ok its that simple i need help. i have dev-c++. i decided i wanted to learn openGL. downloaded a whole bunch of stuff for it pretaining to GLUT, openGLUT, GL and all this other stuff. anyways i have this sample project that i use to see if my compiler works at all. everytime i compile it gives me a build error. i looked through the wiki from the sticky thread at the top of this forum i went through fixed some stuff that the wiki said to do but it still doesnt work. i am kinda frustrated with this now and just want the sample to compile so then i can start learning. now ive posted on here before sometime ago and the first response i got to my thread was some guy being sarcastic because i didnt know what i was doing. so please dont post sarcastic answers.
all i want to know is a set of directions to set up opengl on the dev-cpp compiler and also using the xp os. just tell me a sure and set way to make the code work so that way when i bring projects back and forth to my house and school i will know how to set up my compiler.
anyways that was really long... hopefully someone can help me, and to that person thanks in advance!
