includes
can be found. That’s generally a job for a development package.On Fri, Mar 22, 2002 at 08:32:08PM -0500, jason miklacic wrote:

I don’t see a difference at all :slight_smile:

[stephan at 1stpc stephan]$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/sdl-config
libSDL1.2-devel-1.2.3-3mdk

BTW: I tried DGA with current CVS and it seems to be broken.

Several XFree86 tests do fail. Also there is no DGA 2.0 test anymore.

Seems like -I$(top_srcdir)/include is missing in CFLAGS.

Ah, it looks like it works depending on what version of automake you have.
It’s fixed now.

Thank you very much for catching that!
