Question OPENGL visualisation on geant4.10.0 using mac os x 10.9 

Forum: Installation and Configuration
Date: 06 Feb, 2014
From: Pete Wu <Pete Wu>

Hi,

I have just successfully installed GEANT4.10.0 on mac OS X 10.9 by following the installation guide provided by the Geant4 Collaboration. During the installation process I did not get any errors, then when I tried to compile example B1 it also seemed to be successful and did not give any error messages. However, when I try to run the example code or any other examples in the basic examples directory provided by GEANT4, there is a problem with the visualisation using Open GL. The output and error message that is displayed is:

If I run the examples without using visualisation I donít get any errors. Can anyone help me solve this problem?
