Extract from /usr/share/doc/opengl-1.1.0/FAQ.txt :
 
What is the difference betwwn the opengl package and the libGL-devel,
libGLU-devel, libglut-devel packages ?
--------------------------------------
 
The opengl package uses the Win32 API to render directly to Windows. It uses
driver and hardware acceleration to get fast rendering.
The other packages render through an X server, that needs to be installed and
run.
