I am trying to run some source files created in java on a linux
machine. The java code utilizes the gl4java libraries, and was written
on a Win32 machine (this shouldn't effect things, right?) Anyways, I
am trying to get everything necessary installed and running.
However, I am at MIT, and I do not have root access to the
configuration files (obviously!) so it's very difficult for me to
install or configure things. I don't know what MIT has installed or
not. I can run java and javac for sure, but beyond that, I have no
knowledge on how to approach this problem.
I guess someone who is familiar with MIT's computer system would be
ideal here... but it's probably not a requirement. I just need some
ideas, I guess... where do i go from here?
The install.sh file i got from the gl4java website did not run
correctly, i had errors when i tried to install Mesa (i dont even know
what mesa is, but i saw it mentioned somehwere), as far as i know,
openGL drivers are not installed (how would i install them)? I really
am clueless here. Someone wrote some 3D code of a block moving around,
and I am really anxious to take a look at it.
All help is appreciated.
