screen resolution problem


i’m just reading nehes tutorial and downloaded the linux demos.
i encountered a problem with my screen size.
when i start the demos i just get a small piece of the scene on my screen. after changing the resolution in the source files from 640x480 to 800x600 i get a bigger piece of the scene.
is there something wrong with the programm i run or are my opengl librarys misconfigured?


hey, i used to have this same problem with those tutorials. i think it has something to do with the program trying to go to fullscreen mode. once i took that out, it worked ok. i’m using the 3dfx Mesa driver, which automatically goes fullscreen on it’s own, so i don’t know if that applies in your case.

thx, now all looks well. i’m also using the 3dfx mesa driver and after uncommenting the glut functions that call the fullscreen mode everything looks nice now.
