as DevIL site says, i think framework is no longer developped. but that's what Ogre is using and maybe that's because of the issues we are having.
it is not heavily modified. i just took output of make command, and replaced '-lpng' or those statements with '/usr/lib/libpng.a'. DevIL seems to use libpng, libtiff, libmng and libjpeg but not other libraries. i disabled support for mng because libmng.a is, somehow, not provided for platforms that i know of. supports for other image formats are embedded in DevIL. i think it might be just a little change to configure script or something, but i have no idea what i need to do:(
thanks and glad it worked.
does 'devil_static_linux.zip' work if you create symbolic link called 'libIL.so.1' pointing to 'libIL.so', 'libILU.so.1' pointing to 'libILU.so' and 'libILUT.so.1' pointing to 'libILUT.so'?
because libILU.so and libILUT.so come with devil-20050526.zip are staticly linked to libIL.so, but i don't think i need to do that.
