Default nVidia libraries crash some OpenGL apps but not others


Problem: X starts (no problems whatsoever here), but *some* OpenGL applications crash on startup.

Hardware involved:
GeForce4 MX440
MSI KT3 Ultra2 motherboard, uses Via KT333 chipset

Relevant software versions:
% uname -smr
FreeBSD 4.7-20021204-STABLE i386

XFree86-libraries-4.2.1_1
XFree86-Server-4.2.1_3
XFree86-clients-4.2.1_1
Mesa-3.4.2_2
sdl-1.2.4_1

NVIDIA_FreeBSD-1.0-3203

The following games work using Mesa but crash using nVidia's libraries:
foobillard-1.8
race-0.5
gl-117-0.7 (crashes nastily)

However the following game works fine using either
xracer-0.94

And so do glxgears and testgl (one of the demos from SDL)

I installed XFree86-libraries first, then Mesa and finally nVidia's driver. The results of this setup follows:

% ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/*GL*

Are these the nVidia-supplied libraries?

% md5 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLcore.so.1
MD5 (/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1) = f83dd20d730614e93b64f508961c04fb
MD5 (/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLcore.so.1) = a9876ffd5c02d0b02bb5e754fcaa0cc4

% md5 /usr/src/NVIDIA_FreeBSD-1.0-3203/obj/libGL.so.1 /usr/src/NVIDIA_FreeBSD-1.0-3203/obj/libGLcore.so.1
MD5 (/usr/src/NVIDIA_FreeBSD-1.0-3203/obj/libGL.so.1) = f83dd20d730614e93b64f508961c04fb
MD5 (/usr/src/NVIDIA_FreeBSD-1.0-3203/obj/libGLcore.so.1) = a9876ffd5c02d0b02bb5e754fcaa0cc4

Yes, they are.

Now let's try to run an application.

Using race, which works perfectly using Mesa, as an example:

% ldd /usr/local/bin/race
/usr/local/bin/race:
libGL.so.1 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 (0x2806b000)

libncurses.so.5 => /usr/lib/libncurses.so.5 (0x288e0000)

Which shows that it is trying to use nVidia's libraries, isn't it?

However,

% /usr/local/bin/race

Something similar occurs with foobillard:

% /usr/local/bin/foobillard
... some irrelevant output removed ...

zsh: segmentation fault foobillard

But, interestingly, xracer works fine. Is it using the same libraries?

% ldd /usr/local/bin/xracer
/usr/local/bin/xracer:

libXThrStub.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXThrStub.so.6 (0x2876c000)

Yes, it is.

As a final attempt, let's run testgl

% /usr/local/share/examples/SDL11/testgl
Screen BPP: 32

And it runs fine. Which libraries is it using?

% ldd /usr/local/share/examples/SDL11/testgl

libncurses.so.5 => /usr/lib/libncurses.so.5 (0x286bb000)

So, what's going on here?

Hey,

I have exactly the same problem. I used to play foobillard just fine under SuSE 8.1, but after installing SuSE 8.2 with the newest Nvidia drivers, I am also getting SDL Parachute Deployed messages.

Any ideas about how to solve this problem?

Thanks.

Are you sure you've got the correct libGL libraries installed, and they're being pulled by your app?

Yes, I've checked with ldd, and this gives:

No problems occur in /var/log/XFree86.0.log.

Is this enough information, or do you need something else?

I'm running redhat 9. My libraries are set up correctly and i didn't have a problem running foobillard with redhat 8.0. Then again i was using older versions of the drivers.

This might also be an SDL issue. I'll check it out.

This might also be an SDL issue. I'll check it out.
Any ideas yet?

Default Foobillard 2.6
