help: bad request to X server while rendering gluNurbsSurface

Post by Madhuri SET » Sat, 08 Jul 1995 04:00:00

I'm trying to render a gluNurbsSurface (with texture mapped on ).
I gluLookAt it from different viewing angles;
it works fine from less oblique angles, but at one particular oblique angle
the whole thing crashes and I get the following error message:

X Error of failed request:  BadRequest
(invalid request code or no such operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  0 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  54
  Current serial number in output stream:  53

1) Can someone help me trap this message?
   I'm using the aux/tk library to do all the windowing.

   I've used the glGetError function and I get "no error".
   but I don't know whether I'm using the function in the right place -
   I've tried calling it in "display", both immediately before and
   immediately after the gluBeginSurface/gluEndSurface pair.

2) I'm also having trouble using the gluNurbCallBack routine.
   How should I specify the fn parameter?


1. gluNurbsSurface not rendering nearly flat surfaces

I'm on Windows2000 using the libraries supplied by Microsoft.

I'm having a problem with some surfaces not rendering with
gluNurbsSurface. All of the surfaces showing this problem are nearly
flat and untrimmed. No error is produced; they just don't draw. If I
reduce the number of control points I can get them to draw, so
apparently too much definition is a problem.

I'm also having a problem with some surfaces producing a "knot
multiplicity greater than order of spline" error which I asked about in
a previous post (see "NURBS Error from gluNurbsSurface (knot
multiplicity)" from June 3). I googled through the archives for this
newsgroup and didn't find anyone else mentioning either of these
problems. I find it hard to believe I'm the only one. I'm starting to
get a pursecution complex. Most other surfaces render fine, so I don't
think I'm doing anything grossly wrong. Are these known problems?

If anyone is interested in trying to render with my data I can post data
for one of the No-Render-But-No-Error surfaces. The smallest is 4x12
control points. However, the Knot-Multiplicity-Error surfaces are far
too large to post here, but I might be able to arrange a download
location from our Web site. Let me know.

Thanks much,
