Hi,

I'm a newbie in the world of Linux and I would make 3D games using Opengl. I've installed Mesa 4.0.2. Where can I find GLU and GLUT? URL, howto, tutorials,... ?

I use: Mandrake 8.0 Xfree86 3.3.6

Thanks for help. Sorry for my bad English, but I speak french.

First of all you should really consider upgrading to Mandrake 8.2

GLU and GLUT are part of:

libMesaglut3-devel-4.0.1-4mdk
libMesaglut3-4.0.1-4mdk
libMesaGLU1-devel-4.0.1-4mdk
libMesaGLU1-4.0.1-4mdk

On your Mandrake 8.2 CDs, or any Mandrake mirror. Visit http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ for a list of mirrors.

Don't forget that you need Xfree 4.x to access hardware acceleration.

You can either download the .tar on sourceforge.net, but it could be complicate for a newbie, if you're (I'am too... ;P).

To install it faster and in a more reliable way : use mandrake command
-> XFdrake --expert

and choose Xfree 4.0.2 and it is installed !
French Linux rules... ;P
