  • Badalloc with SNA and xserver-xorg-intel

    Hi,

    the last version of your intel PPA really boost the performances but give me this error in glxinfo

    X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
    Serial number of failed request: 22
    Current serial number in output stream: 25

    Thus some app do not works (ie. Google-Earth Glxgears)

    My video card is:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)

    My box:
    Xubuntu 12.04 i386 NON-PAE
    Tried with both with official kernel 3.2.0-33-generic and kernel compiled by me 3.6.3-vanilla

      I found a workaround to Badalloc issue on 3d accell; I put inside .bashrc file this string:
      Code:
      export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1
      Save and reboot

      Now everything "seems" to work correctly

        Hi again,
        found a workaround; putting this value:
        Code:
        export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1
        on .bashrc file, saving and reboot, seems that fix the issue.

        • You are right, there was a package left over after purging xorg-edgers, I had to downgrade it manually and all is fine now.

          • Yu may want to try the packages I just uploaded, if it still doesn't work you should file a bug with mesa as reported in the first post.

              The problem is still there; new packages without "export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1" string in .bashrc I get executing glxinfo:

              name of display: :0.0
              X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)

              Serial number of failed request: 22
              Current serial number in output stream: 25

              I try to fill the bug in Mesa

              thx

                You may also want to try to purge the PPA (see Revert to original drivers at https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers/ this should always be done before upgrading to a newer Ubuntu) and reinstall it.

                    Hi oibaf,
                    no the last version, at least the one available yesterday, crash my box (Xubuntu 12.04); the panel of Xfce was missing, the cursor was missing and the desktop was strangely "opaque"; I've purged your PPA and reverted intel driver with Ubuntu repos; at the moment I've installed these drivers https://launchpad.net/~glasen/+archive/intel-driver in order to be able to use SNA features (anyway even those works only with "export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1" entry in .bashrc on my box)

                    thx

                    • when you use Ubuntu to select the gallium/non-gallium drivers as default? I prefer to compile a snapshot on my own, but basically a nice idea. How do you build the 32 bit mesa libs for a 64 bit system? Since llvm is forced i could not build em...
