You can also look for RPMs at:

Good luck!

Well, after so much topics about redhat 8/9 problems, I decided to have a look at redhat website...

Wouldn't it better to use Fedora instead of redhat 9 ?? I mean, redhat 9 is the predecessor of Fedora. So, Fedora may be up to date.

To answer Rana's original query :

Glut comes with Red Hat GNU/Linux CD's, in Red Hat 9.0 check CD #2 goto RedHat/RPMS/ directory this is what you need :

glut-3.7-12.i386.rpm
glut-devel-3.7-12.i386.rpm

just do:

#rpm -ivh pacakage-name

this should help

If you never use glut, or glx or Windows library, then I advise you use glut for windowing support.
