Some things that I had to do to get it built:
- Edit the fracplanet.pro file so it could find the installed version of boost. I added the following:
LIBS += -lboost_program_options-gcc-mt
INCLUDEPATH += /usr/include/boost-1_33_1
- Edit the line 103 in /usr/include/boost-1_33_1/boost/random/mersenne_twister.hpp to
- Had to go back and install libglut for cygwin.
After that the program compiled and linked.
I ended up using Xming instead of the X server bundled with cygwin. Of course I had to make sure to start Xming before bash and set the display by hand (export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0).
Here is my first planet.
