I am getting this errormessage when attempting to build
under FC1.

    hi...

    your problem same as mine so i read installation
    instruction and i downloaded tcl and tk source file from
    "https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=10894"
    and i tried " python setup.py build_togl
    --tcl-source=/your/soure/directory
    --tk-source=/your/source/directory" command but i get same
    error. So how can i solve this problem ?

    Thank you..

    Same problem. I am under Gentoo, using python 2.3.3 and tk8.4

    This appears to be a problem with the Togl build script not
    picking up the libraries for some reason. I'm looking into
    it now.

    Somehow I deleted the call to copy the option dictionary
    into the togl_build command. Darned if I know why I did it,
    but putting it back in seems to solve the problem. In
    togl_setup.py:

    def finalize_options (self):
    """Finalise the options for building, we add Togl-specific
    includes/libs"""
    distutils.command.build_ext.build_ext.finalize_options( self )
    self.distribution._set_command_options(
    self, self.distribution.get_option_dict('build_togl')
    )
    if not Togl or not self.distribution.BUILD_TOGL:
    return
    tkDirs = ['generic', 'xlib' ]
    tclDirs = [ 'generic', 'win', ] #'include', ]

    is how the first few lines of finalize_options should look.

    Tested on Gentoo, but someone on Fedora should test to see
    if it works there. To test, checkout the maint-2_0 branch
    from CVS (you'll need SWIG 1.3.13 installed) (or just
    manually patch the file as outlined against the 2.0.1.08
    tarball).

    I have manually patched the togl_setup.py file from the 2.0.1.08
    tarball. I don't have swig installed. I have still the same
    error :

    src/Togl-1.6/togl.c: In function `Togl_Configure':
    src/Togl-1.6/togl.c:1070: warning: passing arg 5 of pointer

    There is also a lot a file not found before :
    ...
    package init file 'OpenGL/Demo/NeHe/__init__.py' not found
    (or not a regular file)
    package init file 'OpenGL/Demo/GLUT/examples/__init__.py'
    not found (or not a regular file)
    package init file 'OpenGL/Demo/GLE/__init__.py' not found
    (or not a regular file)
    package init file 'OpenGL/scripts/__init__.py' not found (or
    not a regular file)

    Okay, let's get down and dirty, add these lines:

    self.include_dirs.extend( self.distribution.include_dirs )
    self.library_dirs.extend( self.distribution.library_dirs )

    just after the lines:

    self.include_dirs.extend( newIncludes )
    self.library_dirs.append(
    os.path.normpath(os.path.join(tk.getvar('tk_library'), '..')) )

    the "package init file" warnings are because those
    directories are not actually packages, they're just
    collections of Python files/scripts. Should fix that some
    day I suppose, just more distutils hacking that I really
    don't have time for.
