Introduction to GLEW

The OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library (GLEW) is a cross-platform open-source C/C++ extension loading library. GLEW provides efficient run-time mechanisms for determining which OpenGL extensions are supported on the target platform. OpenGL core and extension functionality is exposed in a single header file.

Dependencies

Required

Non-Multilib

GLEW expects a binary 'arch' at /usr/bin but our script will do as well. Unless you already have '/usr/bin/arch', do the following:

echo "echo $(uname -m)" > /usr/bin/arch && chmod +x /usr/bin/arch

Compile the package:

sed -i 's/X11R6/X11R7/g' config/*
make

Install the package:

make install

If you didn't have it:

rm /usr/bin/arch

Multilib

32Bit

Again with the '/usr/bin/arch':

echo 'echo i386' > /usr/bin/arch && chmod +x /usr/bin/arch

Compile the package:

sed -i 's/X11R6/X11R7/g' config/*
sed -i 's/ cc/ cc -m32/' config/*
PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH32}" make CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" CXX="g++ ${BUILD32}"

Install the package:

make install

If you didn't have it:

rm /usr/bin/arch

N32

64Bit

For '/usr/bin/arch':

echo 'echo x86_64' > /usr/bin/arch && chmod +x /usr/bin/arch

Compile the package:

sed -i 's/X11R6/X11R7/g' config/*
sed -i 's/ cc/ cc -m64/' config/*
PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH64}" make CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" CXX="g++ ${BUILD64}"

Install the package:

make install

If you didn't have it:

rm /usr/bin/arch
