Hi all,

i've installed OpenFOAM correctly and everything goes fine (calculating, using foamX etc...) exception done for paraFOAM.
When I try to open a mesh file for example

paraFoam /home/Robbo/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/tutorials/cavitatingFoam/ nozzle2D


paraFoam /home/Robbo/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/tutorials/icoFoam cavity

it appears the splash screen of paraFOAM, the program starts but when it loads the mesh file the screen become full o strange stripes... It's surely a problem with my graphics card.

I've found the same problem either with my desktop pc and my laptop. Both are equipped with Fedora 8, x_86_64 processor and ATI graphics card.

Any ideas about what can I do?
