Hello everyone,

I have made a couple clean ups for the infamous glXGetConfig problem which
is now a qglXGetConfig routine..

Can some linux/intel people test it? The complete source package is at:

I'd like some non-reg testing before I commit this to CVS..

I had some strange problems trying to run it on my Redhat 7.3 box but it
ran very fine on my RH7.2 box (both boxes with latest redhat patches,
2.4.18-17.7x kernel, etc..). On my new RH7.3 box, q3 and tribes2 ran fine
but with q2, I got:
------- sound initialization -------
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
Received signal 11, exiting...

Can someone with an non-NVidia card test this? I can confirm it works OK
(not better nor worse than current CVS, that is. :) ) under Linux/x86 +
NVidia and Solaris/Sparc.. Now glXGetConfig is autodetected from

Thanks for reading!

PS: Don't expect anything great it's just about 10 lines of diff for both
Linux and Solaris with CVS...
