Looking glass installation on Rhel

Hi All

I am new to the forum. I have been looking for how to set up looking glass on red hat 8 and am struggling a bit. Mainly around the dependencies.

A lot of the dependencies don’t seem to exist for the RHEL setup, and when i try to compile, it errors out as such. is there documentation surrounding the installation on red hat? from my understanding fedora repos are not directly compatible with redhat.

for a bit more info, when i try make it stops at this step

[ 63%] Building C object renderers/EGL/CMakeFiles/renderer_EGL.dir/egl.c.o
/home/bcoleman/LookingGlass/client/renderers/EGL/egl.c:34:10: fatal error: wayland-egl.h: No such file or directory
#include <wayland-egl.h>

wayland is disabled so it shouldnt even be doing this step.

Thanks in advance

I never tried to build LG on RHEL, but successfully done so on CentOS7 which should probably give you enough to work with. see my post for details.

Everything but this devtoolset-9 will install however it now seems to have built the client ok

RHEL8 probably have a new enough gcc toolchain to not need it. good that it works now.
