Particle Engine

I want to learn how to build a particle engine, I have a Linux/GLUT system so that neither the NeHe nor Nate’s tutorials are suitable. Does anyone have any suggestions or links to a good tutorial suitable for me??

Since you want to make a particle engine, I assume you already know how to use GLUT, so why not visit NeHe’s site and have a look at his particle tutorial (#19). It doesn’t matter what platform it’s written for. The concept is more or less identical. And as long as it’s the same language, I don’t see any problem at all to understand how it works.
