Hi Subbu,

I will keep it in mind. My focus now is on building openGL tutorial programs such as this: https://paroj.github.io/gltut/index.html
or this: https://www.linuxjournal.com/content/introduction-opengl-programming

the exercise is already giving me insight into the Squeak openGL and should be of use when I get to the FFI part.

Have you tried booting 32-bit Ubuntu from a live USB (4GB+) drive for 
your experiments?
