Scilab 5.0 graphics issues under Linux

Hi There,

first, the good news:

NVIDIA-binary
if you own a NVIDIA card and you have installed the proprietary, binary
only, drivers your soul is damned and you will go to the hell of the
GPL3 violator .... BUT Scilab 5.0 will run pretty good :)

and the bad news ....

ATI-binary
if you own a ATI card and you have installed the proprietary, binary
only, drivers your soul is damned, you will go to the hell of the GPL3
violator and Scilab 5.0 - probably - will hang at the first "plot2d" or
the graphics will looks incomplete (no text or string in the axes).

NO PANIC : we have an almost infinite reserve of caffeine and we are
working on these issues in order to fix it.

Simple reports of positive/negative cases are very welcome !

Please specify:
- Linux distribution
- kernel version ("uname -a")
- graphics card ("/sbin/lspci")
- graphics driver installed
- OpenGL support ("glxinfo")

Report from 'the other OS from Redmond' (Windows) are very welcome too
BUT, please note that this post is on a Linux specific issue.

Thanks in advance for your collaboration ....

Re: Scilab 5.0 graphics issues under Linux

Hello,

I can confirm the problem with the ATI driver. And maybe something more:
if I start scilab in the installation directory, scilab hang quite
brutally. If I start scilab in the build directory, I've just got a java
error message and scilab doesn't hang.
