# To subscribers of the xforms list from "Hans J. Johnson" <email@example.com> :
I had the same problem. I beleive that the incompatibility is with the
version of Mesa that is delivered with redhat 7.1. Here is my solution.
1) Uninstall Mesa from machine (need to use -nodeps to be able to remove
it without upgrading to a newer RPM)
rpm -e --nodeps Mesa Mesa-devel Mesa-demos
2) Download Mesa-3.5 from www.mesa3d.org
3) Compile Mesa
a) Fix compilation problem
cd xxxx/Mesa-3.5/si-glu/include; ln -s xxxx/Mesa-3.5/include/GL .
cd xxxx/Mesa-3.5/src/GGI/include; ln -s xxxx/Mesa-3.5/include/GL .
cd xxxx/Mesa-3.5/widgets-mesa/GGI/include; ln -s
b) ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-x
c) make ; make install
4) Relink executable to the new libraries
5) IT WORKS!! (Hopefully)
