Hello everyones!

I manage to have my PC running Linux SUSE 9.2 and get rid of the windoze os. I can compile and run an hello world program in a shell.. but now I want to move to the next level... by trying the Hello World sample from the OpenGL red book.

The problem it's that I don't have any GLUT/OpenGL includes files in my machine! sad.gif I took a look in /usr/include/GL and I got only gle.h.. no glut.h file! In fact, I output all files on my HD and I search for anything with glut.. I found only dynamic library (.so) which can be used by the program once it's compiled.

I also check on the sourceforge web site... but that seem an older version than the one I have on my system...!? And, after trying.. I got several errors trying to do the make operations. And I figure that maybe it's not the proper way of installing it on SUSE distribution.

best regards,

ALSA has replced OSS - and provides an OSS interface for compatability. So, ALSA will work for more up-to-date ditrsos, and OSS should work on all of them. I would go with ALSA, I doubt many poeple will use OSS soon.
