mesa glut libraries


Hello,

I am running Mandrake 9.1.
I have installed mesa 5.0 installed.

I need to know whether any further installations are required in order to compile opengl.

I do have a copy of the glut-3.7 src file but I am having difficulty with the make file. It complains that it can't find glu.h glut.h and gl.h in the locations where the files DO exist in the src file location.

Anyway - I don't understand whether it is necessary to install glut 3.7 if I already have mesa installed.

At the moment, I cannot compile opengl (g++ ) because it cannot find glu.h no such file or directory.

#include <GL/glut.h>


Question: If glu.h gl.h and glut.h are the same thing why is it stating an error regarding glu.h and not glut.h?

I am a bit lost.

Help sincerely appreciated.


Adhara.

glu.h gl.h and glut.h are not the same thing. What is the location of the header files? Try including
#include <GL/glu.h>
#include <GL/gl.h>

Hi dopefish,

i dont have glu.h (dont know why)

I just tried installing freeglut - make failed because it couldnt find glu.h

I'm now trying to work out where to get glu.h from.

Any ideas?

if youre using mandrake 9.1, you should be able to find that in your rpm database. search for mesa, and youll find a package that is named something like MesaGLU.

I have mesa installed inc libMesaGL libMesaGLU and libMesaGLUT

I think the missing ingredient is the libMesa-devel package (not showing up on my disks and not already installed.)

Hopefully this will solve it as it contains the header files I need.

Please tell me if I'm missing something.

Thanks dopefish,

I installed mesa-devel, followed by freeglut and I can now compile opengl.



Thanks for your support.
