To subscribers of the xforms list from Greger Cronquist <> :


I have a probably very simple, but equally annoying, problem: We have an
application written using OpenGL/GLUT and we thought we'd add an xform for
a simple user-interface. We're using an Indigo w/ IRIX 6.2, xforms v0.86
compiled for IRIX 5.3. Using fdesign works fine, compiling demos works
fine (also gl.c, glwin.c), even compiling our xforms-user-interface works
fine. The problem is when we add the xforms code to the OpenGL code --
then we get the following error-message:

cc mainframe.c -L../glut/lib/glut/ -lglut -lGL -lX11 -lm -lGLU -lXmu -o \
cool -Lsettings/ -lforms -lX11

ld: ERROR 33: Unresolved text symbol "pow" -- 1st referenced by
ld: INFO 60: Output file removed because of error.

Does anybody have any idea of what we do wrong?

Thanks in advance,
