I am getting an exception when I try running the gears demo.
glXMakeCurrent fails in X11GLContext function.

I am running RedHat Linux 9.0
java SDK version 1.4
July 17 download of jogl

If I run a non-java (C) glX demo that calls
glXMakeCurrent, it runs fine.

But, when I try running the gears demo, I get the following:
(First instance of error)
guitunes % java Gears X11GLContext
CANVAS GL IS: net.java.games.jogl.impl.x11.X11GLImpl
CANVAS GLU IS: net.java.games.jogl.impl.GLUImpl
net.java.games.jogl.GLException: Error making context current
        at net.java.games.jogl.impl.GLContext.invokeGL(GLContext.java:162)
        at net.java.games.jogl.GLCanvas.displayImpl(GLCanvas.java:196)

        at net.java.games.jogl.Animator$1.run(Animator.java:104)
        at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:534)

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry for not commenting on this bug earlier. Many bug fixes and workarounds for
driver instability problems have been made since the initial release of JOGL,
and I haven't seen a problem like this on any machine we've tested on. Please
try with the current beta (1.1 b07) and the following one (1.1 b08) and file a
new bug if problems persist.
