Summary0001734: ParaView will not build on Ubuntu GNOME 15.04
DescriptionI'm not sure if this happens on plain Ubuntu, but ParaView will not build from the 2.4.x repo on Ubuntu GNOME 15.04. I am getting this result:

[ 14%] Building CXX object VTK/Rendering/OpenGL/CMakeFiles/vtkRenderingOpenGL.dir/vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx.o

I had the same problem on recent Ubuntu releases. There is some discussion abouth this issue on the Internet and it is not completely clear if the issue is with system header files or with VTK. Anyway, I am currently using the following change to avoid the problem:

*** Ubuntu 14.10 and higher
    There is an issue in the GL libraries requiring a change to the
    vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx file in ParaView:
    Uncomment line 30


    This is required for both 32bit and 64bit.

I also needed this change to build on OpenSuSE Tumbleweed.

I am not sure if this changes can be applied for all OSs or if it should only be applied for systems which need it. If it is generally applicable I will make the change in the source-pack.
