Compiling F.O.X. under Linux is normally easy (it is developped using Mandriva Linux). The only difficulty is getting the right graphic libraries (wxWidgets and OpenGL+glut). As always, send me an email at vincefn@users.sf.net if you have any trouble with the installation.

Steps:

Installing the required graphics libraries
