I found a newer glu version compiled for win32.  Unfortunately winxp has a file protection scheme that won't allow me to overwrite glu32.dll with the newer version.  Is there a way to force pyopengl to use different dll's?

Hey Mike,
  You hit the nail on the head, my version of GLU is ' Microsoft Corporation'. This may be a silly question, is there any way to update glu to 1.3 on win32?

"gluBuild3DMipmaps is only available if the GLU version is 1.3 or
greater", mostly likely the system on which you are running has a GLU
version less than 1.3.

>>> from OpenGL.GLU import *
>>> gluGetString( GLU_VERSION )
>>> gluBuild3DMipmaps

Or it could be that you're running on a platform that has some strange
semantics surrounding access to GLU features for versions > 1.0.  Above
