installing OpenGL with rpm(fedora)


I need OpenGL for a program I want to install. The problem is that Fedora does not come with it. Is there anyway to install it from an RPM and not recompile anything. Where would I get the rpm and what would it effect??? Would I need to reinstall X??

We need some more info:

1. what do you want to install that requires OpenGL?

2. Are you sure it is not already installed. If so how did you reach this conclusion?

I rpm -qa | grep -i open

I think it might involve my graphics card since its 5 yrs old.

That will not tell you if you have it installed.

#glxinfo

post the first 4 lines.

You should see openGL listed in the output as well as "direct rendering: Yes" if you have 3d exceleration for openGL games.

this is the ./configure message:

Checking for OpenGL
in None
in /usr/bin/X11/libc None
in /usr/X11R6/lib None
in /usr/lib None
#bunch more places

{'OPEN GL_LIB': 'GL', 'HAVE_OPENGL': 1}
[FAILED]
Config Failure

This is the message from glxinfo

name of display: :0.0
server glx vendor string: SG1
server glx version string: 1.2

Further down as I read, it seemed though as I had it.

You may be correct then in assuming that your vid card does not supprt it. (or it does not support your card) Let's have the card specs.

w/o looking I can pretty much tell that a 16mb card is not going to handle openGL
