Question about SDL_ttf

I have recently decided to use the SDL_ttf library for font support in
my recent project. When I first began using it earlier tonight I had a
problem with the TTF_Init() function failing. I solved this by linking
my app to the freetype library along with the SDL_ttf library. Now,
when I load a font, it fails (it returns a NULL pointer). Is there any
other library I need to link to inorder or this to work? I know that
the file exists, and I’m using a standard font size of 12.

Any ideas would be appreciated…

I appologize for the last post - I am was NOT calling TTF_Init() at the
time of this post - I thought I was but had commented it out due to lack
of sleep. TTF_Init() still fails. Any idea WHY it would fail? I guess
I could download the freetype source and see what it does if nothing
else…

Thanks again, and sorry for that bad post.
