Im still trying to compile the small program shared_vertices from the book BEGINNING OPENGL game programing 2nd edition using Mingw under windows (C++).

Now ive put the librarys libSDLmain.a & libSDL.a in the lib folder of mingw,
Ive added the .h files to mingw ie SDL/.. & GL/ files gl.h, glu.h and glut.h

and ive added the dependencies to the windows system32 folder

Then i try and compile using the following
g++ -o test.exe main.cpp -lmingw32 -lSDLmain -lSDL -lopengl32 -lglu32 -lglut32 -lwinmm -lgdi32 -lGLee

When i compile i get the following error

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

and thats it

My question is what am i missing or is there a way of getting more info out of mingw to determing what librarys im not linking.?

I have managed to get the example from chapter 1 to compile.

Thankyou in advance.
