libGL is now being required to build TB under linux
Having failed to update the source tree like for two weeks,
I just noticed the build of C-C TB now requires
library during the linking of libxul.so.
This was unfortunate since I was going through reassemblying my PC(s)
for memory-related reason, and when I thought I was done, C-C TB didin't
compile on the new PC after I installed linux and the latest C-C TB source.
It took me quite a while to figure out the cause of the failure.
Under Debian GNU/Linux, you need to run the following command
which then tells you to that libgl-dev is a meta-pacakand we should pick
up one of the existing implementations. I justsfollow the instruction
and I was done.
I install linux rather minimally these days.
automagically installs the required packages which were great!
(Except I think I needed to install hg (i.e. mercurium in the first
place myself. But then bootstrap.py upgraded it to a later version
during its execution.)
Jist thought someone might be hitting the same issue.
