    Redhat 7.0 XMapWindow

    I have a simple program which should just open a window and display a wireSphere. I have newly installed RH 7.0 on a Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop - which as the ATI Mobiliy M4 video chip.

    Everything seems to run fine until the program gets to:
    XMapWindow(dpy, win);
    and here it just hangs. Is there some further configuration I need to do?

    Hi,

    Not sure what the problem is but to answer your question about whether it is a configuration problem or a programming bug then I'd suggest to download the NeHe tutorial 13 code http://nehe.gamedev.net/tutorials/lesson13.asp

    and compile this.

    The reason I say this is because I have a freshly installed RH7 and it works fine on mine (I have an ATI RAGE 128 card at work and a VOODOO 3 2000 at home and it works on both). Then you'll know if it is a configuration error or not.

    Download the code labelled:

    DOWNLOAD Linux/GLX Code For This Lesson. ( Conversion by Mihael Vrbanec )

    Which you will find at the bottom of the page (no real need to read the tutorial, unless you want to :-).

    You will need to edit the line glutInitDisplayMode (somewhere around line 233) and delete the GLUT_ALPHA option because this doesn't work.

    The makefile works for me - just type make lesson13 and it should work.

    Hope this is what you were after.
