Flightgear crashes (the program, not the pilot)
Flightgear crashes on startup on my system. I'm running
2.6.16-2-amd64-k8-smp generic kernel. My system:
An Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard with AMD Athlon 4800 dual
core cpu, with 4 MB of Corsair TwinX ram sticks. I have an older
GeForce4 MX 420 graphics board with 64 MB ram. I have updated my bios
to version 1303.
I'm running Debian unstable, with latest version of Flightgear and
all required packages. I'm NOT running nvidia drivers because
they cause my system to hang. I'm also running the VESA driver,
for the same reason. I've attached the error message that Flightgear
generates on startup. Is this error indicative of the video driver I'm
Thanks for any help.
