    11 There is an OpenBSD port for SDL and various other tools.  Using
    12 this port is recommended, since it contains all the needed patches
    13 and configure arguments nicely organized in several FLAVORS you
    14 can pick from.  If you're unfamiliar with the OpenBSD ports system
    15 please visit:
    16 http://www.openbsd.org/ports.html
    17 http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html
    18 
    19 You should have a precompiled binary package on your OpenBSD 2.9
    20 or later CD-ROM, which you can easily add with pkg_add(1).
    21 
    22 If for whatever reason you're unable to take the advantage of the
    23 created port, or you want to stick with the newest fresh SDL from
    24 the current CVS repository, here are some hints of what has left
    25 unresolved and needs to be disabled/changed.
    26 
    27 To build SDL with OSS + esound:
    28 
    29 1. ./configure --disable-joystick \
    30 	--disable-pthread-sem \
    31 	--disable-nasm \
    32 	--enable-esd \
    33 	--enable-oss \
    34 	--disable-arts \
    35 	--disable-video-opengl
    36 
    37 OR
    38 
    39 To build SDL with native audio + esound (remove --disable-esd otherwise):
    40 1. ./configure --disable-joystick \
    41 	--disable-pthread-sem \
    42 	--disable-nasm \
    43 	--enable-openbsdaudio \
    44 	--enable-esd \
    45 	--disable-arts \
    46 	--disable-video-opengl
    47 
    48 If you need arts or GL, omit the responding --disable lines.  In the
    49 port, they're disabled by default, you need to specify flavors to
    50 make use of them.
    51 
    52 2. gmake    # Yeah, GNU make is required, install the package 
    53 3. sudo gmake install
    54 
    55 =========
    56 Todo List 
    57 =========
    58 
    59 Feedback is always welcome with anything you may find useful and
    60 you can suggest.
    61 For now, the following things have to be worked on:
    62 
    63 1. The native audio should be widely tested and will eventually
    64 become the default.  At that moment I have not received any 
    65 feedback which should explain its current condition.
    66 
    67 2. There are occurences of dynamic loading of drivers in the OpenGL
    68 code section, and our a.out architectures need an underscore prefixed
    69 to symbol names.  Some solution to that may be a good thing.  I can
    70 fix it theoretically, but unfortunately I do not have the needed 
    71 hardware/configuration to test it.  If you bump into that, email me.
