vtk5 needs xorg-server and libGL

Reported by: jjstickel@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: x11prefix Cc:
Port: vtk5


vtk5 is sensitive to the versions of the X11 and opengl libraries that are used. The most recent vtk5 port (as of 4/24/09) uses macports libX11 but apple libGL (${x11prefix}/lib/libGL.dylib). This results in a Bus error on Tiger. I found it was insufficient to simply use the opengl libraries provided by the mesa port (${prefix}/lib/libGL.dylib), which also resulted in a Bus error. However, by also using provided by the port xorg-server, it works! Attached is a patch for the Portfile to add xorg-server as a dependency for Tiger and to specify the libGl in ${prefix}.

Looks like this was mostly fixed in revision 2 that is in the current port tree. I don't know if you agree that the xorg-server needs to be added as a dependency, but otherwise this ticket could be closed.
