Perhaps ask this question in the linux forums on opengl.org. The people there should know more about that. However you can find linux ports for most of the tuts on nehe.gamedev.net . I would like to start opengl/linux programming too and I found these examples very useful. The don't explain everything but you can get a base or an idea how to do that.

You'll need a rendering context in order to display your OpenGL scene. I think you need an X server to get a rendering context.
