I'm brand new to PyOpenGL and to this list.
I have a Solaris 10 x86 application that uses wxPython. I'm upgrading
wxPython to the latest version that specifies PyOpenGL and OpenGL or
Mesa3D as prerequisites. Not knowing anything about OpenGL except
what I've been reading the last 2 days, I have a fair number of
questions. I'll try to pare them down to the basics to start, though.
1.PyOpenGL specifies OpenGL 1.1 and GLU as prerequisites. How do I
determine if OpenGL is already installed, and if so what version it
is? The initial system is an Ultra 20 with Solaris 10 6/06, though we
will be using and shipping newer releases on different boxes. Python
Note: I saw a reference to trying "xdpyinfo | grep GLX" which gave me
"GLX" and "SGI-GLX", but I'm not yet sure what this tells me.
2. If OpenGL is not on the system, I've noted that Sun only has SPARC
versions for download. Does this mean my only option is Mesa3D?
3. Do I need to install GLUT (for which I see there are Solaris x86
precompiled binaries) and GLX? Anything else?
I appreciate any help anyone might provide in helping me sort this out
to get on the right track.
