Afternoon folks:

I'm getting a program crash when I try to run demo(rgl). The following error details result:

RGUI caused a stack fault in module NVOPENGL.DLL at 017f:695280f0. Registers:

EAX=00000002 CS=017f EIP=695280f0 EFLGS=00010246

Setup details are:

R version: 2.2.1
OS: win98se
RGL file name: rgl_0.66.zip

It appears to be gagging on an Nvidia opengl driver file, NVIDIA Compatible OpenGL ICD, version The video card is recorded as:

3DForce2 MX Series,NVIDIA GeForce2 MX (Ver ,9/20/2000)

I also tried this with version 2.3.1 of R with the same results.

Anyone have any thoughts or ideas on the subject? Has it occurred any place else? Is there a workaround or solution, or should I perhaps turf the package and forgo its abilities since it appears my system as it stands may not be able to support it?
