Thread: libCg.so needed to install VirtualLab 6.2.2, where can I find it?

    Default libCg.so needed to install VirtualLab 6.2.2, where can I find it?

    Hello everyone!

    I've got a warning that reads:

    There is nothing that provodes libCg.so(VERSION) and it is needed by VirtualLab 6.2.2-.2.2.noarch

    And it gives me the options:

    -Do not install 6.2.2-.2.2.noarch.
    -Break VirtualLab ignoring some of its dependencies.

    What should I do?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    A quick search on software.opensuse.org/search/ shows it in the Emulators repo: Index of /repositories/Emulators/openSUSE_11.3

    If devel package is required, install libCg-devel also.

    Cheers.

    PS
    Didn't the 1-Click Install link resolve automatically the dependencies?

    the Nvidia C for G that is in the repo is version 2
    Cg Toolkit - GPU Shader Authoring Language
    the VirtualLab 6.2.2 might be looking for the older version 1
    seeing as i found a "news" article for VirtualLab 6.2.2 dating from 2008
    ??? sometimes linking the new version of a lib to a old name works ??? sometimes not
    what is listed in your /usr/lib or lib64

    if not there is the old one on the nvidia site

    Hi this is my sisinfo:

    Linux 2.6.34-12-default i686
    openSUSE 11.3 (i586)
    4.5.00 (KDE 4.5.0)

    Intel Corporation
    i740
    swrast (without 3D acceleration) (7.8.2)

    Ram: +372.5 MiB

    CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+
    +1,666.61 MHz

    I know half what all this means hehe, since you started to say something about nvidia, Im starting to be afraid it will not run in my PC: but marble, stellarium, and celestia, does works, a little laggy but usable, can I install the nvidia cg toolkit? and if not.... it means it will simply not run right, either way thank you very much, the program just cought my curiosity but is not that important , still a shame bye!!!!

    it is just that the program you want to install is very old compared to 11.3

    and is looking for the old version 1 of the nvidia c for g lib
    the version 2 is what is installed ( and is what is in the repo )

    the c for g tool kit will NOT mess up celestia
    i have been building it since version 0.9
    PS the qt3 / kde 3 build of celestia in the repo has bugs in it , i just found that through the add on testing i do for the celestia motherload

    build the SVN celestia for gnome or the QT4 using qt-creator
