how do i set up opengl in multiple systems without having to change the code? i know i could use glut, but this isn''t desirable for me. i know how to do it in windows (thanks to nehe) it would be best if i could use it with gtk+. In the name of the Spoon My Homepage

it works with gtk+, no problem. just read in the doku of gtk+ how to set up opengl.. the rest stays the same anyways..

or try sdl, it works crossplatform as well

Probably it's a bad idea to bring this ooold thread up again, but I can only discourage the use of GTK+ for a game (Well, maybe I should've said I wanted to make a game ). I've tried it and had a lot of problems. GTK+ just is no game library. It's great for making GUIs, but games...
I use SDL now. I've found it a lot easier to learn and use.

EDIT: learn *and* use. Perhaps I should learn some grammar first *g*
