3D accelerator issues

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I am having problems with the graphics pre-processor in Salome-Meca-2011.1 and have found that the problem lies with the 3D accelerator in Guest Additions (v4.0.6). This program is part of a finite element program. The main window where one would work on a model disconnects from the program and the program freezes up. The error or warning message that shows up in the terminal window is: OpenGL Warning: No pincher, please call crStateSetCurrentPointers() in your SPU. There have been other posts where folks working with graphics programs such as AutoCad have experienced similar problems. The only solution at this point appears to be to deselect the 3D accelerator box in Display in the VBox Manager. I have the following hardware and software in use when running this program: AMD Turion II Dual-core Mobile M500 (1 core used under VirtualBox)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 graphics card, v8.632.1.2000 driver (128MB memory used under VirtualBox and 3D acceleration presently disabled)
4GB Memory (1600MB memory used under VirtualBox)
Windows 7 professional, 64bit.
Oracle VirtualBox, v4.0.6, 64bit
Linux Ubuntu 10.10, 64bit
Salome-Meca 2011.2 and Code-Aster STA10.3, uses Salome 5.1.5
Hope this helps with finding a solution. Thanks.
