there were not errors that i could see i even tried to install the pervios version of glut but then would i have to reinstall torcs to. At the end of the make install command it said that it couldn't go into several directories, but it did not give and error message it just stated that there was nothing to do in them.

Ok, find where the file libglut.so is located. Start by looking in /usr/X11R6/lib or similar, then searching the /usr directory recursively (including subdirectories). Your file manager from KDE or Gnome should have a search button.

Expand to a full search of the filesystem, looking for anything of the form libglut.*

rpm -qa | grep glut //see if its installed.

if not, get the latest cersion of glut from http://rpmfind.net
and then as root rpm -Uvh Glut-*.rpm

if glut IS installed, (according to rpm -qa | grep glut)
then

find / | grep libglut.so

then create a link to it in the place that torcs looks for it...

ln -s [where libglut.so.# is] [ where torcs thinks glut should be, reported by that error message u got]
