How do I deal with the following error when launching Maestro on 64-bit Fedora Linux?

QGLContext::makeCurrent(): Cannot make invalid context current.
WARNING This display cannot support the graphics settings needed by
WARNING Maestro. Please try a different graphics card or see if
WARNING your graphics card can be reconfigured Maestro: Error initializing Maestro
Maestro: ** abnormal termination **

First try launching Maestro in software OpenGL mode with the -SGL option:


The only way to get proper hardware-accelerated performance is to install the 32-bit OpenGL on your 64-bit machine. Graphics drivers distributed for 64-bit Fedora 12 (e.g., via yum) do not include them by default. The best way to remedy this is to install the latest binary driver for your video card from the manufacturer. During the installation, the installer will ask you if you also want to install 32-bit OpenGL libraries: you should select "Yes".
