    I can confirm this, similar config:

    Linux 2.6.34-gentoo-r12 #4 SMP PREEMPT
    glibc 2.11.2-r3
    gcc version 4.4.4 (Gentoo 4.4.4-r2 p1.2, pie-0.4.5)
    nvidia-drivers 195.36.31
    xorg-x11 7.4-r1

    I forgot:

    wings 1.3.1
    erlang 14.2
    esdl 1.0.1

    Seems like a graphics driver issue.
    Have you tried the Mesa drivers?

    No, what purpose what this serve, Mesa drivers are not hardware-accelerated.

    Yes, I agree this is likely related to drivers. But it shows on all nVidia driver versions I tried lately and these same drivers work fine with Houdini, Maya and Nuke (and my KDE's compositing effects) which all make extensive use of OpenGl.

    Nah, I'm on a source distro (gentoo). My Erlang and ESDL are built from source, 64 bit. My nVidia drivers are 64 bit.
    In fact, I just checked, I don;t have a single 32 bit executable or library on this entire box yet the problem persists. :)

    Yes, I have similar config as well. Using 64-bit Erlang/ESDL causes these problems, NOT the 32-bit ones. Wings32 binary release comes with 32-bit version of Erlang and it works just fine in my Gentoo box via emulation.

    64 bit could be the cause.
    Wings was never specifically tested on a 64 bit machine mainly because erlang has no 64bit Windows release. Until now, it was assumed that wings would simply work if compiled on a linux 64 box, but there may be something preventing the build from displaying correctly.

    Okay, we've tested on Arch 64
    The build worked using the following, all 64bit:

    erlang 14b
    esdl 1.0.1
    nvidia driver 260.19.12
    X11 7.5

    so maybe try a driver and X11 update to see if that works. But it is not to do with the 64 bit architecture at least.
