> as the subject say ... has anybody running freeglut under osx without x11=
Some years ago we ported under Mac OS X a project which was originally
written for BSD and Linux, and using Glut. At first we had it managed
by X11, but after some tricky changes we made it work without it.
Unfortunately, it was too much time ago to remember and explain you
the steps to do so. All I can tell you is that it is possible with
Glut, without changing the code. It was all about libraries and
configuration tweeking. So I guess it should work with freeglut
too. Sorry for this superficial answer...
