You can use SDL to load extensions in an OS agnostic manner. SDL is at www.libsdl.org. (http://www.libsdl.org.)

The function needed is called: SDL_GL_GetProcAddress.

If you are not using SDL, you can check out http://nehe.gamedev.net/data/lessons/lesson.asp?lesson=22
for a tutorial.

As Knackered suggested, future threads like this probably belongs in the Linux Opengl forum.
