Re: incomplete Type ZBuffer

Hi All

TJF, that was the first step after which the "incomplete Type ZBuffer" appeared, after which I decided that perhaps I should
compile the library from the downloaded package.

Stay Tuned

Re: incomplete Type ZBuffer

Hi All The problem is that I can't seem to find any guide as to what the dependencies are for installing Allegro on a Linux console system. TJF, I did not install xorg, so I did and then re-compiled the libraries, but there were dependency errors during make. If anyone does have some idea as to whic...

Re: incomplete Type ZBuffer

Re: incomplete Type ZBuffer

Hi All

Re: incomplete Type ZBuffer

Hi All

The BITMAP is declared previous to the ZBUFFER
Your copy of allegro.bi will show that.

Still why does it work with GUI install and not with command line ?

Hi All Currently trying to run my Beaglebone Black application from the Debian 9 terminal without a gui installed.

Re: What do you use FreeBASIC for?

Hi All In many ways I agree with marcov, even though I am one of those "islands" heading in my own direction. However for FB to gain direction, it has to have a goal. That goal requires agreement that some particular features of FB need to be unified into one effort.(Deja Vu , have preache...

Re: Line statement conflict.

Hi All

I am using the old .bi files and libraries.

Re: Duplicate Definition

Hi Sarg Thank you for that explanation, BUT not knowing (or wanting to) know how the compiler works it is opening both files in order to get this error. So logic dictates that it knows the location of both instances of the repeated declaration. Also by allowing include files with the same name (but ...
