noob here

using fedora core 1

I have installed Mesa 6 at /usr/local

when I try and run a demo such as "gears"

I get the following error

"error while loading shared libraries:libglut.so.3:cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

my apologies for the "noobness of this question"

thanks for your time

The error is telling you that you don't have glut installed on your computer. ie "No such file".

You have to install the glut library, there is both a run time and developer libraries needed to use glut.

You need to go to the site that supports your version of Linux and see if they have the pre-compiled GLUT libraries.

If you have RedHat just download the glut RPM installation files.
