Can you tell me, which graphic adapter do you use?

As second, it may be helpful, if you can create a backtrace.

Comment 3 Jochen Schmitt 2008-07-08 15:24:52 UTC
Thank you for your backtrace. As far as I can see, it's seems to be a
Mesa/OpenGL related issue. So it may be nice, if you can tell me, which graphics
adapter do you use?

Hi Jochen, 

I'm using the following graphics card:
Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device

I hope this helps. I am using the "intel" driver. Previously, I had been using
the i810 driver.

Comment 5 Jochen Schmitt 2008-07-08 16:07:32 UTC
At first, I want to ask, if you have a full updated system. This may be
important, because there was any well-known issue releating with Intel graphics
adapters on F-9.

If the issue still exist, you should open a bug agains Mesa, becouse the
backtrace shows, that the crash occures on libdricore.so which is part of the
mesa-libGL package, so I have to assume, that your issue a coused by a
uncompletely OpenGL support from your graphic adapter.

For Information, on a NVidia graphic adapter with the closed-source graphic
driver I can start blender without any issues.

Best Regards:

Jochen Schmitt
