Re: Cannot find -lGL
AMD no longer supports Ubuntu drivers for my old graphics card. I would've thought this sort of thing would be open source. I have Ubuntu. Right, yeah, so... am I just boned? Wouldn't Qt installation include dependencies? Why doesn't it? Seems really dumb imo.
When I search for OpenGL in Ubuntu software center, the hits are totally irrelevant--first hit is some minesweeper game.
Did you install libgl1-mesa-dev?
Qt cannot include all possible dependencies for all existing Linux distributions and different versions. And it is not common on Linux to include everything.
So I sudo apt-get installed libgl1-mesa-dev. Then I rebooted. Now the computer doesn't start up anymore. Or, the power does come on, but I can't get to the Ubuntu home screen. BIOS is still accessible. The monitor acts as if there is no input.
Try to start your computer and then press Strg-Alt-F1. You then should see the text console (you can go back to graphic mode via Alt-F7). Does the text-console work?
