Hi,

The default compilation procedure (perl Makefile.PL && make) doesn't compile the netscape/mozilla plugin (in the Plugin directory).
It would be great if it could !

Best regards,

    Hi Pierre;

    It should compile, depending on whether certain conditions are met in the Makefile.PL. What platform are you compiling it for? What OS??

    The code in the Makefile.PL checks for a valid javac compiler; and the NETSCAPE_INST entry in the vrml.conf* file (for your system) to be defined.

    After the Perl Makefile.PL, edit the Makefile, and see if the "Plugin:" label has code with it.

    Please get back to me, and we'll figure this one out.

    Ok - it was found that there was a problem with performing the compile on some AMD64 platforms. This has been
    corrected. Note that the plugin code on AMD64 boxes does not "swallow" the freewrl window; there used to be a problem
    with passing window IDs on some AMD64 linux platforms, so this code has been disabled.

    The changes to the vrml.conf files for AMD64 boxes.

    I hope this fixes your problem.

    John Stewart.

    I was compiling it on Mandriva Linux 2007.
    I will test with the latest version and see if it is ok now

    So I tried with 1.19.5

    I don't have a java compiler but this doesn't seem mandatory (?)
    After the "perl Makefile.PL" command, I have in the Makefile :

    Plugin: $(PLOBJS)
    $(CC) -shared -o Plugin/npfreewrl.so $(PLOBJS)

    ... but the plugin is not compiled :-/
