Subject: [SDL] NetBSD build patch


Hi everybody,

apparently the SDL-1.2.9 source archive could not compile "as is" on
NetBSD 2.0_STABLE due to a pthread detection issue in the configure script.

I attached a small patch that can be applied to configure.in so that SDL
can be directly (i.e. without the NetBSD package manager) configured and
built successfully on NetBSD (at least on the one I tried !).

Hope this helps,

Olivier.

This is the porting of 1.2.0 version of SDL (the latest stable one)
slouken@21
     2
to AmigaOS/68k.
slouken@21

All the bugs known of the past version have been corrected. And I've
slouken@21
     5
added all the new SDL features.

This version of SDL needs Cybergraphx V3 (r69+) or CyberGraphX V4
slouken@21
     8
and AHI v3+. Probably it works also with P96 or CGXAga, but it's 
slouken@21
     9
untested.

This version is available as linked library for SAS/C and GCC, only 68k this 
slouken@21
    12
time, a powerup (ppcemu compatible) and a morphos version will be ready quite 
slouken@21
    13
soon (i hope).

Implemented:
slouken@21
    16
slouken@21
    17
- 8/16/24/32bit video modes, both fullscreen and windowed.
slouken@21
    18
- Hardware surfaces.
slouken@21
    19
- CGX blitting acceleration.
slouken@21
    20
- CGX colorkey blitting acceleration.
slouken@21
    21
- AHI audio (8/16 bit, with any audio format), always uses unit 0 for now.
slouken@21
    22
- Thread support (maybe not 100% compatible with other implementations)
slouken@21
    23
- Semaphores 
slouken@21
    24
- Window resizing and backdrop windows (NEW)
slouken@21
    25
- Joystick/Joypad support.
slouken@21
    26
slouken@21
    27
To do:
slouken@21
    28
slouken@21
    29
- CDRom audio playing support
slouken@21
    30
- OpenGL (A guy was working on it but I've lost his tracks :( )
slouken@21

The SAS/C library is distributed with debug info attached, to strip debug info 
slouken@21
    33
simply add STRIPDEBUG argument to the linker.
slouken@21
    34
slouken@21
    35
NOTE: SDL includes debug output using kprintf, to disable it add to your 
slouken@21
    36
project a function like this:
slouken@21
    37
slouken@21
    38
void kprintf(char *a,...)
slouken@21
    39
{
slouken@21
    40
}
slouken@21
    41
slouken@21
    42
Otherwise you can redirect the debug to a console window with sushi, sashimi or
slouken@21
    43
similar tools (the default output is the internal serial port).
