Hello. I'm trying to set up SDL on my laptop, using dev-cpp as my IDE. I downloaded the devpak from the site of the same name (, and installed it. I linked -lmingw -ISDLmain -ISDL and ran what should be a very simple program (by the way, I used a Win32 project, and this is dev-cpp 5 beta). However, I get "undefined reference" errors in the linker on all the calls to SDL functions, although I linked the above libraries, have SDL.dll in windows/system and windows/system32, and in dev-cpp/lib and the project directory. Any ideas on what the problem is? I've seen message boards where some other users had the same problem. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
