    Linking error: undefined reference to glXSwapIntervalEXT

    I am trying to call glXSwapIntervalEXT in my Linux application.

    I declared GLX_GLXEXT_PROTOTYPES in the user definitions, and the header file is found. However, my program cannot link due to an undefined reference to this function.

    I am trying this text in the compiler options in Code::Bliocks:
    -lGLEW -lglut -lGL -lGLU -lXext

    I also tried adding "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/" in the linker settings, but to no avail.

    Any idea what I need to add to make this build?

    This should be defined by your libGL library, not GLEW.


    Code :
    > nm -Do /usr/lib64/ | grep glXSwapIntervalEXT
    /usr/lib64/ T glXSwapIntervalEXT
    > nm -Do /usr/lib/ | grep glXSwapIntervalEXT
    /usr/lib/ T glXSwapIntervalEXT
    > glxinfo | grep OpenGL
    OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
    OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTX 560 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
    OpenGL version string: 4.4.0 NVIDIA 325.05.14
    OpenGL shading language version string: 4.40 NVIDIA via Cg compiler
    OpenGL extensions:

    Are you compiling 32-bit or 64-bit? Check the appropriate library in that case.

    That's a really odd path. Why are your GLEW libs stuffed in that dir?
