I have been trying to test PDP on os 10.4.9 but it seems as though  
pdp_glx does not work so I cant create a window to view pdp_noise and  
try any of the other thing in it.  Also quicktime support is still  
not working but thanks for all your hard work. This would be a great  
thing to get working for the mac platform.
