The source code for the driver is in Mesa-3.1/src/BeOS/GLView.cpp
It's not 100% finished at this time but many GLUT-based demos are
working. Specifically, color index mode isn't implemented at all.
No optimizations have been made at this time. Any volunteers?

GLUT
It seems that you have to recompile GLUT with libMesaGL.so instead
of libGL.so in order for everything to work. I'm not sure why.
In any case, you'll have to download and compile GLUT for BeOS and
put libglut.so in the Mesa-3.x/lib/ directory before you can compile
the demos/, samples/ and book/ programs.
GLUT for BeOS can be found at
A version of GLUT 2.5 for BeOS can be found in src-glut.beos/.
The original distribution can be obtained from

This is a special version of GLUT adapted for the BeOS. I don't

The Glide library hasn't been updated for BeOS R4, to my knowledge, as
of February, 1999.
