Installing SDL 1.2

You may need to install the SDL 1.2 header files on your system. (I needed to install them by hand on both my Fedora and Ubuntu distros.) Following the setup I used earlier, you can do the following to pick up the headers.

Fedora

As root, run

yum install SDL-devel

Ubuntu

Run

sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev

Windows

On Windows, as usual, you have more work to do. Go to the SDL website and download the Win32 development library package. The one for use with MinGW is called SDL-devel-1.2.14-mingw32.tar.gz Unpack that into your C:\gamedev\deps\sdl folder.
