The GLwMDrawingArea widget is open source, so you can compile that yourself, you should be able to get the GLX extension from IBM, in fact I'm a bit shocked it's not already in there, what version of AIX is it?

7 and to be honest Vishnu, it's a pretty shite install. It's like some half assed attempt at loonix, I've half a mind to put AIX 5 on it (if I could find the disk in the loft that is).

So yeah, you def gots no glx extension then, sux to be at the whim of IBM but I can't imagine that extension isn't somewhere in the mass volume of installable AIX parts...
