    Yeah, I read up on that driver, and the issue is with the attachment of the color attachment point to the FBO. It's a fairly well known bug, I'm surprised they have not fixed it as of yet. The problem stems because while the driver claims support, it doesn't actually work, so instead of gracefully bypassing the code, it creates that mess you see.

    Do you compile the code from source? If so let me know, there is something you can comment out to get it to work. If it does work, I'll put something in SVN that will allow forcible disabling of the color FBO objects.

        300c:



        That's a common issue with a lot of 3D games and the classic mesa driver (that's why I don't use it anymore). Both are from xorg-edgers by the way.

        Here is AA 7.33 with the 300g driver:



        ... and the terminal output:

          If you can compile the source, I have something you can try.

          In r_shadowmaps.c, in the function void generateShadowFBO(), look for line 128 "//FBO for capturing stencil volumes".

          Just above that, place "return", and recompile. This should fix your problem. If you don't mind, could you report the bug to whoever is working on these drivers?

            Compiling is going to take forever on this machine . I may try it over the weekend.

              Strictly speaking yes, but:

              (a) the Gallium3D driver is approximately even with the classic driver on average and is already better in some respects,

              (b) for GPUs without vertex shader hardware (like the RS480) the Gallium3D driver can be much faster because it has a newer/shinier implementation of SW TCL,

              (c) essentially all of the developer focus is on the Gallium3D driver these days.

                So, any chance of having the Gallium driver as the default in the next release?

                  It's definitely being discussed, although I don't know how good the chances are.

                    It's late and I'm tired so I probably didn't do it right, but making the change to the r_shadowmaps.c file didn't seen to solve it.
                    Code:
                    execing default.cfg
                    bind <key> [command] : attach a command to a key

                      Hi guys

                      I have exactly the same problem with but G45. It seems to me that the check for that GL_EXT_framebuffer_blit extension is somehow busted. First it reports in the log "...using GL_EXT_framebuffer_blit" and then fails to load the actual function. Actually I commented out the
                      Code:
                      if(gl_state.hasFBOblit) {
                      		if(!qglBlitFramebufferEXT) {
                      			Com_Printf("qglBlitFramebufferEXT not found...\n");
                      			//no point in continuing on
                      			gl_state.hasFBOblit = false;
                      			return;
                      		}
                      	}
                      in r_shadowmaps.c and the game happily starts up...
