Description L 2009-02-05 22:24:37 EST
Description of problem:
Program doesn't start, reports an error related to my graphics card.  Fresh install of Fedora 10, default video driver.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q avogadro

$ uname -a
Linux xx.xx.xx.xx #1 SMP Wed Jan 21 02:09:37 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:

What I expect:
an error message or report.  Incompatible drivers?  Improper 3D support for OpenGL? 


Actual results:

-from menu:
Applications > Education > Avogadro  (no response, no error)

-from terminal
$ avogadro
System has OpenGL support.
Locale:  "en_US" 
Loaded translations (if needed) about to test OpenGL capabilities.

	Double Buffering.
	Direct Rendering.

==>  It seems related to OpenGL but I am ignorant about which graphics driver is being used by default.  (please give instructions)  In case it is helpful for the package developer, I will wait before following instructions at fedorafaq.org for installing ATI's flgrx.  For Avogadro to be included as a stable package, I think it should work with the default drivers or at least provide a warning error.

If there is no response by about 1 week, I will install fglrx and come back here with a comment.

avogadro: radeon_lock.c:100: radeonGetLock: Assertion `drawable != ((void *)0)'

Isn't coming form avogadro, but (likely) your X driver itself, reassigning -> xorg-x11-drv-ati
