Freeglut-3.2.1

Introduction to Freeglut

Freeglut is intended to be a 100% compatible, completely opensourced clone of the GLUT library. GLUT is a window system independent toolkit for writing OpenGL programs, implementing a simple windowing API, which makes learning about and exploring OpenGL programming very easy.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-9.1 platform.

Installation of Freeglut

First, fix an issue with multiply defined symbols exposed by GCC-10:

patch -Np1 -i ../freeglut-3.2.1-gcc10_fix-1.patch

Install Freeglut by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr       \
      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release        \
      -DFREEGLUT_BUILD_DEMOS=OFF        \
      -DFREEGLUT_BUILD_STATIC_LIBS=OFF  \
      -Wno-dev .. &&

make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install
