Hi.
I am a newbie to opengl and have made a simple program in it. The problem is that though the program works fine on my system, it doesn't run at my Lab system. I am using windows at both the places.
The system at my lab reports:
out of video Memory

well i don't exactly remember the message, but its something like this. But I am simply rendering a glut teapot and the system there is equivalent in performance to mine, except that it doesn't have a graphics accelerator.
Can someone please help me with the problem?
Thanks

So what kind of video hardware does your computer have (the one with the problem) ?

Normal OpenGl rendering does not use any memory from the videocard except for the framebuffer, so unless you try to create a giant framebuffer there should not be a problem unless you have displaylists or something like that.
