anyone have a problem with freeing the memory after calling auxDIBImageLoad ? i have a map that has 7 textures and it loads fine. Then i make a map that has 8 textures and bam i get illeagal ops in the GDI32.DLL when i try to free the memory myself. this is the code:
GLuint Model::LoadGLTexture( const char *filename ){
	AUX_RGBImageRec *pImage;
	GLuint texture = 0;
	pImage = LoadBMP(filename);
	if ( pImage != NULL && pImage->data != NULL ){
		glGenTextures(1, &texture);
		glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture);
		gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 3, pImage->sizeX, pImage->sizeY, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, pImage->data);
		free(pImage->data); <-- THIS IS THE LINE
	return texture;
i checked the address of pImage->data and there is legitimate data there. If i remove that line it works great.. but i fear of a tremendeous memory leak if i remove that line for good. could someone tell me if it is necessary to free that data? and if it is, then why does it crash after 7 textures are loaded?

Hey guys,
I just posted an update to the texture loading with glaux, as it is really old and actually deprecated.

Using this library should fix your problems.
Hope that helps :)
