GLX problem in Ubuntu 8.10 32-bit


Recommended Posts

I downloaded latest Houdini for 32-bit linux to run in apprentice mode, but have the following problem:

/opt/hfs9.5.241$ houdini

/opt/hfs9.5.241$ Warning: OpenGL shader extensions not available.

This is a limitation of your video card

or driver, and will prevent Houdini from

using GLSL shaders.


environment variable to zero to avoid

attempts to use this extension.

ERROR: could not obtain GLX visual!

Most likely cause is a lack of 3D acceleration. Check your configuration.

so splashscreen arrives and then disappears. I tried with HOUDINI_OGL_ENABLE_SHADERS=0, but got rid of warning only. There is not very good graphics in my machine (Intel Corporation 82915G Integrated Graphics Controller) , but it has direct rendering:

$ glxinfo

name of display: :0.0

display: :0 screen: 0

direct rendering: Yes

server glx vendor string: SGI

server glx version string: 1.2


3 GLX Visuals

visual x bf lv rg d st colorbuffer ax dp st accumbuffer ms cav

0x6b 32 tc 0 32 0 r . . 8 8 8 8 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 None

I tried both with compiz turned off and on, the result is the same. Another funny thing: I tried to run Houdini (9.5) from remote machine (via ssh -Y) and it runs! But swears hard about DRM absence and lots of BadMatch X11 errors.

Any ideas?
