GL checks patch for

Currently, the script checks for the GLU, GL, EGL, GLESv2 libraries even when the corresponding --disable switches are set. With this patch, the checks are ran only if necessary, that is, if the --disable switches are not set.

This also fixes the problem on OpenEmbedded builds where for example libgstgl was linked to GLU even though --disable-opengl and --enable-gles2 were passed to the configure script.

    gl: do not check for GL/GLU/EGL/GLES2 libs if disabled in configuration
Comment 2 Hamdi Rakkez 2015-07-30 12:08:01 UTC
Great but this problem is back when using Gstreamer1.5.1 :/
Comment 3 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2015-07-30 12:49:27 UTC
Can you send a config.log?

Configure Log File

This is the Log file for configure gstreamer-1.5.1-bad-plugin
Comment 5 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2015-07-30 13:22:58 UTC
Can you try with 1.5.2 or git master?
Comment 6 Hamdi Rakkez 2015-07-30 13:26:17 UTC
First I'm sorry I've sent you the wrong Log File.

Wait a minute and I'll send the appropriate file and then I'll try with 1.5.2.

Configure Log File

This is the Log file for configure gstreamer-plugins-bad 1.5.1
Comment 8 Matthew Waters (ystreet00) 2015-07-30 15:25:35 UTC
This log show that this issue is not occurring and as nothing has changed in the configure logic for a while (pre 1.5 days) I don't know what you're reporting.
Comment 9 Hamdi Rakkez 2015-07-30 15:36:51 UTC
No, there is an issue and I was able to configure correctly when I comment those lines in :

#if test "x$HAVE_GLES2" = "xno"; then
#  if test "x$NEED_GLES2" = "xyes"; then
 #   AC_MSG_ERROR([Could not find the required OpenGL|ES 2.0 libraries])
#  fi

BUT the big problem is that I don't find opengl plugin among gst-bad plugins " No such element or plugin 'opengl' "
Comment 10 Matthew Waters (ystreet00) 2015-07-30 15:45:23 UTC
That's not *this* issue.  Please open a new bug report and provide
1. OS/kernel of the host and of the target (if applicable)
2. Info on the graphics hardware/software stack (type/models/versions/etc like imx, broadcom, mali, intel, amd, nvidia, powervr, etc)
3. The updated config.log from either git master or 1.5.2
