    Default struggling to install Boxee

    Hi all,

    Can I please get some assistance.
    I am trying desperatly to install boxee onto my pc Boxee - Watch Movies, TV Shows and clips from the Internet on your TV.
    without success.
    I have downloaded the source code from the site and have ran

    The ./configure last few lines =
    checking for boost/shared_ptr.hpp... yes
    checking for main in -lGL... no
    configure: error: Could not find a required library. Please see the README for your platform.

    I'm not sure what this lGL is referring to
    The readme states that I need the below to run the configure, though that doesn't say lGL either?
    Can someone please point me into the right direction?

    Thank you.

    i may be wrong, but i do not believe anyone around here has
    successfully run Boxee...use advanced search
    <> or google and i think you will
    find a lot of folks trying, but none succeeding..

    i know i spent days on it, and gave up...if you find the answer please
    post it here...i'd love to have boxee
