WANTED: Gentoo Linux BETA Testers for CustomIrrlichtBuild...

Postby Duncan Mac Leod » Tue Jun 07, 2005 1:53 am

Hi there!

For our upcoming Toolset and RPG we are in the process of making a Custom Build of the Irrlicht Engine (currently based on 0.10.0) - it's 100% API conform to Irrlicht 0.10.0 plus some additions and improvements, which are currently only available in the Win32/.NET Version (and we are about to do much more), but for Linux we have rewritten a lot of the OpenGL stuff like:

- removed all OpenGL-Extensions (#include <GL/glext.h>, glxGetProcess....)
- Extensions are automatically detected during runtime, plz include "oglext/OglExt.h" instead of "glext.h" - instead of fetching the entrypoints of an extented OpenGL Function via glXGetProc you can just call this function - problem of glXGetProcAddress[ARB] resolved on Gentoo and (hopefully) on any other Linux Distro
- now Irrlicht features its own libIrrlicht.so library 8)

We have made an eBuild (~x86) for Gentoo, so PLZ help us testing if you 'll have the time...

Thank you in advance,
Tucan Entertainment

hi Duncan!

sorry for writing so late. I'm interested in beta testing it. I got Gentoo 2005.0 with a 2.611-r6 kernel on one of my boxes. Let me know what to do to get the stuff.
