#156 glutEnterGameMode causes X to hang

moderate (59)

OS: Linux Mint 11
X Server: X.Org Server 1.10.1

Calling glutEnterGameMode with any mode string does not change the screen resolution and causes X to become unresponsive until restarted.

    I was somewhat mistaken. X does not become unresponsive, and does not require restarting. However, the problem with glutEnterGameMode not changing the screen resolution still remains.

    I might have the same problem, I get the error
    freeglut (foo): unable to parse game mode string `width>=640'
    Maybe am have misunderstood the syntax for glutGameModeString? Choosing a gamemodestring of the compact format
    "works" but doesn't give me a fullscreen mode, instead a small window without border in the left upper-most part of my screen. I run ubuntu 11.04.
