OpenGL problem


I'm trying to install a program from source and ./configure says I aint got glut.h, although I have got gl.h and glu.h.

I'm using the ATI linux driver, which took me ages to get working properly.

Do I need to install something else to get OpenGL working?

Any help much appreciated,

Hi dangerousdave


Glut is a library that allows programmers to write openGL programs without worrying about which platform they're on. If your program has been built using Glut, you'll have to download the libraries before you can compile.
Pre-compiled programs will already run however, so there is nothing wrong with your openGL as it is.

You can find Glut here,

http://www.opengl.org/resources/libr...wnloads.html#2

Source code only, but binaries are available for Windows. I'm assuming there will be instructions on how to compile Glut in the package, I've only ever used it on Windows.
