    Re: Beginning under Linux

    Hi !

    A good tip is to ask on the Linux section of this forum

    Anyway, if you have one of the more common Linux distributions installed (RedHat, Suse or whatever), then you should have everything you need, you must have the gcc compiler package installed, X with the development libraries and so on.

    You get Mesa with X with gives you at least software OpenGL support, if you have a card with OpenGL hardware then you possible need to go to their website and get drivers, nVIDIA for example have drivers for Linux on their website.

    If you also download the Mesa source ( you will find lots of simple examples that should give you a good start.

    I hope that gives you some help...
