Date: Thu, 28 Mar 2002 09:20:03 +0200 From: "Mike Gorchak" <mike@malva.ua> Subject: New QNX patch. Hi ! 1. Removed warning (possible bug) with invalid type, passing to the function in ph_WarpedMotion. 2. Rewritten handler of Ph_WM_RESIZE message, now works, but buggy (old handler doesn't work at all). 3. Added stub handler for Ph_WM_MAX (maximize) message. 4. Added more #ifdef HAVE_OPENGL to disable OpenGL stuff when it not needed. 5. Added support for SDL_NOFRAME and SDL_RESIZABLE flags (in OpenGL windows too). 6. Added cosmetic changes, if no SDL_RESIZABLE flag defined, disable resize handlers in window border and maximize button at caption. 7. Fixed my bug with invalid arguments count passed to PtCreateWidget call. 8. Fixed some palette problems. 9. Updated README.QNX file. And I changed testgl.c test application: 10. Added in testgl.c application support for SDL_NOFRAME flag and option -noframe.

README by Mike Gorchak <mike@malva.ua>

    OpenGL in window mode  works well  and  stable, in fullscreen
mode too, but fullscreen mode has not been heavily tested.
    If you have QNX RtP 6.1.0 w/ or w/o Patch A you must download
new Photon3D runtime from http://developers.qnx.com. The versions
of OS before 6.1.0 are not supported.

Problems:
1. While  creating  OpenGL  context  software  renderer  mode  is
   artificially selected (QSSL made acceleration only for  Voodoo
   boards in fullscreen mode, sorry but I don't have  this board,
   if you want acceleration - you may remove some line  in source
   code).
2. Photon has some errors in detecting  how  much bits  per pixel
   videomode has.
3. No  shared  libraries  yet.  We  need  manually  set  flag  to
   'configure' --disable-shared.

Some building issues:

    Run configure script without x11 support, e.g.:

    a) for OpenGL support:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local \
                --disable-video-x11 \
                --disable-shared

    b) without OpenGL support:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local \
                --disable-video-x11 \
                --disable-shared    \
                --disable-video-opengl

    In test directory  also run  ./configure  script  without x11
support, e.g.:

    ./configure  --with-sdl-prefix=/usr/local      \
                 --with-sdl-exec-prefix=/usr/local \
                 --prefix=/usr/local --without-x
