Build problems with debiann linuxMiscellaneous Forums/Linux Discussion/Build problems with debiann linux
| hi guys,|
i have been tinkering with Linux for a project, and i cant get bmax to compile, i have done a standard debian install with LXDE as a gui, i have also installed a python environment that works fine, but when i try a build in max i get this error at the link stage
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lX11
i am very new to Linux so any simple help will be much appreciated
| You're missing the X11 development headers.|
On Ubuntu I can simply do a: sudo apt-get install libx11-dev
The exact package name could be different for Debian though.
| Debian uses aptitude I think so the following line should install everything needed for Max:|
sudo aptitude install gcc g++ libxxf86vm-dev libglu1-mesa-dev x11proto-core-dev x11proto-gl-dev x11proto-kb-dev libasound2-dev build-essential libidn11-dev libxft-dev x11proto-xext-dev libxpm-dev
Or try running the BlitzMax Linux dependencies script which does the same thing.
