Hi,

Thanks for the tip. However, I can't see how to solve the problem. I have a NVidia Gforce6600 video card, with the nvidia driver installed (1.0-8774). In fact, when I launch PyMOL it seems to detect everithing OK except from the freeGLUT problem. I attach the complete message from PyMOL and my xorg.conf file, any ideas where the problem can be??
I am used v99-rc6 pre-compiled version on a FC5-x86_64 distribution.
# pymol
freeglut (/home/hteran/tmp/programs/pymol/pymol.exe): Unable to create direct context rendering for window 'PyMOL Viewer'
This may hurt performance.

Hugo,

I believe Donnie is mistaken:  PyMOL runs just fine with FreeGLUT 2.4.0
(don't know about all 2.4.x though).  Lack of an ability to create a direct
rendering context is most likely a problem with your graphics driver, X11
configuration, pixel depth, or with the interaction between FreeGLUT and
your graphics driver.  

Cheers,

Same problem with freeglut2.2.0
Isn't it strange that pymol + freeglut2.4 is NOT compatible, 
when it is specifically said in pymol distribution that one 
of the dependences is freeglut2.4????

Thanks,
Hugo

	freeglut-2.4 + pymol = broken. Try glut instead, or 
perhaps freeglut-2.2
	or freeglut CVS.
