OpenGL colour not able to render colour

I am trying to use openGL over tinyX.
My platform is arm v7. I have successfully compiled both tinyX and openGL for arm-v7.

Now I am trying to run some simple opengl applications over the ported tinyX.

The example that I am using right now is taken from
The example creates a simple glwindow using glut apis.
After that it creates a “Triagle” and “Rectangle” in that window.

When I run the same example on my x-86 based linux, I am able to see the proper output with colours of the background being black and the colours in the geometrical figures being as programmed.

But when I run the same example on my arm-v7 based linux, I get the geometry of the figure being properly drawn but without any colours.

successfully compiled … openGL for arm-v7

What GL source did you use ?
It is quite likely this is a bug of the GL source implementation you use.

i am using mesa implemention for OpenGL

o_O Unfortunately…
