[Gate-users] OpenGL Issue

Dear Gate users,

I finally managed to install Gate on my machine running under Scientific 
Linux 5.2. However, how could it be any different, another problem 
occurred. It ist related to OpenGL. When I give the command:

/vis/open OGLSX

the window that is opened is frozen and I get the message:

libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x5b

Of course, this is not directly related to Gate, but if anybody 
encountered the same problem and found a solution, it would be very much 
appreciated. I did already a lot of searching in the internet and 
several people have that problem, but no real solution was given. I am 
using an Intel graphics adapter with chipset Q35.
For the moment I bypassed the problem by using DAWN, but with dawn one 
can not really see live what kind of geometry one is setting up.

By the way, did anybody manage to install Gate on Fedora 10?
