Ticket #134 (closed defect: fixed)

Haskell Platform 2010.2.0.0 is affected by GLUT bug with libXi and libXmu

Reported by: VVLysikov Owned by: panne
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: GLUT Keywords:


I installed HP from source on my Ubuntu Lucid amd64. Then I ran cabal install haskell-platform-test and got a bunch of GLUT unresolved symbol errors at linking stage (log attached).

After a short googling I found some discussions about this issue. It is caused by the dependence of GLUT on libXi and libXmu libraries. I suggest checking existence of this libraries in the top ./configure script of HP.

I don't see how we can depend on those libraries in the generic HP because the need for those libs is specific to the OS install of GLUT. For example, on both Windows and Mac those libraries don't even exist.

Ideas, anyone?

I've successfully compiled the 2013.2.0.0 platform on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (x64), so I think we can safely close this ancient ticket.
