Commercial applicaton and allegro setup & installation
Member #17,215

I would like to release commercial application based on allegro5 in the future. I have no problem to get allegro running on my Windows or Linux but I am not sure what is the proper approach when I want to ensure that the appliaction will correctly run on "all" Linux and Windows systems. So I would appreciate any advice.

My current plan is to build all libraries by my self but I cannot find list of all third party dependecies of allegro library and it's modules. Is there any list like that?

Thank you for the answers.

For building the library yourself, possibly this page can help you?

Hi and thanks. It looks like really good start.

Hello archlinka,

Welcome. ;)

Since Allegro's license is essentially freeware, you can do whatever you want with it.

That said, my guide to building Allegro 5 on Windows with MinGW-W64 is a great way to start for Windows.

For Linux, I will just say right now don't bother trying to static link. Use ldd to get a list of library dependencies, and package the .so files along with your application along with a launch script that sets the LD_LIBRARY_PATH for runtime to the path to your .so files.
