Re: RH Linux 7.x and VisAD/Java3D

Been there, done that. I have a NVIDIA TNT2 card on my RedHat 7.2 box at
home. I'm using the latest Java3D (1.3beta1) from Blackdown. I don't
recall exactly what I did but I think it only involved installing the
latest XFree86 4.x and the latest nvidia driver. It works now with
accelerated 3D. Let me know if you continue to have problems and I'll
look into the details.

Good Luck,
Doug
