What would you like to know? OpenGL is crossplatform and therefore resources aren''t specific to Windows/Linux/MacOS/etc. If you are looking for the X11 equivalent of WGL, look for GLX, or use SDL/GLUT/ClanLib/etc.

NeHe''s tutorials have been ported to SDL, and a few (a lot?) of them to GLX. They should get you started.


Hope this helps.

It''s been a while since I''ve used OpenGL on Linux, but is Mesa3D still the implementation? If so, the Mesa web site (google search) is a good place to start.
