    problems with tuxracer

    Hi !

    first my system:
    2.6.8 kernel
    ati radeon 9500
    xorg 6.7
    ati-driver 3.9.0

    i have the newest Mesa installed, but when i try to install tuxracer i get
    this messages:

    ./configure --prefix=/home/nurbs/Tuxracer --with-gl-libs=/usr/local/lib
    --with-gl-inc=/usr/local/include/GL/ --enable-stencil-buffer *

    loading cache ./config.cache
    checking for a BSD compatible install... /bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes

    checking whether glx.h defines glXGetProcAddressARB... no
    configure: error: Your copy of glx.h is out of date. *You can get a more
    recent copy from the latest Mesa distribution

    What distro are you using? Is there not a package available precompiled? I was also under the impression (could be wrong here) that ATI and NVidia had their own versions of the GL libraries, so you wouldn't want to use the Mesa Libs.

    i have gentoo, and tuxracer installed
    but i downloaded the sources because i want to develop the game myself.
    i wanted to code antialiasing and such stuff.

    I don't know man but I'm getting the same problems with Slack10.0... I'm rgretting the upgrade from Slack 9.1... everything worked like a charm in it!

    Any help would be appreciated... I'm sure this is a distro-specific problem... but even the Slack10.0 tuxracer packages won't work!!!! Compiling is Slack10.0 users' only hope can you please post any information that might be helpful to us.

    Thank you very very much in advance!

    Ok! I found a solution to the tuxracer installation error in Slackware... here is the solution

    BTW.... this is only for those who wish to install the precompiled packages...
    You want to download the slack tuxracer package or even tuxkart and use installpkg command to install them... they will work after following the guide at that site.
    I still can't compile the program for some odd reason. Well... one problem solved... another to go.
