hrev46154 Since this revision, i have found some issues with OpenGL games "BillardGL" and "Chromium". With BillardGL i have noticed that runs much slower than before: is noticeable. BillardGL relies on "", which is linked to "/system/lib/" I have overridden this library, by creating a "lib" folder in BillardGL path, using a from a old nightly build, linked as, and with this "Hack" BillardGL runs better.

The second issue is related to Chromium: when i attempt to run Chromium, for a second i can see a blank windows which tells "no render found" and if i run Chromium from a Terminal window i can read:

resolve symbol "__ti11BGLRenderer" returned: -2147478780
no renderer found! 
BRect(l:0.0, t:0.0, r:1279.0, b:1023.0)
Segmentation violation

And inside the syslog:

KERN: runtime_loader: /boot/system/add-ons/opengl/Legacy Software Rasterizer: Could not resolve symbol '__ti11BGLRenderer'
KERN: runtime_loader: /boot/system/add-ons/opengl/Legacy Software Rasterizer: Troubles relocating: Symbol not found
KERN: vm_soft_fault: va 0x0 not covered by area in address space
KERN: vm_page_fault: vm_soft_fault returned error 'Bad address' on fault at 0x0, ip 0x5e5022, write 0, user 1, thread 0x8dde
KERN: vm_page_fault: thread "Chromium" (36318) in team "Chromium" (36318) tried to read address 0x0, ip 0x5e5022 ("libroot.so_seg0ro" +0x80022)

These games run fine on hrev46102 gcc2h

I'm currently working on redoing *everything*. A lot of GL stuff broke with the PM changes. Sit tight. (i'm actually compiling Mesa as I type this)

As i can see on older nigthlies, Chromium use system/add-ons/opengl/gcc4/Software Rasterizer instead of Legacy Software Rasterizer. hrev46154 is marked as gcc2h.. Why miss some components?

EDIT: We reply at the same time!

In addition i have also noticed that mesa-7.8.2-3-x86_gcc2.hpkg and mesa_x86-9.1.1-1-x86_gcc2.hpkg packages, just contain the ".PackageInfo" file and nothing else.

Kallisti5: when will be available the newer Mesa? :-)

comment:4 by kallisti5, 6 years ago

the mesa package was a dummy package after the PM migration. I'm currently working on moving our entire OpenGL kit into Mesa. For more information see the mesa-dev mailing list and search for Haiku.

New mesa packages are available now. Does it help?

comment:6 by Giova84, 5 years ago


Unfortunately these apps ("BillardGL" and "Chromium") no longer work on Haiku, so I can't answer to your question.

Would be nice to port them again on Haiku, however (also to see if the new mesa packages help in terms of performances)

This bug is now resolved.

BillardGL 1.75 -
Tested BillardGL 1.75-1 on hrev52300 x86. Works fine. No major performance issues. 

Chromium B.S.U. -
Issues resolved in hrev52300 x86 w/ Mesa 7.9.2-11.
