GLX problem
1 Attachment(s)
I can no longer start mythfrontend or mythtv-setup.

mythfrontend says this whens starting up:
2010-05-30 11:56:42.448 Using the OpenGL painter
2010-05-30 11:56:42.472 Failed to create OpenGL painter. Check your OpenGL installation.
QGLContext::makeCurrent(): Cannot make invalid context current.
2010-05-30 11:56:42.472 OpenGL: Deleting OpenGL Resources
QGLContext::makeCurrent(): Cannot make invalid context current.

mythuser@PVR1:~$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

nvidia-settings says
Cannot query GLX Vendor.

I see some errors in xorg log that kernel driver did not load?

From synaptic I have completely removed all nvidia and reinstalled. I have deleted xorg.conf and rebooted trying to let Ubuntu 10.04 detect everything, same results.

I am using Nvidia drivers from avenard repository.

Re: GLX problem
If you're using Ubuntu, you should be using the drivers from the driver manger, not some third party repo. I suggest trying the approved, tested, drivers first.

Re: GLX problem
The nVidia module looks to load fine from /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

Problem looks to be here with myth in dmesg hence the segfault for whatever reason. Check around the myth site?


[  57.922725] mythfrontend.re[1674]: segfault at 35c ip 09ba4f96 sp bff1c38c error 4 in libGL.so.1.2[9ba3000+5000]
Why do you have


Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Videocard0"
    Driver        "nvidia"
    VendorName    "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "GeForce 6200"

when it's a GeForce 8400 GS.

Re: GLX problem
Your Linux distribution is picking up the wrong version of libGL from a nonstandard location:

ldd /usr/bin/glxinfo

        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0x00309000)
        libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/mesa/libGL.so.1 (0x00bd8000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libm.so.6 (0x00383000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x0095b000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libpthread.so.0 (0x004e5000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0x0054c000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x00110000)
        libXxf86vm.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXxf86vm.so.1 (0x00b1e000)
        libXdamage.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXdamage.so.1 (0x00813000)
        libXfixes.so.3 => /usr/lib/libXfixes.so.3 (0x00120000)
        libdrm.so.2 => /lib/libdrm.so.2 (0x006ba000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libdl.so.2 (0x00414000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00e61000)
        libxcb.so.1 => /usr/lib/libxcb.so.1 (0x00ea9000)
        librt.so.1 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/librt.so.1 (0x008fb000)
        libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0x00126000)
        libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6 (0x002df000)

You'll need to consult your distribution's documentation on how to fix the library search path.

Re: GLX problem
J. Avenard repo is the approved tried and tested ppa for those using Mythbuntu and there is nothing wrong at all with his files there.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 09:26 PM.
