RP> Yes I had similar problem compiling RasMol for Caldera Open Linux with

RP> I solved it by changing the following lines in rasmol.c :

There's a patch for linux in http://dasher.wustl.edu/~reece/RasMol/.  I've
used it on i686-linux-2.0 and alpha-osf1-4.0 systems.  There's also a
patch for SpaceOrb support there.  SpaceOrbs are 6-dof joysticks that cost
about 80$.  See www.spaceorb.com.  Works great and blows dial boxes away.
