Dear readers of this list,
I installed pymol version 0.98 onto a Ubuntu 6.06 system with working direct
rendering (Matrox driver for g450):
tobias@...:~$ glxinfo | grep render
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI G400 20050609
However, when I start pymol, it says the following:
freeglut (pymol): Unable to create direct context rendering for window 'PyMOL
PyMOL(TM) Molecular Graphics System, Version 0.98.
OpenGL-based graphics engine:
GL_VENDOR: Mesa project: http://www.mesa3d.org
GL_RENDERER: Mesa GLX Indirect
GL_VERSION: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.4.1)
Accordingly, performance of pymol is poor as far as rendering is concerned.
Did I miss a switch to enable direct rendering? Have other Ubuntu users
experienced the same difficulties?
tobias@...:~$ dpkg -s freeglut3
Status: install ok installed
