Hello IO.z and the list,

i updated my GEM sources from CVS, but still no go. I will try to build without gltt, if there is no fix for the problem below...
(Hey, thats like a little poem!)

Heres my configure line
./configure  --without-mpeg3 --with-quicktime --with-avi --with-ieee1394 --enable-mmx

configure doesnt find ftgl, as I cant build ftgl. There is some error with someting being not defined in FTFace.cpp. I sent an email to Henery Maddock, FTGl creator.

Oh, Henry just got back to me! Heres his message:

> }

So that builds now...With the exception if not finding and installing FTLayout.h...

Heres my GEM load error
/usr/local/src/Gem/src/Gnu/Gem.pd_linux: /usr/local/src/Gem/src/Gnu/Gem.pd_linux: undefined symbol: _ZN8GLTTFont12setPrecisionEd

I have the latest gltt (2.5.2 installed via rpm, I have FC2t1, could there be a problem if the rpms are built for RH9? I dont know that much about Distro differences)

Thanks for the contiued help!

PS: thanks Ian for the suguestion about two libglut\'s. If I gut this able to load, and it still hangs, than that is what Ill try! The Gl that comes with X is proabably better then the one I built anyway...
