maya crashes; opengl not properly configured.
Hi there. I have a bit of a problem with my maya installation. It's very unstable, any thing I do results in maya crashing. To find out what's wrong I started maya from the command line to see what error message I get. Unfortuanatly the message is not very informative. Here it is :
Error: default temp directory /usr/tmp does not have write permissions.

/usr/aw/maya4.0/bin/maya.bin encountered a fatal error
Signal: 6 (Unknown Signal)

Don't pay much attantion to the first error message. It because i'm not running maya as root and thus /usr/tmp not being writable.
I googled on the message I got but I got notting.
But I found a logfile that was more helpfull. This is what I found in "mayaLog" in my home directory:
Maya Message Log starting Sunday, March 16, 2003
Error: Unable to get OpenGL visual with these attributes:
RGB, Single buffered
Error: OpenGL is not configured properly !!
As you see it say's opengl is not configured properly. I don't get that since every other app using opengl (quake 3, glxgears, ut 2003) all work as the supposed to.
I have a nVidia gforce 4 440 MX graphics adapter. I have installed 376 MB installed on my system which should be more then enough. I also have the newest nvidia drivers. If any one could help me I would be very greatfiull
Warning: Unable to get OpenGL visual with a depth buffer, trying without
The only time I've had maya crash is when I delete a particular nurbs circle from my file. If I try deleting it in the .ma file, then maya crashes as soon as I load it. Not sure if this is related or a separate problem.
