Hey everybody, im still having problems.
running red hat 8.0, installed opengl and glut, and my opengl programs work fine.  I created a shell script to speed compiling up a little
gcc $@ -I/usr/X11R6/include -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lglui -lglut -lGLU -lGL -lm -lXmu -lX11 -lXext -lXi -lXt -lSM -lICE

everything works fine but i now want to use glui to make some snazzy interface and i have hit a problem.  I modify the make file and all the .o object files are mafe files are created, then i get this error " off the top of my head /lib/ligglui.a etc... glui_.c blablabla failed.

Found a solution on here but it didnt work
they said
ar -r libglui.a  -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lglu glui_add_controls.o glui.o glui_bitmap_img_data.o glui_bitmaps.o glui_button.o glui_edittext.o glui_checkbox.o glui_node.o glui_radio.o glui_statictext.o glui_panel.o glui_separator.o glui_spinner.o glui_control.o glui_column.o glui_translation.o glui_rotation.o glui_mouse_iaction.o glui_listbox.o glui_rollout.o arcball.o algebra3.o quaternion.o

i get the error
ar: -L/usr/X11R6/lib: No such file or directory

however it exists as i can compile my open gl code!,

i cant make my archive,

does it matter where i have all my glui files .cpp, .o ect of should they be in the lib or include directories?, hey come on i am new to all this linux stuff.

Thanks guys

Drew

My ar doesn't have an option -L (or -l for that matter).  In that case, the message would mean that ./-L/usr/X11R6/lib does not exist.

It looks like you have combined a "ld" and and an "ar" command.  Remove the link libraries from the command.

ar -r libglui.a glui_add_controls.o glui.o glui_bitmap_img_data.o glui_bitmaps.o glui_button.o glui_edittext.o glui_checkbox.o glui_node.o glui_radio.o glui_statictext.o glui_panel.o glui_separator.o glui_spinner.o glui_control.o glui_column.o glui_translation.o glui_rotation.o glui_mouse_iaction.o glui_listbox.o glui_rollout.o arcball.o algebra3.o quaternion.o
