However, it mostly does software acceleration unless you have a 3dfx card This library then lo the appropriate hardware accelerated library specific to your card. I don't know much about the nVidia drivers, but I would guess that if you have them installed, libGL.

Also, if you have an older executable Quakeworld comes to mind they are sometimes linked directly to the libMesaGL. DRI installs any part of Mesa that it actually requires, and full blown Mesa is only really needed if you have an obsolete 3dfx card or you want to try to use software rendering. If it seems, as you say, that OpenGL is working, it doesn't look like you have a problem.

If OpenGL wasn't working or you were using software rendering, you'd know, your 3D performance would be terrible, but it looks like you're ok. What do you need to install plib for? Basically mesa is used for software 3d acceleration which is no good when you got hardware acceleration with your card. Actually it is no good anyway you look at it. You can have it on your system anyway - if your card does hardware acceleration it will continue to do so.

GLU Glut and so on are development libraries that are required for some programs to compile. From what it sounds like whatever you try to compile doesn't because there are development lib's missing on your system.

Good luck in finding them - that's the main reason I use gentoo. If they are there, try installing the RPMs from the CD rather than using source packages, RPMs are generally more reliable if you get one that's built for your distro. They'll tell you if they have any dependency issues which you then download the upgrade packages to and voila, no more issues. As for your compilation problems with plib, again, I would say to try and find an RPM install first. I believe you need the "load dri" line if you want hardware accelerated X, it is most likely recommended to be removed because it could cause a lot of problems if you don't have it installed properly sort of like safe mode or something BTW, what "instruction manual" are you referring to?

As for Gentoo linux, I have never used it, but from what I hear it is a sourcecode based distribution with automatic updates. If you really like compiling everything, it may be the way to go, but as I said, I have never used it. Search this Thread Advanced Search. BB code is On. Smilies are On.
