Hi everyone,

I recently updated my Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit system and started getting the following error when trying to start Foldit:

Foldit Error: The game has previously not started up correctly.
If this problem persists, please install the latest version.
freeglut ERROR: Internal error in function fgOpenWindow
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 4 (X_DestroyWindow)
Resource id in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 30
Current serial number in output stream: 33

Some potentially graphics related packages that were installed with the update are:
xserver-xorg-core (1.7.6-2ubuntu7.5, 1.7.6-2ubuntu7.6), xserver-common (1.7.6-2ubuntu7.5, 1.7.6-2ubuntu7.6), xserver-xorg-dev (1.7.6-2ubuntu7.5, 1.7.6-2ubuntu7.6), xvfb (1.7.6-2ubuntu7.5, 1.7.6-2ubuntu7.6), ia32-libs (2.7ubuntu26, 2.7ubuntu26.1)

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? It was previously working fine.

freeglut ERROR

follow that. Get 32 and 64 bit version. Foldit is 32 bit and need mostly 32 bit libraries.

I have installed the 32-bit

I have installed the 32-bit versions of freeglut3 and freeglut3-dev. And I have the ia32-libs, etc installed. I still get the same error.

When I install the 32-bit versions, a separate piece of software (PyMOL) that I compiled with 64-bit libraries stops working (it gives a ELF class error), so I can tell that the 32-bit version has an effect.

graphics drivers? I have not so fresh ATI (HD4650) and lots of issues on linux.
