Hello to all,
I am trying to find out how to get the function gluBuild3DMipmaps. I tried using glew but the linker says that despite is defined the function is not present. Tried also with SDL_GL_GetProcAddress and it seems that the function is not there either. I know that gluBuild3DMipmaps is included int GLU 1.3 but the question is, how do I get GLU 1.3? do I really have to grab SGI’s implementation and compile it on my own?
GLU is a GL helper utility, not a GL extension. So the function calls will not be exposed through glew. Did you link your app to the GLU library? It’s probably something like glu.dll or glu32.dll in windows.
Yes, I am linking to GLU32 (winxp sp2 VS8) infact I use gluBuild2DMipmaps (note the “2D”) all the time, but if I try to use gluBuild3DMipmaps I get the above mentioned link error.
Did anyone managed to use gluBuild3DMipmaps?
Just checked my GLU_VERSION and is “184.108.40.206 Microsoft Corporation”, so the question remains, how do we get GLU 1.3 under windows?
