    The documation is farily good.

    There is a book out on linux game programming that covers it. I belive that book is called linux game programming. I have the source from the book, witch I got of the web.

    The information is writen for linux and you will need to add a few header files. When working with opengl you must include windows.h and change the path to the open gl headers.

    One final thing I have noticed that I want to use C++ when writing a game I must fource the entire thing to compile as C++ file regardless of extension, using borlands command line.

    For an opengl tutorial download the files from www.libsdl.org

    i was in your situation earlier, i went with allegro

    she's a b-tch to get working, but once you do (tell me!!) well i have it working for Linux and Dos, just not windows yet. Also, i had to abandon my lovely Borland compiler to use it the Borland support is the worst i've seen. (even worse than DX8)
