Hello,

I want to render OpenGL content to a picture without opening a window.
I solved that for windows, but would rather have a platform independent solution. What would be a good approach? I must admit, that I haven't done anything with OpenGL on Linux, yet.

Thanks, Peter

Use Mesa (http://mesa3d.sourceforge.net/) . It has a really cool offscreen renderer that can render directly into a buffer you give it. No platform dependent code at all needed.
