Apparently either I am completely retarded or this is completely obfuscated. Where on earth do I download the .h and .lib files, or even the source itself, for win32 opengl? I found it for linux after (A LOT) of searching, but I cant find anything for windows. I can find PLENTY of glut implementations, but nothing with the underlying GL.
I have searched literally ALL DAY. Nothing has come up. I tried using MesaLib on both windows and linux. On Windows, the Makefile includes references to several things that dont exist in windows, like ls, and I dont know enough how to fix it. The VC7 project is riddled with errors that I can only assume are generated from me doing something wrong, but as usual it seems like I am the first one to ever have these things happen to me.
Some of the errors from Visual Studio:
C:\MesaLib-6.5.2\Mesa-6.5.2\src\mesa\shader\arbprogparse.c(3706): error C2054: expected ‘(’ to follow ‘extension’
C:\MesaLib-6.5.2\Mesa-6.5.2\src\mesa\shader\arbprogparse.c(3826): error C2065: ‘core_grammar_text’ : undeclared identifier
C:\MesaLib-6.5.2\Mesa-6.5.2\src\mesa\shader\arbprogparse.c(3706): error C2085: ‘core_grammar_text’ : not in formal parameter list
C:\MesaLib-6.5.2\Mesa-6.5.2\src\mesa\shader\arbprogparse.c(3706): error C2143: syntax error : missing ‘;’ before ‘=’
In Linux, I am using FreeGlut, and everything compiles correctly, but every program I run provided by my professor spews out this error:
freeglut (./ifs): ERROR: Internal error <Visual with necessary capabilities not found> in function fgOpenWindow
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 4 (X_DestroyWindow)
Resource id in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 16
Current serial number in output stream: 19
I googled the error but nothing concise popped up, lots of people seemed to have the error in all walks of programming but never a solution that worked for me.
My Windows box is Windows XP and my linux box is Ubuntu Dapper 64bit.
Does life just hate me or does someone know what I am doing wrong?
