View Full Version : Can't start Boxee
November 14th, 2008, 07:02 PM
when I try to start Boxee (Ubuntu Hardy Heron) I get the following error:
/opt/boxee/Boxee: symbol lookup error: /opt/boxee/Boxee: undefined symbol: glXGetProcAddress
Any idea how to fix it?

glxinfo | grep -i direct
direct rendering: Yes
my video card is a ASUS V6800 Deluxe (Geforce 256 DDR) so I have to use the legacy driver
I know that this is not the newest card

sorry i believe this card is too old to work ..is not supported. our minimal requirements include an opengl 1.4 compatible card..

It is likely that your video card will work just fine. The issue is really that the nvidia driver does not have glXGetProcAddress, rather it is replaced by glXGetProcAddressARB. The problem is explained very well here http://anirudhs.chaosnet.org/blog/2005.11.05.html
A work around that involves writing a simple wrapper function compiled as a library will fix this problem. This work around is explained very well by this post on the xbmc forum http://xbmc.org/forum/showpost.php?p=248010&postcount=55. I hope that helps.
