How reproducible:
Compile my code, then run it 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. please save the following code to test.cpp
#include <iostream>
#include <SDL.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdexcept>

class SDL {
  SDL(Uint32 flags = 0);
  virtual ~SDL();

SDL::SDL(Uint32 flags) {
  if (SDL_Init(flags) != 0)
    throw std::runtime_error(SDL_GetError());

SDL::~SDL() {

int main(){

  //create window
  SDL_Window *win = SDL_CreateWindow("Hello World!", 100, 100, 640, 480, SDL_WINDOW_SHOWN);
    std::cout << "SDL_CreateWindow Error: " << SDL_GetError() << std::endl;
    return -1;
  printf("debug %d\n",(int)__LINE__);  
  //create render
  //SDL_Renderer *ren = SDL_CreateRenderer(win, -1, 0);
  if (!ren){
    std::cout << "SDL_CreateRenderer Error: " << SDL_GetError() << std::endl;
    return 1;
  printf("debug %d\n",(int)__LINE__);  

  //clear the render
  SDL_SetRenderDrawColor(ren, 255, 255, 0, 255);
  //render our texture to render
  SDL_SetRenderDrawColor(ren, 0xFF, 0xFF, 0xFF, 0xFF);
  int ret=SDL_RenderDrawLine(ren,0,0,500,500);
    std::cout << "SDL_CreateTextureFromSurface Error: " << SDL_GetError() << std::endl;
    return -1;
  //update the screen

  return 0;
2. compile the code
 Before compile, you need SDL2-devel and g++ installed.
 g++ -Wall -Wextra -D_REENTRANT -I/usr/include/SDL2 test.cpp -o t -lSDL2 -lpthread  

3. run it

Actual results:
Yes, no lines.
And the debug output told us:
debug 32
ERROR: glxSwapIntervalMESA failed
INFO: OpenGL shaders: ENABLED
INFO: Created renderer: opengl
debug 40

Expected results:
There should be a line inside the window.

Additional info:
If we change the render driver from opengl to software (add this line to the beginning of main function) 

All things are right.

So, this is a problem of SDL2's opengl driver.

Comment 1 Björn "besser82" Esser 2013-09-28 10:06:51 EDT
Confirmed on F20 x86_64.  Same result for me:
--->  no line in window.
Comment 2 Igor Gnatenko 2013-09-28 11:24:14 EDT
confirm. how about test this on SDL? I meant probably mesa has this problem..
Comment 3 Igor Gnatenko 2013-09-28 14:26:50 EDT
submitted to upstream
Comment 4 Changming Sun 2013-09-28 22:09:42 EDT
__glXGetSwapIntervalMESA returns GLX_BAD_CONTEXT. so X11_GL_SetSwapInterval fail.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 17:19:14 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-18 06:30:45 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
