    Trouble finding OpenGL for a 64 bit Linux instalation


    Hi, I'm trying to find a 64 bit version of OpenGL for Linux. I tried driver from Nvidia, but it turned out that it required a specific graphics card, (which either I don't have, or VMware has trouble noticing that I do. I have a laptop with some Nvidia, Geforce with Cuda card.

    In any case, I just need to find 64bit OpenGL for Ubuntu 10.04. I keep finding 32 bit versions, or other versions that don't apply to me.

    I'm still kind of new and it's possible that I haven't been looking the most effective places. I tried google and sourceforge, but I couldn't quite find it.

    If anyone knows where I can get it, or knows of a better place to look, I would be very grateful.

    P.S. I also tried the package manager and the OpenGL site.
