Description Jonathan Berry 2006-06-14 09:29:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When connecting to a server to play some levels, bzflag crashes with a failed
bzflag: indirect_vertex_array.c:659: emit_DrawArrays_old: Assertion
`elements_per_request >= count' failed.

This happens immediately after connecting to the server right before the game
should come up telling you to press i or right click to spawn.  This only
happens for some levels, or more specifically does not happen for some levels.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ bzflag --version
BZFlag client (protocol 0026) http://BZFlag.org/
$ rpm -qa bzflag

Only this version seems to have this problem.  The earlier version, 2.0.4-3,
works fine.

How reproducible:
Always on certain levels.  Does not occur when playing some levels.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start bzflag (from terminal to see message)
2. Select "Join Game"
3. Select Find Server and select one, eg BZFX :: Boxy War
4. Select Connect
5. bzflag quits with the above assertion failure

Actual results:
bzflag crashes

Expected results:
bzflag loads the level and play begins

Additional info:
For the levels that this does not happen on, bzflag plays and works perfectly.
It either works or does not.
I downloaded the src.rpm and could not find any reference to the information
given in the assertion error above.
Unrelated, but attempting to rebuild the src.rpm failed with the error:
g++: /usr/lib/libidn.so: No such file or directory

FC5/FE5 is out of maintenance. Could you reproduce your problem with a later
version, e.g. bzflag-2.0.8-4.fc7 on Fedora 7?
