Re: ATI 3D acceleleration and dpkg-divert
However, I have some problem with OpenGL. Celestia is crashing with the
error: "Unable to resolve GL/GLX symbols - please check your GL library
installation." and the tuxracer is not well running. When racing I can
see a lot of "flashing triangles".
Is there some files I can check to see if OpenGL is well installed?
Anyway, I will try now this method
to see if it resolves my OpenGL problem.
Maybe this helps:
ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 2004-09-19 20:47
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.1.2
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 798590 2004-07-16 17:23 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2004-09-18 23:20
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1 -> libGLU.so.1.3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 500480 2004-09-06 13:16 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1.3
Try finding out where those libGL*.a files on your system come from
with dpkg -S <filename>. Maybe that is causing problems. I only have
these and everything works fine (as far as I can tell, haven't
actually tried tuxracer yet). Maybe it's even in the ATI FAQ?
ok, I obtain the following from my home directory:
# dpkg -S /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.a
# dpkg -S /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1
# dpkg -S /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
diversion by fglrx from: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
diversion by fglrx to: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2.distrib
fglrx, xlibmesa-gl: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
So the *.a libraries come from the xlibmesa-gl-dev package, whereas the
libGL.so.1.2 is diverted. What I could test is to rename them
temporarely and see if I can run tuxracer (after googling I could not
find any description of my problem) and celestia.
From the diversion of the libGL.so.1.2 library, I can see the
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2.distrib file but cannot find it? is it a
I will let you know as soon as I can test
