Hi everyone

After installing Wings 3D modeller with "sudo apt-get install wings3d" I get 
the following error when I try to run it:

--------- pasted error ---------------------
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.4.2.1 [source] [hipe] [threads:0]

Eshell V5.4.2.1  (abort with ^G)
1> Driver Failed {error,
{open_error,"/usr/lib/erlang/lib/esdl-0.94.0615/priv/sdl_driver.so: cannot 
open shared object file: No such file or directory"}}

=ERROR REPORT==== 14-Apr-2005::16:16:00 ===
Error in process <0.31.0> with exit value: {badarg,[{erlang,port_control,
[esdl_port,21,<<4 bytes>>]},{sdl,init,1},{wings_init,init,0},
{wings,init,1}]}

sh: line 0: exec: sdl_driver: not found

Fatal internal error - log written to /home/jude/wings_crash.dump
--------- pasted error ends -----------------

The referenced .dump file contains:

--------- /home/jude/wings_crash.dump -------
Dump written 2005-4-14_16-16
Window: "<Unknown Window Name>"
Crashed in:
{badarg,[{erlang,port_control,[esdl_port,21,<<32,0,16,0>>]},
         {sdl,init,1},
         {wings_init,init,0},
         {wings,init,1}]}
--------- /home/jude/wings_crash.dump ends ------

Any advice on getting this to run? Does the install miss a dependency maybe? 
The dir "/usr/lib/erlang/lib/esdl-0.94.0615/priv/" exists but is empty.

Any help gratefully recieved.

Regards,

Mark
