I've just started working on a pure GLX-based version of quake2.
The reason being that I'm not aware of a way to effectively use a
source-level debugger like gdb, with the current use of dlopen()/dlsym()
Is there a way I'm missing to do this?
Otherwise, would there be any interest in seeing this
alternate version somewhere in the quake cvs repository somewhere?
BTW: as I go, I'm doing my best to make it more cross-platform
(at least for UNIXen) than the current version.
Ideally, I think that since the GLX API is somewhat standard, it should be
possible to have a single source tree, with a single unified
top-level Makefile, that will compile the same for
linux, irix, solaris, freebsd, ....
[with just minor changes for sublibraries to deal with audio handling,
The current stuff is unfortunately fragmented when it comes to build
handling, and it doesnt have to be.

I agree, and I've already been thinking about this for a while. The OS
specific subdirectories can (and should) be merged together, there is a lot
of redundant code between them all -- any bugfixes and feature enhancements
to one OS are lost to the others. I feel the merge should be done soon;
trying to merge the code after the code has diverged will be a royal PITA.
Hell, I've got another week to go before uni starts again, I'll give it a
shot and come up with some patches, hopefully people with various flavours
of OS can lend a hand to make sure it works.
I think I'll autoconfiscate the code at the same time, if no-one objects.
<Balial> Am I imagining it, or is the best way to monitor red-hat versions
to watch all the loser questions on SLUG?
