I did a new install of fedora 3, all the LG3D stuff, and when I attempted to run the -dev demo, it caused a reboot of fedora. Any hints on where to start looking?

Thx

Tad

Actually, to be more precise, I do the ./lg3d-dev and I do get a frame with "Center" as the title. Then after a few seconds, I don't actually reboot Fedora - I get the login prompt again. So X is definitely not happy.

I neglected to mention in my first post that I am running Fedora 3 as a guest OS under Windows host VMWare 4.5.2. VMWare has worked so well up to now that it didn't occur to me that this might be the problem, but perhaps it is.

Can you run any 3D app under VMWare ? Try running glxgears and then progress to Java3D's HelloUniverse.

Take a look at a log files. I don't know where Linux logs errors, but definitely check out these two:

/var/log/Xorg.0.log
/var/tmp/lgserver.log

I got these log files from another topic, so the files may not be in the same directories.

The first log didn't have anything that looked out of the ordinary, but at the end of the lgserver.log I see:

Nov 21, 2004 1:44:47 PM org.jdesktop.lg3d.displayserver.DisplayServerControl initializeSceneManager
INFO: Initialising Scene Manager org.jdesktop.lg3dlscenemanager.glassy.GlassySceneManager

But I run LG3D on my Fedora Core 3 and this run OK. What are you doing to run it ?

I just did all the install steps as per the Getting started doc, then executed ./lg3d-dev from the appropriate place. Boom.
