Is it possible to check if stencil is supported by the graficcard? Or is it another way in windows? I ask because I can use stencil buffer under windows but not under linux? Maybe it is my "super-l33t" linux skills... which i hope..

Nice idea.... It has "8-Bit Stencil Buffer".. What is 8-Bit? Can you have more? Is it possible that Linux needs more then 8-Bit to work?

no diferent under linux as it is under windows
8bit hardware stencil is usually only supported in a 24/32 bit colour window (with 24bits depth + 8 bits stencil)
www.libsdl.org to see how to request a opengl window with stencil (for linux + windows)
