It sounds as though your OpenGL implementation isn't behaving
correctly. Try running 'glxinfo' from a terminal window (attached to
your X server) and see what it reports in the version string--it
sounds as it's returning a null pointer instead of a character string.

Also make sure the program is linking to a correct version of OpenGL
if you have several on your system. Try 'ldd myprogram' and see if the
correct library is referenced.

HTH, Andreas

My other car is a cons.
