specific SDL directory
« on: November 06, 2012, 05:43:02 pm »

Hello, I am trying to install UQM on Linux. So far I installed required packages into custom derictories. Is it possible to specify where SDL is installed when running uqm config

I am getting following text
'echo -n' capable echo found.
Sed stream editor found.
tr found.
Make found.
build/unix/config_proginfo_host: line 253: libmikmod-config: command not found
build/unix/config_proginfo_host: line 254: libmikmod-config: command not found
build/unix/config_proginfo_host: line 255: libmikmod-config: command not found
GNU C compiler found.
We have a C preprocessor.
We have a C dependency generator.
We have a C compiler.
We have a linker.
Little-endian machine detected.
Found version 1.2.7 of Simple DirectMedia Layer, but version 1.2.8 is required!

Is it possible to do something like --with-sdl-prefix=/my_sdl_dir ? I have 1.2.15 installed but it is not in standard directory and it is not possible here to install SDL in any other way.

You could try working around this by using the environment variables for GCC and ld to change where the libraries are sought.

The location of the SDL library is determined by the output of the 'sdl-config' command. If you make sure that the directory which contains the correct version is listed in your path before the other version, then it should be found and used by UQM.
