Linux - X starts for me, but OpenGL applications terminate immediately.


If X starts, but OpenGL causes problems, you most likely have a problem with other libraries in the way, or there are stale symlinks. See Appendix C for details.  Sometimes, all it takes is to rerun 'ldconfig'.

You should also check that the correct extensions are present; 'xdpyinfo' should show the "GLX" and "NV-GLX" extensions present. If these two extensions are not present, then there is most likely a problem with the glx module getting loaded or it is unable to implicitly load GLcore.  Check your X config file and make sure that you are loading glx (see "Editing Your X config File" above). If your X config file is correct, then check the X log file for warnings/errors pertaining to GLX.  Also check that all of the necessary symlinks are in place (refer to the article titled "Linux - Installed components").
