Help: I’ve finally upgraded from Mandrake 7.1 to 7.2. (The problem with stable development platforms )
I had a V3 3000 but I was not happy with the performance (with UT) so I swapped it for a spare TNT2 M64 just to see, and downloaded the kernel-…src.rpm and the GLX packages.
To be on the save side I edited the kernel driver source according to the M64_USERS_README, and installed the packages, edited the XF86Config-4 file and X started perfectly. However…
Whenever I run an OpenGl program (eg gears), it runs for about one second, then locks up the entire system. (cannot even rlogin or telnet to the system to kill the program or the X server.)
Is this due to floating GL libs?
Or an incompatible libGLU?
As an aside, is it possible to use Mesa headers to compile .o’s that will link to the nvidia drivers?
Or would the SGI sample GL code be better.
And would the SGI sample GLU be a suitable replacement for the libGLU already on the system.
So many questions… Thanks for any help.
