I am new to VTK and eager for your help.

I have successfully installed VTK on my machine:
Redhat 7.0
--with-mesa --with--with-shared

When I ran the demos in examplesCxx, I came across the "Segmentation
GDB told me  that
"#0  0x40ac46d0 in glXGetCurrentContext () from /usr/lib/libGL.so.1".
The error came from the file vtkMesaRenderWindow.cxx.

I've searched the maillist and got some suggestions ( Reinstall mesa,
back to redhat 6.2 etc.)
Because it will cost me nearly 1 hour to build vtk each time, I wish
some one can show the right way for me.
