Hi all,

First time here.

I have a problem running my openGL programs with freeglut. I installed Fedora Core 4 on my PC and the downloaded and complied freeglut2.4 from source and when I attempt to run a freeglut program I get these two error messages

"Unable to create direct render context for <window-title> this might hurt performance"

"Unable to create cursor"

When I use single buffer mode the above errors occur but the window gets created and when I click on the window closes down. If I use double buffer mode then the rendering window pops up but it doesn't display anything and a part of the background window covered by my rendering window shows up.

Is this error due to improper driver for my graphics card ? I have a nvidia GeForce MX/MX 400 card.
