On my system the following program gives some weird results:


#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <GL/glut.h>

float theta = 45.0f;
float phi = 45.0f;

void drawSphere(double radius) {
  GLUquadric *quad = gluNewQuadric();
  gluQuadricDrawStyle(quad, GLU_FILL);
  gluSphere(quad, radius, 20, 10);

void init() {
   glClearColor(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);


void drawFilledSphere() {
   // draw lines in front, black
   glPolygonMode(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_LINE);
   glColor3f(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

void drawWireframeSphere() {
   // draw filled red sphere
   glPolygonMode(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_FILL);
   glColor3f(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

void display()

      0.0f, 0.0f, 3.0f,
      0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f,
      0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);

   glRotatef(theta, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
   glRotatef(phi, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);

#ifndef BROKEN


void resize(int w, int h)

   glViewport(0, 0, w, h);

   gluPerspective(45.0f, 1.0f * w / h, 1.0f, 100.0f);


void keyboard(unsigned char key, int x, int y) {
  switch(key) {
  case 27 :
   exit(1); break;

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
   glutInit(&argc, argv);

   glutInitWindowPosition(50, 50);
   glutInitWindowSize(500, 500);

   glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_RGB | GLUT_DOUBLE);
#ifndef BROKEN
   glutCreateWindow("Not Broken");



   return 0;

When I compile up normally it shows what I expect: a small red sphere surrounded by a larger, black, wireframe sphere. When I compile with -DBROKEN all I see is a large black sphere.

I don't know if this is because I'm using OpenGL wrong (although the problem is also in the glviewer FOX toolkit test), or because my installation, or because of my graphics card drivers (r128). Has anyone else seen these sort of problems before?
