    To answer the question in your topic title, yes.

    How to set up and get started with native OpenGL library?
    Well what do you mean by "native" in this content?

    Second what operating system are you trying to use? OpenGL is a cross-platform API so how you install this beast depends on your operating system. See this link for more information.

    Native in my message means directly, not across simple utilities like GLUT. I'm using Linux with GCC.
