Building under linux/unix is explained in the OpenSceneGraph/READEME

It's as simple as:

  cd OpenSceneGraph
  cmake .
  make -j 8
  sudo make install

You may wish to pull in some 3rd party dependencies if there are
specific.  There are a list is packages that you can pull in via
apt-get on the openscenegraph documentation section.

If there is an error you are seeing please tell us.

The OSG is fundamentally cross platform, it's only the Windowing setup
and build that may vary across platforms.  Linux is most straight
forward of all platforms to build upon, most of what you need to know
is written above, yes, it's really that simple, the rest of the OSG
stuff will be cross platform so examples and tutorials will also be
applicable for all platforms..
