New to the board:

I am trying to install and run Gerris a CFD package using Ububtu 8.10 on a Velocity VSC-135
(and) I am having trouble installing OSMesa-7.2 or more exactly reinstalling the DRIGL

Upon running ./configure in the Mesa folder I get the following issue
__________________________________________________ ________________________________
checking for LIBDRM... yes
checking for DRIGL... configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xext xxf86vm xdamage xfixes) were not met:

No package 'xxf86vm' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables DRIGL_CFLAGS
and DRIGL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
__________________________________________________ __________________________________

I have tied to reinstall DRIGL but? I am stumped.

One note: I am using NVIDIA 9800 GT and using there cuda drivers for multi processer operations +/-

Foot note: I am new to linux / and I need to still learn C++ so I apploigize if this is a dumb question.
Thanks to anyone who could lead me in the right direction.

Hi, looks like you can install it from the ubuntu repos instead of having to compile it. You can either search synaptic for libosmesa6 and install it or open a terminal and install with

sudo apt-get install libosmesa6


When compiling if you see something like


checking for DRIGL... configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xext xxf86vm xdamage xfixes) were not met:

No package 'xxf86vm' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
it means you need to install the missing packages and normally the dev versions of that package so for xxf86vm you would need to install libxxf86vm-dev.

Thanks:

Yes manually install sometimes is not the way to go! ( I chased the software errors) but did not stop to read the error itself (A missing package) Thanks for your time. I feel kind of dumb.

I letting Ubuntu reinstall the PKG + version 6X of Mesa via the apt-get and it was just the ticket I ca now compile gfsview and it seams to be running.

Thanks again!

Some times it is hard to see the forest for the trees+/-
