Question Re: Error running Wings3D on 7.10

Hi guys, just reinstalled 7.10 last night, and saw Wings 3D in synaptic, cool little program....but i get an error...not sure if this is a video card issue(I have a GeForce 4) or the way it was compiled, if so why is it in the Ubuntu repository, here's the error:

Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5.5 [source] [async-threads:0] [kernel-poll:false]

Reading preferences from: /home/muncher/.wings
Eshell V5.5.5 (abort with ^G)
1> Trying OpenGL modes
Actual: RGBA: 8 8 8 0 Depth: 24 Stencil: 8 Accum: 16 16 16 16
Failed to load perlin_noise_drv in /usr/lib/erlang/lib/wings-0.98.36/plugins/accel
Driver compiled with incorrect version of erl_driver.h
wpc_pnoise:init/0 bad return value: {'EXIT',
Failed to load wings_ogla_drv in /usr/lib/erlang/lib/wings-0.98.36/plugins/accel
Driver compiled with incorrect version of erl_driver.h

I have the restricted nvidia drivers up and running, my guess in a compiling error, any thought if this is fixable?

Kind regards

Don't know if this helps, but I installed Wings3D on my Gateway running 6.06, and it runs with no problem. It's possible that an error occurred during download- try removing and reinstalling the package. If that doesn't work, there may be a compatibility issue with the Legacy driver for your GeForce 4 GPU. Your readout does seem to indicate that possibility.
