opengl problem (from gears sample)

R

Roberto Cm

I wanted to take a look at ruby's opengl but I'm having issues -- can
you help me out? I installed it and I can require it in irb or a file
without issue:

irb
001:0> require 'opengl'
true
002:0> include Gl, Glu, Glut
Object


I downloaded the opengl gears demo here:
http://members.shaw.ca/michael.brooks/gears_using_shaders.zip
and this won't run. It errors out with:
ruby: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.3dev/gems/ruby-opengl-0.60.1/lib/glut.so:
undefined symbol: STR2CSTR

Try installing and running it with ruby 1.8.x. The STR2CSTR macro is not
used in 1.9.2, so it looks like someone will have to update the opengl lib.

that's a shame ...

I can confirm it does work, although very slowly, in 1.8. thanks
