Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118570] New: configure does not recognize latest DirectX SDK
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2011 16:51:01 GMT

             Bug #: 118570
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: configure does not recognize latest DirectX SDK
    Classification: Application
           Product: Presentation
           Version: OOO340m0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 7
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: code

The support for direct draw has been removed from the latest DirectX SDK (from
June 2010).  configure uses the ddraw.h header file to detect the existence of
the DirectX SDK and thus fails to do so.

Direct draw, however, is used only by the DirectX 5 canvas, which on most
systems is just a seldomly used fallback. On a cygwin platform the DX5 canvas
is not built anyway.

The DirectX 9 canvas that is used on most "modern" Windows systems (i.e.
younger than 10 years) can be built with the new DirectX SDK without problem.

The proposed fix therefore is to use different detections for DirectDraw and
DirectX support in configure.
