It sounds like what the last person suggested. You aren''t linking glaux.lib
I''ve found that LNK2001 usually means I''ve forgotten to link to a library.

Linking to a library is really easy to do if you are using VC++ Just go into the Project menu and choose settings.
Next choose the Link tab.
In the dialog box labeled Object/Library models insert glaux.lib
There you have it.

whose compiler are using?? if you''re using Borland''s compiler, you need to get yourself the Borland version of glaux.lib. this is a messy matter, by the way. so if you do have a Borland compiler, let me know and i''ll tell you what i did to get it to work.

keep cool

for loading graphics, i higly reccomend useing devil


:::: example ::::

unsigned int loadtex(char*name) {
unsigned int img,texture;
ilGenImages(1, &img);
texture = ilutGLBindMipmaps();
ilDeleteImages(1, &img);
return texture;

//on init call
texture = loadtex("gfx.jpg");

//in draw code call
