Uninstall it and then re-install it with:

Code: Select all

$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
Rationale:
Configure script installs packages into /usr/local/ by default (i.e. if prefix is not set).

As pkg-config* will search for .pc files in the directories /usr/lib/pkgconfig and /usr/share/pkgconfig (on a typical system),
your sdl2.pc is not found (it was into /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig).

(*)The pkg-config program is used to retrieve information about installed libraries in the system.
I did try as you suggested, but the result is the same. Screenshot and config.log file is attached.

Check the output of:

Code: Select all

$ pkg-config --variable pc_path pkg-config
Per example, here (on Arch Linux) gives:

Code: Select all

/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/share/pkgconfig
One file called sdl2.pc must exist into one of those directories.

I did what you asked me to do, but nothing like the screenshot below.

Edit : I've logged as root, configure script and make have run fine. Is there anything I can do with a normal user account on CentOS 6.x?
On a debian-based Linux system and CentOS 7.x installed in a virtual machine, there are no problems with normal user accounts.

I guess that something is wrong in your system. Configure script and make does not require root privileges.

Thanks leilei, it is on 64bit linux wx-sdl2 build, i know there are some problems with recompiler in linux , but running it without it does not make a difference, so i dont know why. is there any way to check what is happening? how to debug the thing?

@szadycbr : There were some changes to the floppy controller. I also experienced problems running it under a windows host.
My solution consisted in going into the guest bios , there into integrated peripherals, and there enable onboard FDD controller.

Give it a try.

Thanks Joseph, but i do always first configure FDD in bios, and BIOS does see FDD 1.44 during boot on list of devices but it just wont even try to boot, as You can see it on fdd icon, it checks CD or HDD but floppy wont even blink. and as i searched peripherals i seen USB in 430vx! does it work?
