Segmentation fault


#1

Installed Panda from the Mandrake RPM. Everything seemed to go OK so I created the file to start Panda and executed it. I got a segmentation fault.

I’m running Mandrake 10.0 Community. Here’s all I got. I threw in the “more” just to display the contents of my startpanda.py:

[allen@pcp0011435770pcs Panda]$ ppython pandastart.py
DirectStart: Starting the game.
Segmentation fault
[allen@pcp0011435770pcs Panda]$ more pandastart.py
import direct.directbase.DirectStart
run()
[allen@pcp0011435770pcs Panda]$

Are you able to run the pview command successfully, and does it open a window?

It doesn’t open a window. I get the following:

It looks like OpenGL is not yet configured on your Linux installation. You will need to find out from the Mandrake forums–or possibly from your video card manufacturer–what the correct way to do this is.

I’m not sure if this is related to the crash you get trying to start up Panda within Python; that certainly shouldn’t crash, even if OpenGL isn’t configured, but it could be related.
