In a recent posting I asked for help installing wine on my RedHat 9 system. I was getting the response: Unlocateable package: libglut.so.3
The advice I was given directed me to two websites for OpenGL support: rpmfind.net and rpm.pbone.net
Now, my problem. I don't know which file to download. I seach for libglut.so.3 and that search givse me a lot of files to choose from. I pick the one that I think is appropriate for RedHat 9
glut-3.7-12.src.rpm and glut-3.7-12.i386.rpm.
Trying to run/install either file brings up an error window stating:
Could Not Open Package
The file "/root/Root" could not be read. Make sure that you have the proper permissions on it.
I'm doing this from the root directory, and so I don't know how I could not have permissions for anything. Of course, I don't even know if I am trying to access to correct rpm file.
Did I say that I was a newbie? HELP!
