Missing GL implementation for Linux

Recommended Posts

I am trying to compile The Dark Mod (r7203) under Linux.
It appears commit r7128 calls GLimp_DeactivateFrontendContext() (framework/Session.cpp line 3017), whose implementation is not provided for Linux (sys/linux/glimp.cpp), while it is provided for Windows (sys/win32/win_glimp.cpp).

 

Any solution to this?

I am trying to compile The Dark Mod (r7203) under Linux.

It appears commit r7128 calls GLimp_DeactivateFrontendContext() (framework/Session.cpp line 3107), whose implementation is not provided for Linux (sys/linux/glimp.cpp), while it is provided for Windows (sys/win32/win_glimp.cpp).

 

Any solution to this?

 

What is the Linux version of qwglMakeCurrent? The function is rather simple.

void GLimp_DeactivateFrontendContext() {
	qwglMakeCurrent( NULL, NULL );
}

That seems to be a rather tough question from a little searching.

It seems there's no pre-built function like this in Linux and different developers are rolling their own

or avoiding multi-threading on the Linux side.

Then an empty function for now

So when I get set up to build linux binaries again, am I going to run into this, or does someone need to change the makefiles?

}

I can use either an empty function,

void GLimp_DeactivateFrontendContext() {}

or a function similar to what you suggest in the quote:

void GLimp_DeactivateFrontendContext() {
	assert( dpy );
	qglXMakeCurrent( dpy, None, NULL );
}

(this is actually the same as Linux implementation of GLimp_DeactivateContext())...

Where should I look for failure when testing? Just to be clear: I have no clue what I am doing, here.

 

Actually, I can't because I have another army of missing functions after this one... but that's for another thread, since it's from a different commit.

I just committed the fix in SVN revision 7215.

Although I don't expect the multithreaded renderer to work under Linux.

Why not? I do. Last I tried, it worked fine in the menu. I couldn't load any actual missions for some reason which had nothing to do with the renderer. But if the menu works, there's no fundamental reason why it wouldn't work ingame.

Try r_useGLSL 0

 

The GLSL renderer is probably using extensions that are too new for free drivers.

 

You'll need to set r_softShadows 0 before you change that because this setting forces GLSL on.

I used the NIVIDIA proprietary drivers, and enabling or disabling GLSL made no difference. Again, I'm not sure the problem was related to the renderer at all. But I don't really use Linux outside of work anymore, so I didn't have the chance to investigate further...
