in reply to POGL on Ubuntu problem

How have you installed - Ubuntu package or through CPAN? It looks like you've compiled perl 5.10 locally to your home directory... does require that version of perl? Maybe you'll want to try upgrading Ubuntu to Intrepid, if so.

    I have installed Perl 5.10 from source to my home-dir and also have installed OpenGL from source (downloaded from CPAN).

    OpenGL is more or less just a wrapper around the OpenGL-calls (basically just some XS-code generated from the OpenGL-header files) - it should be irrelevant where Perl is installed or how it was installed...

      Same problem on amilo 2550 lap top, ubuntu 8.04, ati hd 2400 ... I have tried to install open source drivers given at but still no success...... Please let me know if there is something new on
        Read the INSTALL-file and try to compile it with FREEGLUT as interface, if you have freeglut installed. For me it works now.
