I would like to use the LIC plugin because it is exactly what I am
looking for to plot skin friction lines on an aircraft skin. I tried it
on a Linux-x86_64 Workstation (HP xw4200) with Redhat 2.6.18-92.el5 and
an NVidia graphic card Quadro FX 1400 (Driver version 180.22).
Next week I will also try the Windows version on my personal computer
with an Nvidia GeForce card (don't know the version, the computer is at
home). What could help me is the pvsm state file that has been used to
produce the picture on the "PV 3.8 news" page with the oil flow on an
isosurface of the disk example. Is it available somewhere?
