I confess, I'm a complete newbie here...
I am taking a course in Graphics programming, and our labs our outfitted
with Mesa3d on Redhat 7.something. Our lab computers are, however, old,
clunky, and in high demand. My home computer is newer, less clunky, and
only I get to use it, so I decided to try to install the Mesa libraries
here so I could actually do some work outside of lab-time...
Unfortunately I'm getting more confused by the minute.
I'm running WindowsXP pro and I have both MSVC 6.0 and also the Cygwin
dev environment from the Redhat people.
Unfortunately I have an NVIDIA graphics card (GForce256).
I've had a look around the Mesa3d website, and I found the note about
needing the NVIDIA OpenGL libraries, so I scooted over to the NVIDIA
site, and promptly discovered that I can't find anything except my
graphics drivers on it.
If someone out there can give me a few hints on setting up my dev
environment at home I would be endlessly greatful. I have a lab due
tomorrow, my menus aren't working yet, and it's cold out.
I don't want to go to school today ;)
