starting openGL


Hello,

I am wanting to start learning openGL, so I was wondering if anyone has any instructions on setting it up or a good site that explains how to set it up and also the basics of how to program in it.

Thanks,

Hi,

This is getting me confused, i went to opengl.org and it said that opengl should be part of my distrobution, but I can't find any of the libraries on my computer and when I try to run the simple Helloworld program with it it won't compile. Where do I download the libraries and what directory should i install them to?

Thanks,

Here comes *the* standard-question:

What's your distribution? :)
Maybe owners/users of the same
thing can help you finding the
appropriate files?

Cheers,
Tink
