Description Patrick Paul 2002-05-29 17:15:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
What happened to Mesa?  Many 3d programs need Mesa, but none exists.  Some files
that used to be in Mesa in 7.2 are now in some XFree86 packages, but not all. 
For example, GL/glut.h is missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Not in SRPMS dir mirrors
2.Not on cd
3.Not in RPMS dir on ftp mirrors

Additional info:

I've read the RELEASE-NOTES, and every other piece of documentation, but no
mention of Mesa disappearing.  Quite displeased with this lack of communication.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-05-29 18:10:34 EDT
I assure you that everything is both present and working properly.  If
you've got X installed, then you've also got libGL installed.  It is not
hard to verify this really.  It's also not hard to ask someone on a
mailing list rather than filing a bogus bug report.  Bugzilla is not
a technical support forum.  Filing bug reports to ask questions only
wastes valuable developer time, as such, I do not answer tech support
questions via bugzilla unless an actual bug is involved.

rpm -q --whatprovides is your friend also.
