Description Roc Halbasch 2006-11-21 22:32:48 UTC
Whenever I try to run an openGL application all I get is a black window and I 
get the error. 

    libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b. 

Some applications will freeze and the window can't be closed and the process 
can't be killed but I can still move the window around. Oddly enough openGL 
works for the gnome screen saver config dialog for a while but if you preview 
in full screen, click outside of the dialog, or switch through several GL 
screensavers it stops working and I just get blank screens for the GL 
screensavers till I reboot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run glxgears or and openGL application.
Actual results:
Windows lock up with blank black screen. Get error listed above. Some windows 

Expected results:
Applications to actually work.

Additional info:

Sorry this is on a system with a Voodoo 5 5500 and the tdfx driver and I have

Updating summary, the visual message is harmless.

Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2006-12-05 15:39:57 UTC
There is a new tdfx driver in updates-testing for FC6, 1.3.0-2, does this work
any better for you?

Much better however some apps still won't run (such as foobilliards) and 
compiz and beryl still don't work but for the mosyt part all works pretty well

Another aaplication that does not run is google earth. Another user I know who
has had the same problems as I has experienced similar behavior. Here is the
output from the last time I ran Google Earth:

We apologize for the inconvenience, but Google Earth has crashed.
 This is a bug in the program, and should never happen under normal
 circumstances. A bug report and debugging data are now being written
 to this text file:


This bug report will be sent to Google automatically next time you run
 Google Earth. Its data, which contains no personal information, will help
 us correct problems without bothering you further. If you would rather
 this info not be transmitted, please delete the above file before running
 the program again. If you want bug reports to NEVER be sent, remove the
 above 'crashlogs' directory's read/write permissions.

Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2006-12-11 20:13:13 UTC
Please, one bug per issue in the future.

compiz and beryl are unlikely to ever work on the 3dfx cards, as they do not
support non-power-of-two textures.

Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2006-12-11 21:38:00 UTC
New tdfx 2d driver is in fc6 updates now, closing this bug.  Please see bug
#219202 for the compressed textures issue.
