Default Nvidia OpenGL borked since 180.22

Applications that happily ran on 172.88 now break with errors in the GL libraries of 180.22 onwards (tried up to 180.27).
Most notably the public preview of Bibble 5.

cheers

I am seeing exactly the same issue. have had to roll back to 1.73 to be able to use bibble 5. Ubuntu 8.10 and fedora core 10 both affected.

Thanks for reporting this. I reproduced the problem and filed a bug. You can work around this by disabling Bibble 5's custom malloc implementation:
Code:
cd /opt/bibble5pro/lib
mv libtcmalloc.so libtcmalloc.so.original
touch libtcmalloc-dummy.c
gcc -o libtcmalloc.so -shared libtcmalloc-dummy.c
This forces Bibble 5 to use the malloc implementation in glibc.

This solution is NOT approved neither supported by bibble5 team which tell that bibble5 reliability is bad if tcmalloc is not enabled.

I hope that a solution will be found that enable the use of tcmalloc with latest nvidia driver.

I am opengl app developer, and i don't want to have to choose between being able to develop opengl 3.0/ glsl 1.30 app, and run bibble5.

As Aaron said, a bug has been filed and will be investigated. The workaround is just that - a way for users to enable use of Bibble 5 with current NVIDIA graphics driver releases; it is not intended as a long-term solution.

Hi Aaron,

I tried what you proposed, but it is not working, bibble still does not start.

Thanks for your help,
