Error openGL entry point 'glGetError' since last update
Since today's upgrade (upgrade ubuntu + steam), I can't launch any steam game.
Error is :
Could not find required openGL entry point 'glGetError' ! Either your video card is unsupported, or your openGL driver needs to be updated

Ubuntu 12.10 64bit
Kernel 3.7.0-7
Nvidia GTX 550Ti with Nvidia 313.18
X Server : 11301901

Any idea ?
Thanks for your help

Back to Ubuntu 12.04.2 with PPA xorg edgers (kernel 3.5 & nvidia 313.18) and steam is OK now...

locate -i libgl.so
/debception/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1
/debception/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1.2
/home/david96/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/share/doc/nvidia-cg-toolkit/examples/Tools/trace/libGL.so.1.gz

/wheezy/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1
/wheezy/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1.2
I see /usr/lib/libGL.so.313.18, so
cp /usr/lib/libGL.so.313.18 /wheezy/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

start to tf2, but problème :
PROBLEM: You appear to have OpenGL 1.4.0, but we need at least 2.0.0!

Same here, same error message.

Ubuntu 12.04lts on AMD A8-3870 APU

Re-installing ATI Catalyst 13.1 drivers fixed it for me.
