It looks like the above users weren't trying to compile the libLVMesa.so.4 file--they were just replacing the other version. Did you try just swapping these files out?
If not, give that a try. If there's still an issue I'll try it out myself and let you know.
I had a similar problem....I couldn't use the test panel on a Linux box (Fedora Core 10) without LabView installed. Here's what works:
-Install NI-DAQmx (I used 8.0.1)...this requires gcc, kernel-devel, make, and possibly other packages as well
-Download the Mesa graphics library (open source): ftp://ftp.ni.com/support/misc/thirdparty/mesa-src/
-Extract the library, then extract the file inside called mesa30lv.zip
tar -xz mesa4.tar.gz ./mesa/
unzip mesa30lv.zip ./some_path/
-In the directory you extracted mesa30lv.zip to, you will need to then run the make file to compile them into share objects [libraries]:
-Then, copy the shared object file to where the test panel application expects to find the library:
cp libLVMesaGL.so.3.0 /usr/local/lib/linux/libOSMesa.so.4
Voila, the test panel app works like a champ now : )
