newbie trouble building Squeak VM on Mac

Michael Haupt-3
Hi,

it's my first attempt ever to actually build a Squeak VM, hence the
crosspost to both the beginners' and VM dev lists.

I have checked out the latest VM sources from svn today, run the
configure script (for the unix platform - I have a G4 PowerBook
running Mac OS X 10.4.7), and issued "make Squeak.app".

Eventually, the build stops with an error:

/Users/haupt/squeakvm/squeak-svn/platforms/unix/plugins/B3DAcceleratorPlugin/sqUnixOpenGL.h:26:7:
error: #error *** cannot find gl.h

Huh. Apparently the configure script thought there was OpenGL on the
machine, didn't it? Anyway, where / how can I obtain that file or
exclude OpenGL support?

Thanks in advance,

Michael

now that was a stupid question. :-)

Running configure with the --without-x option did the trick. Quite obviously so.

Best,

Michael

If you're building vm-display-X11 then gl.h is /usr/X11R6/include/GL/
gl.h.  It comes with the X11 SDK.

For vm-display-Quartz the file is part of the OpenGL framework: /Sys/
Lib/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework/Headers/gl.h.  It comes with Mac OS X.

The usual reason for confusion about gl.h availability is that the  
build cannot find the xmkmf program.  If you do have the X11 SDK  
installed then make absolutely sure /usr/X11R6/bin is in your PATH  
before you try to build the VM.

Cheers,
Ian

thank you very much! Indeed, the X11 bin directory is not in the path,
so I'll try it once more with that. (Even though it works fine with
the --without-x option...)

Best,
