    5644This is a problem caused by old versions of the Mesa 3D library (the version that comes with !RedHat 6.2 for example). Go to the Mesa Homepage, download and install a newer version.

    59 '''3. LeoCAD crashes every time I try to save a picture.'''
    60 
    61 This is a bug in the nVidia X11 drivers, I've contacted them but they haven't fixed it yet. If you have Mesa 3D installed you can run LeoCAD with "leocad --libgl /path/to/libMesaGL.so" to save pictures.

    63 '''4. XYZ Feature does not work or match the documentation.'''
    64 
    65 LeoCAD is actively developed on Windows at present, and some features are not translated to Linux as often, or at all when they are developed for Windows. If you have Linux coding skills, we could definately do with the help.
