Description Sven Gothel 2010-03-24 07:47:25 CET

---- Reported by johnpreston 2005-02-05 21:12:32 ----

For ATI drivers the function gl.isExtensionAvailable("GL_ARB_pbuffer"); returns
false, even though pbuffers are available. Can a workaround be implemented to
check for say ATI as the vendor and return the correct value.

---- Additional Comments From kbr 2005-02-06 17:05:14 ----

Added a workaround in X11GLContext for bug in ATI's drivers where they report
only GLX 1.2 support, but actually do support pbuffers.
