I’ve spent the last day or so trying to get blender working in my fresh install of slackware, but I keep getting the same result: After entering Edit Mode, or playing with menus, X locks up completely, and I’m forced to hard reboot. I seem to be able to move around nicely in Object Mode.
Also, none of the menus or buttons have any icons attached to them. I can make do with them missing on the menus, but not having the icons on buttons like vertex/edge/face select is rough.
Here’s a screenshot: http://coffeebot.net/files/screencaps/blender.jpg
My stderr, after running less than a minute has almost 900 lines of the following:
FGLTexMgr: open of shared memory object failed (Function not implemented) __FGLTexMgrCreateObject: __FGLTexMgrSHMmalloc failed!!!
Somehow, I’m guessing that all of this is related. I’ve tried using the 2.4 and 2.7 pre-compiled versions, as well as compiling the 2.7 source. I haven’t tried CVS yet. All three yield the same issues and error.
I’ve used blender for a while now, in Fedora 4, and it’s never acted like this before. Am I missing a dependency somewhere?
Slackware Linux 10.2
Kernel version 2.4.31
512 MB RAM
ATI Radeon 9600 Mobility (64MB)
