Bug report please!

I did a bug report for a different kst2 issue that is a fatal problem -
it will not open data files.

The category issue is JM2CW. I can't call a preference difference a bug.

The openGL issue is, of course, serious. I was waiting on that until
there was a version that would at least work (see bug about opening data
files). At that time, I can see if the openGL problem persists. Opening
a file at all is a bigger fish.

(Sorry for the late reply. There has been ISP madness in these parts. I
trust all is sorted.)

Now to the real issue. I am trying to run the current version 2 beta on
a 4.3.1 kde4 system. However, the app fails with:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Segmentation fault

This is true. I do not have glx on the machine in question (ATI FireGL
V3300 is not supported by the ATI driver...)

Is this a compile flag that openSUSE set so that kst requires this? Or
is it a thing kst will always need? I can file a bug if it is a bug. But
I am exploring first.

No, I did a quick google and it seems kst added an OpenGL dependency in its
port to KDE 4. I don't know why it crashes. Perhaps you could chase it up
on the kst list and open a bug if openSUSE is doing something wrong in our

I will do this.
