Actually the error was because the demos as well as my programs were linking to the glut library rather than freeglut's libglut. Everything works fine now.

Thanks for your help

Trying to run the demos I get the following error

freeglut (lt-lorenz): Unable to create direct context rendering for window 'Lorenz Attractor'

but the program does not crash and I do see stuff moving on the window.

Once again let me mention I have Fedora Core 4 and nvidia GeForce MX/MX 400 card.

Thanks for your help,
Murali.
