Does POSIX support provide enough, or is there further porting involved with running OpenGL on VxWorks?

Thanks

OpenGL is a specification, not a software library.

If you want to use OpenGL on any given platform, you need an OpenGL implementation for that platform. Most OpenGL implementations are highly platform specific, being tied to specific video hardware.

It appears that Mesa has been ported to vxWorks, but I have no idea regarding versions. A vxWorks forum may be able to provide more help.

OK, thanks very much. I see now Mesa is supplied with later versions of VxWorks. .
