Failed to create OpenGL context


I saw this message after installing Tecplot on a 64 bit Linux Red Hat machine. How do I fix it?


This message means that the computer does not support OpenGL. Please be sure your computers graphics card supports OpenGL and that you have the latest driver before you attempt to run Tecplot. If your computer does not support OpenGL to run Tecplot you can add the -mesa flag to the command you are using to start Tecplot. EX:

tecplot -mesa
