I’m experiencing serious troubles to fins a solution for the OpenGL issues with a nVidia graphic card in Ubuntu Dapper Drake. A RIVA TNT2/TNT2 Pro with 32 MB Memory, produced-sold by Canopus.
Running Blender from terminal, shows as follows:
Using Python version 2.4
Xlib: extension “GLX” missing on display “:0.0”.
ERROR: Unable to open Blender window
During the pasts 36 hours aprox. I’m trying to solve trough solutions finded browsing the web. Solutions suggested, while similar, appears contradictory and inconsistent, when by the “try and if not try other” method.
I’m a newbye in linux but not a complete noob, so i’ve tried something more advanced than simply reinstall the system or reswitch to windows, i hope u understand. But now i’m a little frustrated. I will research still more, but if somebody has the same problem, at least i will not feel so lonely ;-).
If i have the time, i will post some links and documentation.
