None Geant4 can't find OpenGL after installation 

Forum: Installation and Configuration

After installing Geant4 on a linux machine(SL6.5), I found I can't run it in graphic model, while it worked well in text model. Therefore I posted my question to the GUI sub-forum. Having followed suggestions there, unfortunately I still can't fix the problem. And John suggested me to ask around here.

I copied my latest post in the GUI sub-forum in the following and the link is here :

Thanks !

I've followed your suggestion(s) : started to re-install the geant4 again, in new created directories. The problem unfortunately is still same as before [2].

There is one thing I probably should mention a little bit also, which is during the re-building the geant4, I used this command which closed external "EXPAT"(this technique has been searched from this forum also). I have no clue if this "close" play a negative role to the OPENGL / QT or not.

Besides, I have one question : does SL6.5 include OPENGL internally or not ? If not, maybe I need do download and install it ?

Thanks !

Best, Junhui
