Bug Description


The new version of libgl1-mesa-glx introduced in 11.10 is now freezing Scilab.
Installing the package libgl1-mesa-swx11 (which will remove libgl1-mesa-glx will fix the issue).

This has been reported on the Scilab bug tracker.


In Ubuntu 11.10 when I plot any graphics the scilab freeze and I cant't close it.

No, The problem remain.

Could you do the following:
apt-get install scilab-full-bin-dbg scilab-minimal-bin-dbg gdb

scilab-adv-cli -debug -e plot3d
in gdb, type
handle SIGSEGV nostop print

and once it reached the real freeze, type "bt" and please provide the full stack trace.

Sylvestre, I ran according to your comment #5,
however during the real freeze I had to type Ctrl-C before being able to type "bt".

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

ok, thanks

Two others questions:
* still in gdb, could you copy/paste the result of "info threads"
* what is the result of dpkg -l|grep openjdk

There is a work-around (or solution?) in the Scilab newsgroup:

However, I don't want to be stuck with Unity 2D by having to remove lib-mesa-glx and others.

Installing libgl1-mesa-swx11 or removing libgl1-mesa-glx fix the issue.

I reported a bug against the mesa package:

I heard doing this work-around will break Unity, making the computer start on Unity 2D, is that true?

Probably. I haven't tried yet (I am installing a clean image to test that).

Please execute the following command, as it will automatically gather debugging information, in a terminal:
apport-collect 877491

walter-garcia: I have done that command. It gave me trouble the first couple of times I ran it (saying I was not the reporter or subscriber, or that the bug must be duplicate), but a third time it went on to send my info. I hope my private information is useful to Ubuntu, if it was any other OS I would never have done this ;)

@rfabbri: your reports didn't get attached to this bug report, because as you said you are not the original reporter. I was sending my request to the original reporter.

Hello Sylvestre, This bug has been fixed?

See the workaround of the comment #10
I will ping ubuntu people about the mesa issue...

Ricardo, could you upload manually your information ?

@sylvestre, I cannot send my information anymore since I borrowed my laptop to a friend of mine. I am using an old computer now which runs Gentoo. It will take me weeks until I get my Ubuntu laptop back.

hi, I have this problem too with gnome-shell. Any news to keep the nice 3d environment?
Thank you

AFAIK, Ubuntu people haven't fixed this issue yet...

delva, could you do what has been requested here ?

it would be great if you could

Hi, I'm not sure waht to do with the command apport-collect 877491... It tells me I'm not the writer of the bug. Then I sent a report but I'm not sure it worked.

I put some notes on by mistake. Should that one be marked a duplicate of this or vice versa?
