You Have to do OpenGL calls where in the Processes that has the OpenGL
context  which in OSG is the Draw Processes, so you have to do anything with
OpenGL in Draw Call callback


You cannot do OpenGL calls in the App process as your doing below ( UNLESS
you have OSG in Single Thread MODE )

i had similar problem, the graphic context was no longer current/ available.

if you need the extensions: have a look at osg::GL2Extensions class or
osg::GLExtensions class, 
work around: custom drawable object, in the drawimplementation method add
the glGetString,..

Running latest version of OSG in SVN, calling glGetString(...) from
main render loop (single threaded osgViewer). Like this:

 while(viewer.done() == false)

   char* extensions = (char*)glGetString(GL_EXTENSIONS);

extensions is always NULL. Am I doing something wrong here? Could
someone else test this?
