Title: LINUX installation
Post by: ghost01 on August 27, 2007, 11:47:15

I try to use lwjgl on a RedHat 8. I unziped the corresponding file and type the test command in a x-term. The result is the following error:

... Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /root/TMP/lwjgl-1.1.2/native/linux/liblwjgl.so: libXcursor.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 What can I do ???

I don't think you'll get a current lwjgl release to run on red hat 8 which is quite old. If you really want to, you might be able to download the lwjgl source code and modify it to work, but it would be much easier to upgrade to a current distro.
