Ticket #58 (closed defect: wontfix)

Opened 8 years ago

Last modified 4 years ago


Reported by: trevor@… Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 2010.2.0.0
Component: GLUT Keywords:
Cc: dagitj@…


I would like to propose that we remove GLUT from the spec.

  • The standard package sets for ruby and python don't include a GLUT binding, as it makes the distribution harder to install.
  • #11 cites an install problem on windows as a result of the GLUT dependency.

Change History

(My 2c: I have to admit that I was a little surprised when GLUT and OpenGL originally landed in HP, but it is harder to remove things once they are added...)

See #57. Deleting panne as the owner here as well as he seems inactive. If we keep GLUT I can be the owner.
