Install SDL by running the following commands:
sed -e '/_XData32/s:register long:register _Xconst long:' \ -i src/video/x11/SDL_x11sym.h && ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static && make
Now, as the
make install && install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/SDL-1.2.15/html && install -v -m644 docs/html/*.html \ /usr/share/doc/SDL-1.2.15/html
If you wish to, test the installation of SDL using the included test programs. It is not required to install any of the resulting binaries to validate the installation. Issue the following commands to build the test programs:
cd test && ./configure && make
You'll need to manually run all the test programs (they are listed
README file in this
directory). Many of them will need to be manually killed, and
you'll need to turn your speakers on with the volume at a suitable
sed -e ...: This command fixes compilation with libX11-1.6.0
switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.
--disable-alsa-shared: This switch
disables dynamically loading ALSA shared libraries.
--disable-sdl-dlopen: This switch
disables using dlopen for shared object loading. Loading image
backend libraries like libpng dynamically on the fly does not work.
--disable-x11-shared: This switch
disables dynamically loading X11 shared libraries.
As with most libraries, there is no configuration to do, save
that the library directory, i.e.,
/usr/local/lib should appear in
/etc/ld.so.conf so that ldd can find the shared
libraries. After checking that this is the case, /sbin/ldconfig should be run
while logged in as
