Re: NVidia and texture maps

Hello Don,

my Linux box runs XFree86 4.2.0-8 with an NVidia
GeForce 2, and experiences problems when using
Blackdown's Java 3D 1.3.

Things such as filled land-masses [ie. Gridded2DSets
passed to DelaunayCustom.fill()] are not displayed,
and flash briefly onto the screen as the display is

Blackdown's Java 3D 1.2.1 works fine, except for
offscreen rendering, which almost causes the machine
to lock-up.

Hope this helps,
