http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I know some linux and C/C++ and have done games using SDL. Right now I'm trying to learn OpenGL. So far I've only done very basic C/C++ OpenGL programs just to get a feel for OpenGL at roughly version 2. I have a question on OpenGL version and Mesa on Fedora 18. I'm running a Fedora 18 virtual machine on Windows 7 using VMware Player 5. On Mesa's website, it seems that Mesa 9 supported OpenGL 3. Here's some info from my glxinfo: OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on SVGA3D; build: RELEASE; OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.2.0 OpenGL shading (HowTos)
