Hi, I had the same problem with VMD 1.8.5 and 1.8.3 until I added the apple supplied comment to my .xinitrc file in my home directory. VMD works locally after restarting X windows. BUT!!! Importing another VMD session, say from a LINUX box, does not work even with this fix. vi .xinitrc ;;; then insert this line before the end . . . # snip defaults write com.apple.x11 enable_stereo -bool true # end snip # start the window manager exec quartz-wm Cheers, Joseph

hi - i downloaded this update for my intel imac and now it appears that i am unable to run VMD (http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/) (i run vmd_linux remotely on my mac from our lab cluster headnode). It just crashes immediately after opening, with a segmentation fault. When i use strace, i seem to have errors in with GLX (as one would expect!) eventhough I have done the "defaults" update command as recommended. Has anyone else had this or a similar problem?

This showed up as an update on my PowerMac, but not on my MacBook. I downloaded the installer for my MacBook, and it said the install was not needed. Both machines are running 10.4.8.

My guess is that the issues that it addresses only crop up when running X11 on PowerPC architecture. I know little, though, so this is just a theory.

Shows up on my iMac Core Duo. Perhaps you don't have X11 installed on your MacBook?

You can extract and then install the new version over your old X11 installation by using Pacifist. This is the method I used and had success with, after even a re-install of X11 from the Tiger Installer disc wasn't recognised by the updater.

I'm trying to install x11 on my iBook running Tiger. I keep getting a message in the installer when selecting a volume to install on. The message says "newer software exists, x11 will not install". Any suggestions?

I think it's because X11 is already installed with Tiger

I was just wondering about that, since it doesnt show up in Spotlight. Puzzling, I find.

I just had the same issue on a brand spanking new G5 and found the xllsdk.pkg file through spotlight. I tried the install from there and it worked fine. Good luck.

You don't have to re-install. What I did was put in "Mac OSX Install Disc 1" and opened "Optional Installs". When you get to the page with the checkboxes, click the arrow next to Applications and check X11. Install.

okay - x11 does not necessarilly come installed and it can be used by any mac user. panther vs. darwin? heh? i use both and need X11, because Apple did not install it on my mini and I cannot do a clean install every time anything goes wrong. and you don't need to reinstall everything . . . j
