Description Hugh 2004-02-05 22:37:15 EST
Description of problem:the freeglut and freeglut-devel RPMs shipped
with Fedora core are worthless as they are incompatible with standard
GLUT code.

How reproducible: Try to compile any program written for GLUT.

Actual results: massive number of compilation errors due to header
file GL/glut.h missing, as RPM has installed GL/freeglut.h

Expected results: GLUT programs that contain
#include <GL/glut.h>
ought to compile

Yes, I realize that.  For a detailed explanation of why this is so,
and what the plan for the future is with regards to glut and
freeglut, you can read bug #107228 for details.
