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").
