Re: OpenGL problem

Dear André,

Hi Denis,

I did not mean to offend you, but I have written (as you suggested a year ago) to, and then Larry Hall suggested to use cygwin-apps. Maybe you didn't read the message because it was lost after the server problems.

No offense taken.

I've read both of your 2 messages to cygwin at and the one you sent to cygwin-apps at I replied to all of them, in their respective mailing list:

What Larry meant is that if you find a packaging error in the OpenGL package, that is, if the package does not respect the layout required for Cygwin's packages, you should report it to the cygwin-apps list. If you have any other sort of trouble with the OpenGL package, report it to the main cygwin list.

Now, I also apologize for writing to you directly, but although
I am subscribed to cygwin-apps, I didn't receive the message
to which I am now replying. I only found it on the web.
This is why I thought it better to reply directly to you.

This is really surprising. If you are subscribed to the list, you should receive all messages sent to it. If not, you should inquire with the list manager. If your email connection with Cygwin's lists is unreliable, I suggest that you add the following line to messages you send to the lists:

"Please CC your response to this message directly to my address."

I never reply directly to people sending messages to lists, unless they require it explicitely.

I have been subscribed to the cygwin list, and now instead
to the cygwin-apps list. Should I return to the main cygwin list?


I am confused...

If you can solve the problem, I would be very thankful, as I have
had it for a year. None of my complex programs using tessellation
seem to work on cygwin (and also apparently not on some other
Windows environment, from what my students tell me).
On the other hand, I have the feeling that I am the only one
on Earth needing such features, or somehow nobody is trying tessellation
with cygwin.


The "solution" to your problem was in my reply to your original message to the cygwin list:

Regarding tessallation and Cygwin, the tess.c sample program about which you wrote to me last year works reliably on Cygwin. Your new program doesn't, but as outlined in message msg00408, it is because of a programming error. Please try the suggestions in that message, and if you have other problems that are specific to OpenGL under Cygwin, write about it to the cygwin list.
