> Hi all,
> I was hoping to introduce my old pal OpenGL
> with my new chum, Haskell. I used cabal to
> install GLUT on my 64-bit Ubuntu machine with
> GHC 6.8.2 (installed via apt-get/synaptic).
> I followed the wiki OpenGLTutorial1 until:
> ghc -package GLUT HelloWorld.hs -o HelloWorld
> at which point my screen is filled with errors.
> The errors begin with:
> /home/paul/.cabal/lib/GLUT-
> In function `szEn_info':
> (.text+0x26c): undefined reference to `glutGet'
> This surprised me a little because I've already
> seen these same errors recently on two separate
> Windows boxes. Somehow I'd got the idea it was
> (on Windows) due to installing from a binary; though
> I guess the story is the same with apt-get. Should
> I look for an apt-get switch to reinstall GHC from
> source instead?
> Regards,
> Paul
