This FAQ applies to: Any version.

PMV or ADT failed to start on Linux and you see the following error message "freeglut ERROR: Function called without first calling 'glutInit'"

There is a bug in freeglut-2.4.0-4 that causes this problem. Please replace freeglut with version 2.2.0-1. The following commands should do this.

wget http://jumpgate.homelinux.net/random/freeglut-fedora/freeglut-2.2.0-1.i386.rpm
wget http://jumpgate.homelinux.net/random/freeglut-fedora/freeglut-devel-2.2.0-1.i386.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps --force freeglut-2.2.0-1.i386.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps --force freeglut-devel-2.2.0-1.i386.rpm
