    SDL Packs in Dev C++

    I visited a site http://cone3d.gamedev.net/cgi-bin/in...ls/gfxsdl/tut1 after a suggestion to look into SDL packs for basic graphics. I followed the instructions but they are vague since I just downloaded dev c++ a few days ago and have the most recent beta version. I thought I understood where to add the linkers to the project in but I copied some basic code on how to initialize the software and it came back with.
    "Linkerer error undefined reference to 'SDL_Init'
    Linkerer error undefined reference to 'SDL_GetError'
    Linkerer error undefined reference to "WinMain@16'"

    All I entered into an already working program was

    Code:
    #include <SDL/SDL.h>
    
    int main()
    {
        if( SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO|SDL_INIT_AUDIO) <0 )
        {
               cout<<"Unable to init SDL: %s\n", SDL_GetError();
               return 1;
        }
        system("PAUSE");
        return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    There is alot more code but it all works without these two additions so I didn't bother posting it. Thank you for your time.

    I found the answer. To anyone to who reads this because you are having the same problem use Download Dev-C++ Development Packages from SourceForge.net
    it is an easier download directly into your compiler with a sample SDL code template. Sorry to anyone whos time I have wasted.
