Hi all,

The following error is apperared in my Ubuntu as I was trying to run a simulator program and specifically when I was trying to visualize my data with OGLSX.
I have NO idea what is this or what I have to install additionally.

X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 13
Current serial number in output stream: 13

Thank you in advance for any help..

Hi Theo,

Reading this bug report, it seems as if this is a known issue with certain hardware platforms on particular releases of Ubuntu. For the Ubuntunites, it seems to come down to buggy drivers and/or a failure to load the necessary modules for 3d rendering. I don't know what disro you're using, so I don't know how much help that is for you however I'd check the Xorg log and see if you're getting an error similar to
(EE) fglrx(0): atiddxDriScreenInit failed, GPS not been initialized.
(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************
(WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! *
(WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO) *
(WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available *
(WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* *

They suggest several possible solutions.
