Question glXChannelRectSyncSGIX

I've been trying to compile glut-3.7.1 on a RH9 box with a QuadroFX 1000 card. I'm getting some
unresolved symbol errors, e.g. for glXChannelRectSyncSGIX and several other functions
that have to do with video resizing. I read in the GLUT FAQ that at some point there was a
similar problem on the SGI O2's due to an incorrectly advertised video resizing capability
by the graphics card. Could this be the case here as well and what's the best way to deal with this?

Compilation errors wouldn't be dependent on what the hardware is advertising, regardless of what kind of hardware (SGI vs. Intel vs. anybody else) it was.

I don't know if this is the same problem as these threads, but an issue (superficially, at least) similar to this has been discussed many times before. For example:




Not entirely sure if these are exactly what you're getting, because you're apparently compiling glut, but perhaps that second link would be of use. It's how I compile glut whenever I need it (but I don't compile Mesa's GL or GLU libraries, because they'd overwrite XFree86's GLU and nVidia's GL).

Default it works!

BWKAZ, thanks for the links! Some of them were very useful.

Bottom line is that apparently RH9 and NV's 4363 drivers don't mix too well. I was able to get rid of
the compilation problems only after switching to another flavor of linux (gentoo). Which wasn't
such a bad move after all since I'm not particularly fond of RH anyway.
