I have been trying to install Stellarium, but have been forced to follow the path of downloading the Stellarium tar ball.
When I run the ./configure script it hangs on not finding GLU libraries. See script output portion below,
checking for SDL_mixer.h... (cached) yes
checking for glEnable in -lGL... yes
checking for gluLookAt in -lGLU... no
checking for gluLookAt in -lMesaGLU... no
configure: error: GLU not found - please install GLU or MesaGLU
linux:/home/dad/stellarium # make install
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
Now checking in YaST yields the following is installed.....
xorg-x11-Mesa - Mesa Libraries:
The runtime environment (libGL/libGLU) required for running OpenGL programs.
So now I am in a position whereby I cannot compile the application.
Also despite claims of some web sites having RPM's none exist for SuSE, with eventually "file not found" type of messages poping up.
So has anyone got an Idea how to get ./configure going, or know of a site that actually does have a SuSE RPM??
I am running SuSE 9.3 64 bit,
I just installed this on Debian and got the exact same messages as you... about no GLU found, linux:/home/dad/stellarium, checking YaST, make failed, etc. which is very strange as I was installing a binary package rather than compiling, plus Debian doesn't use YaST... and apt-get takes care of all the dependencies. After the errors though, it installed just fine anyway. So I'd suspect it's some kind of faulty script... maybe you should make sure you have the latest version. Or check if there are any other Mesa/GL/GLU libraries that you can install for SUSE, since it says that's what it wants... on Debian the packages are called xlibmesa-gl and xlibmesa-glu.
