Lightbulb Boxee won't start

I'm a first time user of boxee. When i terminal this command:
Quote:
/opt/boxee/run-boxee-desktop
I get:

Quote:

21/10/08 21:49:05#DEBUG#bxcurl.cpp:63(Initialize)#curl initialized. version <7.18.0>

Running Boxee test...
And the log goes to... /tmp/test-

try to run glxgears.
it fails, right?

you need to (re)install your nvidia/ati drivers.

Boxees, you need to detect this condition and fail gracefuly.

From this I gather Boxee will not run without 3d card drivers installed and activated. Is this correct?

it is... the core of xbmc/boxee is based on the sdl 3d framework... it's more designed for cross-platform games, then this type of application.... but it fits the bill.

i run boxee 0.9.20 on: ubuntu 9.10, windows xp sp3 (virtual machine), windows 7 and a neuros link hacked to all hell.

what super powers does a 'super mod' have? the 'super ban'... that, and laser vision.

to be more accurate... Boxee uses SDL for the window creation but from there on it is pure OpenGL. It is important to make sure that Direct Rendering is enabled (glxinfo). This requires Nvidia/ATI propietery drivers or Intel (945+).
