Hi PyMOLers,

I just downloaded and tried-out the new v0.95 -- very nice! (particularly the label-handling)...
Now I'm wondering -- has anyone seen the following OpenGL errors with this new version:
OpenGL-Error: Where? During Rendering: invalid operation
This occurs when literally *any* operation is performed in the PyMOL Viewer graphics window -- whether it's doing complicated mouse tricks or just typing a single character (one can type the identical text in the Tcl/Tk GUI window without any errors).  I'm running on a Red Hat 9 Linux box, having installed PyMOL via pymol-0.95-1.rh90.py22.i386.rpm...

Thanks for any info.,

support activites, we're hoping to secure some SBIR grant funding as well
project-specific monies from pharmaceutical companies.  The future looks
