Question FlightGear - latest version that will work with OpenGL 1.4.

I have the following setup:

Slackware 14.0
xdriinfo ; glxinfo | grep -iE 'direct|opengl'
Screen 0: i915
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) G33 x86/MMX/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 8.0.4
 (II) Module intel: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
    compiled for 1.12.3, module version = 2.20.8
    Module class: X.Org Video Driver
    ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 12.0
FlightGear 2.8.0 from will not work, because it requires OpenGL 2.0.
OpenGL 2.0 or higher is required for FlightGear 2.0 and later.
So my question is: what is the latest version of FlightGear that will work with OpenGL 1.4? Will FlightGear 1.9.1 work with OpenGL 1.4?

Any other tips are appreciated.

The answers to my questions are: 1.9.1 and Yes.

I had to patch a few files and use a different version of OpenSceneGraph (v2.8.5 instead of v3.0.1).

Now I need to learn to fly again. The last time I flew was in the 80's with subLOGIC's Flight Simulator for the Apple II.
