Hi to all,
apologies if this is inapropriate here, but since I couldn't find solution elsewhere, and this is closest to installation FAQ, here it goes.
I use Gentoo and want to use variaous mech packages like FreeCAD and Salome, but those seem to depend on differentversions of VTK and OCCT.
I tried to upgrade to vtk-git and opencascade-7.0.0. VTK compiled fine, but OCCT-7.0 seems to expect, at least by default, old OpenGL api and vtkRenderFreetypeOpenGL.so, which is AFAIK absent from vtk>6.1.0.
I recompiled vtk with old OpenGL backend, but OCCT-7.0.0 still chokes near the end about vtkRenderingFreeTypeOpenGL.so library.
1. Are there some appropriate cmake defines or patches for this?
2. Is there a plan to lift dependecies to newer VTK ?
BTW, I saw comments on read-only access to git-repo without signed statement- I vote for that, too...
