None Trouble with obtaining an open GL Window 

Forum: Installation and Configuration
Date: 17 May, 2010
From: Thomas Eden <Thomas Eden>


I am having trouble getting the Geant 4 Open GL working on my system. First my operating system is RedHat 5.4 64 bit. Second, I was able to build Geant 4 (version 4.9.0 because my compiler is gcc 4.1.2), while selecting the OpenGL and RayTracing options in the build process. I set my relevant 'OGLLIBS' and 'X11LIBS' environment variables to

export OGLLIBS=-L/usr/lib64 -lGLU -lGL and export X11LIBS=-L/usr/lib64 -lXmu -lXt -lXext -lX11 -lSM -lICE

My X-windows seem to be set properly, too ('xclock' produces a working clock). Further I am able to run the 'A01app' executable successfully. When I do the following:

Idle> /vis/open OGLIX

I get the following response echoed to the screen:

X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  1 (X_CreateWindow)
  Serial number of failed request:  27
  Current serial number in output stream:  34

So I am at a quandary here with respect to opening a viewer. I've noticed some postings that address certain aspects of Open GL, but after going through the complete build one more time (thinking I have made an error), I am conceding to asking help from this forum. Any help with resolving this dilemma would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.
