I have been trying to compile xearth 1.0 without success. All of the .c
turn into .o files okay, but the make fails during the link step. The
gcc -o xearth xearth.o dither.o extarr.o gif.o gifout.o mapdata.o
markers.o ppm.o ren
der.o resources.o scan.o sunpos.o x11.o -lXt -lX11 -lm
command comes back with the error message
/usr/i486-linux/bin/ld: cannot open -lXt: No such file or directory
If I understand the man page properly, ld should have been looking for
a file which is in /usr/X11R6/lib .
I assume that something is misconfigured on my systems (one Slackware
other earlier Slackware updated a lot). Among the possibilities I can
are a missing link (but /usr/X11 -> /usr/X11R6) or something that makes
command think that -lXt is the name of a file.
Things are not too fouled up, since I can compile xlock.
I can probably get an executable for xearth 1.0 somewhere, but I would
know what is going on.
Posting or email appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
