Dear all,

I am trying to run vmd on my mac mini which is running ubuntu feisty fawn
7.04. The mac mini is a dual core 2.GHz with 1GB RAM. Please can anyone let
me know if they have successfully installed and run vmd on a similar system?

I can run vmd in text mode but not in graphical mode. The console appears on
startup and then disappears within seconds.

I am using the i810 video driver.

If anyone has got vmd working on such a system I would appreciate it if they
would let me know, which drivers etc they are using.

Many thanks in advance,
