Do you have the NVIDIA binary drivers installed?
What does 'stat -c %N /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1' show?
Do you get the same crash after running/closing 'glxgears'?
Yes indeed, I had some leftovers from a previous nvidia driver installation.
libGL.so.1 was pointing to nvidia's libGL but shoudn't mesa-libGL upgrade overwrite this ? yum reinstall does not overwrite either.
Strangely glxgears was working.
Anyway it seems to work now after deleting leftovers.
'yum reinstall' did not fix it for me either. I even tried deleting the symlink, then running 'yum reinstall' only to have the symlink recreated pointing to NVIDIA's libGL.so.1
'rpm -V mesa-libGL.x86_64' returns '....L.... /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1' which acknowledges that the symlink has been modified. (The 'L' meaning "readLink(2) path mismatch") My final solution was to manually modify the link to point to `/usr/lib64/libGL.so.1.2'.

Closing as CANTFIX as this seems to be caused by the NVIDIA binary driver.
If you used a non-packaged version of the driver from the Nvidia website please clean your system from additional libraries and software it installed. For users who are experiencing problems installing, configuring, or using the unsupported 3rd party proprietary "nvidia" video driver, Nvidia provides indirect customer support via an online web based support forum. Nvidia monitors these web forums for commonly reported problems and passes them on to Nvidia engineers for investigation. Once they've isolated a particular problem, it is often fixed in a future video driver update.
The NVNews Nvidia Linux driver forum is located at:
Once you have reported this issue in the Nvidia web forums, others who may have experienced the same problem may be able to assist. If there is a real bug occurring, Nvidia will be able to determine this, and will likely resolve the issue in a future driver update for the operating system releases that they officially support.
While we does not support the proprietary nvidia driver, users requiring technical support may also find the various X.Org, XFree86, and Red Hat/Fedora mailing lists helpful in finding assistance:
