Hello !!!

I have a problem with my little game for Linux !  :-\

It uses the GL.h , GLU.h and SDL.h, but it runs very slow, because the software emulation for
OpenGL is active.
I compile it with g++ and I do not know how to make it with a make-file. This is also a problem but not the main problem.
Can You help me that it runs fast again.
I have installed GLXgears and this program runs fast.
I want that my programm also running fast.

As Glxgears was installed i could not see an example which sources it used.

My hardware is an Intel-i7 with Nvidia-card.

Can you help me how to install the right Libraries and make it. :)

I'm so sorry that i could not do it but i have no example.

Thank you !!!

Hi DaCodiSn,

Perhaps someone of the readers can help you with this. The PeppermintOS team is probably not going to be able to help you as we are currently devoting most of our attention to getting the next PeppermintOS version ready for testing and release. Also, very little (if anything) in PeppermintOS that our team has programmed was created using C++.

I think your problem is most likely best addressed to a forum devoted to C++ programming.  ;)
