OpenGL not found (ATI fglrx/catalyst) [SOLVED]

Postby rujasu » Wed Jan 09, 2008 9:03 am

Searched "fglrx" and found only this thread, which is only semi-relevant.

viewtopic.php?t=1782

Anyway, I've switched my desktop over from an eVGA GeForce FX 5200 PCI (crap) to a VisionTek Radeon HD 2400 PRO AGP (newer crap). Surprisingly, the switch was only semi-painful, and using the proprietary ATI Catalyst (actually fglrx) drivers, I have hardware acceleration up and running.

The bad news?

SVN update, make distclean, autoreconf -i, configure.

At the end of the output:

checking for glGetString in -lGL... no
configure: error: OpenGL not found

WTF?

To be clear, libgl1-mesa-dev is installed, as is libglu1-mesa-dev, and basically the same system/software that ran Allacrost before. The issue could be related to the ATI driver. There doesn't seem to be a gl-dev library specifically for fglrx though. I can look for workarounds tomorrow, but if anyone has any other ideas, they would be appreciated.

I have an ATI card using the fglrx drivers as well... when I get home tonight I can look at my setup and let you know what it looks like...

Well, I have libGL.so in /usr/lib and it's a symlink to /usr/lib/opengl/ati/lib/libGL.so.

I also have /usr/lib/libGL.la and /usr/lib/libGLU.la as regular files, and /usr/lib/libGLU.so as a symlink to /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1.

Dunno if that'll help...

If this has been solved (I think you said it had been, rujasu) it would be nice if you could post here what you did to fix it.

Well, honestly, I re-installed a few GL libraries via Debian packaging and it worked fine.

I think it had to do with going from nVidia -> ATI... may have wiped out some GL libs that just needed to be replaced. Don't know for sure though. In general, though, I'd say if anyone else is having similar problems, try re-installing OpenGL libs.
