Description Kjartan Maraas 2000-07-15 12:15:36 UTC
Returning to my machine after spending some time in the kitchen preparing a
chicken risotto I was met with the following:

Couldn't open required GL library /usr/lib/Mesa3/libGL.so.1.2!
gears: error while loading shared libraries: gears: undefined symbol:
glXChooseVisual
xscreensaver: child pid 1165 (gears) exited abnormally (code 127)

Making a symlink from /usr/lib/Mesa3/libGL.1.2.0 to
/usr/lib/Mesa3/libGL.1.2
made the screensaver work. So either the symlink is missing or the app
shouldn't
look for it ;)

I see that the Mesa4 lib has only libGL.1.2 and not libGL.1.2.0

Cheers

This should all read libGL.so.1.2 etc of course.
                                     ^^
