As far as I can see, the runtime for PhysX (System Software) isn't available for Linux on this page: http://developer.nvidia.com/object/physx_downloads.html Am I supposed to build a runtime version of the library manually from the source? If so, how do I do that (still a newbie at Linux)? Also, does anyone have a link where I can read more about these things. In windows there are .dll files for runtime libs, and .lib files for static linking. Are there similar ways to know, from looking at a library in Linux, whether it's runtime or not. Finally, how can I make the .exe file find the required runtime libraries? In Windows it's ok to put the library in the same file as the .exe file. Should I do the same in Linux?

Just look under "PhysX SDK Version 2.8.1 - May 2008" - the linux version of the SDK is right there. Nvidia isn't distributing the source code to PhysX, merely the binary development libraries.

Have fun!
