Test for OpenGL Support

This guide is for Linuxes only. To check if your system is configured for OpenGL correctly, open a console, make sure you are not logged in as root and execute the command:

user@ubuntu:~> glxinfo | grep render

This should produce something like this:

direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9500 Pro Generic

The OpenGL renderer string will probably look different at your computer, don't panic.

If its written direct rendering: No at your computer, you will have to go over your system configuration again and and look for some good tutorials online to configure it. We can't give you good support, since are not system specialists ourselves. Perhaps there is some help in the installation guide.
