    glfw-3 build questions


    I'm currently using glfw-2.7.8 successfully on many different versions of Linux. Very easy to built glfw-2 using, "make x11".

    Glfw-3 uses Cmake to construct the make files. I cannot get it to work, as it is requiring many libraries during the process.

    There is no documentation on building glfw-3, that I can find.

    Please help me to get glfw-3 installed.

    Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit is my current OS when writing this.

    Where are you getting stuck exactly? I appear to have built it on my 32-bit 12.04 laptop (can't remember when or why!) so if you post back with specific questions I will try to point you in the right direction - it should be as simple as installing the prerequisite -dev packages, then creating a 'Build' subdirectory (not essential - just keeps the source tree tidy) then cd'ing into it and running 'cmake ../' and then make

    I simply do
    $ cmake .
    $ make

    Thanks now I get:
    /usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib//libglfw3.a(context.c.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against `.rodata' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
    /usr/local/lib//libglfw3.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

    Hmm how to compile 3.02 with -fPIC?
