  • Help - X11 driver not configured for OpenGL

    Hello,
    I installed my fglrx drivers (catalyst 8.6) and fglrx confirmes that it should work.

    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI MOBILITY RADEON X600
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.7659 Release
    Direct rendering ist working, too.

    Desktop Effects work quite well.

    But if I start an OpenGL Game (like Spring), I get the message mentioned in the topic.

    What could be wrong and what could I do?

    I should add, that I upgraded from 7.10 before. Perhaps the xorg.conf is corrupted?

    Thanks a lot in advance!
    Regards
    Caradhras

    How are you starting the game? Does it start properly if you launch it from a terminal?

      No it does not!

      When I launch ExtremeTuxRacer for example by typing etracer into terminal, I get the same error...

        Do you get the error in the terminal or in a separate window? Are you running compiz at the time?

          Desktop Effects are off.
          I get the error in the terminal.

            That's very odd. Do other opengl games give the same error? Have you encountered any that do work?

                  Well, unfortunately, I don't know what's going on. What's the output of 'ldd /usr/bin/spring' ?

                    ldd /usr/bin/spring
                    ldd: /usr/bin/spring: No such file or directory
                    It must be installed somewhere else.

                    But the problem must be something with the X server or OpenGL.
                    So would could I do beside dpkg reconfigure xserver?
