Hi Jordi,

Trying running in Mesa software opengl mode, could be your graphics card
not supporting hardware opengl > 1.2

Subject: [idvusers] problems running IDV in Linux

I'm trying to run IDV on a Linux machine (ubuntu 7.10, gnome) without
success; when executing the IDV script, the initialization window
appears, stating "Initializing resources", then "Creating User
Interfaces". After that the "dashboard" window appears briefly and
suddenly every crashes with a "segmentation fault" message. If only
found an error message at /var/log/apport.log :

/apport (pid 6845) Thu Jul 17 11:08:30 2008: called for pid 6722, signal

Any clue??

Thanks in advance,
