   I would suggest that for an application like ParaView, you will probably get
   much better performance if you use the experimental hardware accelerated
   OpenGL -wgl mode, see [2] for details.


I tried this, but it did not work.  First I tried it in single-window
mode, and that gave an error in XWin.0.log that it wouldn't work with a
root window.  So then I said XWin -wgl -multiwindow, and in my
XWin.0.log I have the following error:

When I try to run glx programs they don't work, and glxinfo gives me
this error, regardless of whether I set LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT:

Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
