Hi.

Well, I don't know really what you wan't, but I remember pain with
graphics and computers. :-)

I see the same error (X Error of failed request....) when I get a
kernel update to my CentOS comp. That screws up my NVIDIA driver
installation, pymol fails, and I have to reinstall the driver
package.

Nope, not needed. I had not updated the system before the pymol package was installed - it did come as a package from a standard repository.


The term "LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1", is controlling something with
which method draws the window. By OpenGL or by the mesa driver.
(Something like that). The OpenGL is super fast, and mesa driver is
slow.

Yeah, it appears to definitely be freeglut. In googling, I found several references to a variable or function name change.

If this can help, our execution script for pymol is:

[tlinnet@tomat pymolsvn]$ cat pymolMPEG.sh
#!/bin/bash if [ ! -f
$HOME/.local/share/applications/pymolsvn.desktop ]; then ln -s
/ourlab/software/pymolsvn/pymolsvn.desktop
$HOME/.local/share/applications/pymolsvn.desktop fi

*export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=no*

/usr/bin/python /ourlab/software/pymolsvn/modules/pymol/__init__.py

I'll look at that tomorrow. One thing I question: why are there asterisks around the export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT?
