    Question OpenGL compatibility & Snow Leopard
    A bit over two years ago I created a screen saver applet which uses OpenGL (called Mani X). It currently runs under OS X 10.4 and 10.5, but not, I'm told, under Snow Leopard. I was planning to borrow or lease a newer Mac laptop for a few weeks and try a recompile under 10.6 to see if that would fix the problem. But I also understand that there have been some compatibility issues with OpenGL under Snow Leopard, and I'm wondering whether a future update to Snow Leopard may well fix the problem for me. If there is anyone here who can advise me, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks in advance for your kind help.
    In gratitude,
    Bodhi

    It may be due to it not being 64-bit. I found this thread somewhere else that discusses the solution; upgrade to 10.6 so you can compile a 64bit version too.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
