I’ve install all the packages, but when I’ve tried to launch some test examples, it just freezed my system, so no signals from keyboard or mouse, I had to make reset.
Second time iit seemed to work, but the screen won’t update, so the image was totally crappy.
Please help me!!!
It sounds like you have a bad driver for your graphics card. You can try to locate a better driver.
An alternative is to run Panda in software mode, by putting:
in your Config.prc file (replacing “load-display pandagl”). This will, of course, limit your ability to render high-quality graphics.
I got Intel video card, HP 6530b laptop
I’ve tried tinydisplay , it says that it hasn’t display pipe
Umm, I’m not sure what that means. Maybe you don’t have the $DISPLAY environment variable set?
Can you paste the exact error message?
It’s your video driver. Intel cards suck at supporting OpenGL and 99% of the time it’s the driver… I run Panda3D just fine on a SONY VAIO with an Intel 945 chipset but I had to do some tweaking…
Thank you all very much, the problem is SOLVED by installing proper drivers.
If anybody got a same problem, you can call me, and I’ll send you an e-mail =)
well it’s not that intel drivers are bad with opengl. but ubuntu 9.04 came with kernel which where intel merged new stuff into like DRI2 support, which broke a lot of things. This is pretty much the worst bug in ubuntu 9.04. it’s fixed in 9.10 btw.
