Yes, that's what Mesa is. A software OpenGL implementation.

First of all, it would help readability if you avoided things like tripple commas and multiple punctuation marks in your posts.

Second, the easiest way to compile mesa, is by using one of the predefined makefiles in src/mesa, importing it into your favourite IDE, or creating your own. Compile, and you'll get an opengl32.dll file you can link your OpenGL apps with. Repeat the process for src/glu, if you want GLU support.

If you don't know how to do that, there are probably precompiled Mesa DLLs available somewhere on the net. Just search around.

Mesa rpm's for your distribution:
rpmfind.net

Just download a file and install it by clicking on it.

If you're using MandrakeLinux, just type "urpmi mesa" in your console.

He is talking about opengl.dll and he tried the mesa.dsw file, which is mentioned in the win32 readme. Also taking into account his obvious lack of experience, I think it's a fairly safe bet to say he runs Windows.

A compiler...

Why are you trying to use Mesa? And what are you doing here if you even don't know what program to use to compile things??
