    Unhappy Compiling OpenGL (GLUT) on Linux

    I've just bought "OpenGL Programming Guide" 3rd ed.
    I'm trying to compile the very first program (see below) but can't figure out how to compile and build it. Which libraries must i include and how do I do it?
    I'm running RedHat 7.2 and I'm using the Anjuta IDE with gcc.

    Here's the complete source:
    Code:
    #include <GL/gl.h>
    #include <GL/glut.h>
    
    void display(void)
    {
    /*  clear all pixels  */
        glClear (GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);
    
    /*  draw white polygon (rectangle) with corners at
     *  (0.25, 0.25, 0.0) and (0.75, 0.75, 0.0)  
     */
        glColor3f (1.0, 1.0, 1.0);
        glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
            glVertex3f (0.25, 0.25, 0.0);
            glVertex3f (0.75, 0.25, 0.0);
            glVertex3f (0.75, 0.75, 0.0);
            glVertex3f (0.25, 0.75, 0.0);
        glEnd();
    
    /*  don't wait!  
     *  start processing buffered OpenGL routines 
     */
        glFlush ();
    }
    
    void init (void) 
    {
    /*  select clearing (background) color       */
        glClearColor (0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0);
    
    /*  initialize viewing values  */
        glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
        glLoadIdentity();
        glOrtho(0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1.0, -1.0, 1.0);
    }
    
    /* 
     *  Declare initial window size, position, and display mode
     *  (single buffer and RGBA).  Open window with "hello"
     *  in its title bar.  Call initialization routines.
     *  Register callback function to display graphics.
     *  Enter main loop and process events.
     */
    int main(int argc, char** argv)
    {
        glutInit(&argc, argv);
        glutInitDisplayMode (GLUT_SINGLE | GLUT_RGB);
        glutInitWindowSize (250, 250); 
        glutInitWindowPosition (100, 100);
        glutCreateWindow ("hello");
        init ();
        glutDisplayFunc(display); 
        glutMainLoop();
        return 0;   /* ISO C requires main to return int. */
    }

    well since as far as i know there is no official release for linux you will probably be using MesaGL, i've never used it(im unfortunatly stuck on windows) heres a link to their site you may find the info you need here

    http://www.mesa3d.org/

    ::edit::

    the guys on this message board will have better info than i can give im sure try here.
