    Moving from support request tracker to the bug report tracker.

    I'm unable to reproduce this on 10.4 -- what version of BRL-CAD is being used? If you really were using 7.6, then you have to upgrade as that is really ancient. Please recheck your version (run /usr/brlcad/bin/binfo if you don't know). If you compiled from source, try adding the --without-opengl flag to configure.

    binfo returns 7.6.6...but that's the version the brlcad site downloads for mac. I just saw the sourceforge 7.12 version. I'll try that real quick...

    mged from 7.12.2 loads OK; note that the path after upgrade is not /usr/brlcad/bin, but /usr/brlcad/rel-7.12.2/bin/.

    Thanks!

    Glad to hear that it works. The versioned path is intentional so that users may keep multiple versions independently installed. The usual practice is to create symbolic links in /usr/brlcad for bin, share, lib, include, and man subdirectories that point to a corresponding "default" version to use. Some versions of our installer install those symbolic links for you but since you had such an old version installed, it couldn't make the links because of the old directories in the way (or it happened to be a version that didn't install the links by default). Please let me know if you run into any other problems! -- Sean
