America's Army "Cannot find matching GLX visual", X.Org, 128MB ATI Radeon 9200


These are my hardware specs, if they'll be of any help:

Graphics card: 128 MB ATI Radeon 9200
Chipset: AMD Athlon "Thoroughbred" XP+ 2200.
Processor speed: 1.8 GiHz

Same with software:

Distro: Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"
Display: X.Org 6.8.2-77
Mesa version: 6.2.1
Kernel: 2.6.12-10-386

I can't get past the splash screen after trying to start the game with "sh armyops" in the main directory. The first message I got was:

Code:
Cheat protection disabled
WARNING: ALC_EXT_capture is subject to change!
Xlib: extension XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD missing on display ':0.0'
Either GL_EXT_bgra or glDrawRangeElements not supported- bailing out.
I assumed this to be non-hardware related and instead a problem with X. So in short order, I downloaded + ran "fglrxconfig", and then replaced the "ati" driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf with "fglrx"

This is the message I get now:

Code:
Cheat protection disabled
WARNING: ALC_EXT_capture is subject to change!
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual.
The message apparently says that my GL drivers aren't installed. Which I know is false. I can run the Mesa demo applications, I used to be able to run the GL version of Breakout (albeit at a horribly slow rate) and I reinstalled the Mesa libraries twice - with 6.4.2 most recent. However, the output of glxinfo - down below - shows that my Mesa drivers are still stuck at 6.2.1. It says the same thing in the ATI control panel - after I downloaded the ATI proprietary driver, version 8.21.7 . . .

I've taken certain solutions on the Internet, such as linking the GL drivers to the America's Army system directory through ln -s, and/or using LD_PRELOAD="/usr/lib/libGL.so" before running the game. Neither have worked.

I even ran a sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and let it run through the options, being sure to reset driver to "fglrx" after.
It still hasn't worked.


Here is the output of fgl_glxgears, glxgears -printfps, and glxinfo (in that order):

Code:

Just some ideas:
Do you have:
Code:
 Load       "glx"
in xorg.conf and
Code:
#    Load       "dri"
commented out?

Another question, I have nVidia card so I am not sure, but is fglrx the proprietary ATI driver? I believe you will need that for the hardware acceleration this game requires.

If you do get the game running be carefull! I accidently shot an army guy and they put my character in the brig and wouldn't let me play the game anymore. I'm waiting for the black helicopters to come now...

Load "glx" is in there, and "dri" is not commented out. I think I'll do that now and see if X starts up again on reboot.

fglrx, to the best of my knowledge, is not the proprietary ATI driver.

Yeah, you can't have glx and dri. Try one or the other. And again, not sure but you may have to install the binary ATI driver to get it to work.

Why reboot? This isn't windows, just restart the xserver (ctrl-alt-backspace)

I just commented out DRI and I'm getting, in addition to the same message as before:

Code:
Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
The driver is set to "ati" in xorg.conf and the ATI control panel from that installed binary is giving me this notification:

Code:
Driver does not provide the FireGL X11 Extensions!
Panel components will operate only partially.

I like being thorough.

PS: Going back and commenting out GLX left me worse off. Lol.
GLX extension was missing and when I tried glxgears it said this:

Code:
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual

Sorry guy, you are going to have to wait for an ATI expert to help here, as I am fresh out of ideas.

Don't worry about it. So am I.
