how would i, the graphics moron (and not keen to change that) install
opengl so that opengl apps will work. let's pretend that i have no clue
what my graphics card is and that even if i did know i severely doubt
it's supported very much.
i have an x server - how do i get an opengl driver to support it?
extra bonus points to the answer that begins with "download $file.rpm
and type rpm -ivh $file.rpm"...
 i judge my monitor by: size, clarity, colors, space it takes up on
my desk. speed? well, can it display an xterm scrolling at
reading speed? then it's ok. and i don't care that much for
video games - a guy i know in uni played them so much that he
dropped out and now sells furniture. how can he buy toys on that?!
actually considering the prices i've seen on tables, he probably
does quite well. i think this has wandered way off topic...
 it's a laptop. from compaq. i'm lucky i'm not using it via a palm
pilot vt100 emulator over ttyS0.
 note that i don't distinguish between video cards and monitors all
 anyone want to live in rathfarnham? there's an isdn line here...
