You're stuck unless someone updates the Linux drivers.
blackout24 Feb 18, 2013 @ 10:20am 
True. And OpenGL 3.0 isn't something that get's added with newer drivers I belive.
Just like some cards only support Direct X10. They won't get Direct X11 support with newer drivers. Correct me if I'm wrong.

OpenGL 3.0 is a rather high requirement. Anything from 2007 or older bascially only supports OpenGL 2.1. NVIDIA Cards only support OpenGL 3.0 with 8000 series or newer.

PROBLEM: You appear to have OpenGL 1.4.0, but we need at least 2.0.0!
Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated.

That's wierd, because Source Engine needs OpenGL 3.0. My laptop with 6000 series GPU from NVIDIA only has 2.1 support and can't start TF2 either. For Mac the requirements also say minimum Geforce 8000 which is 3.0 support.

Solution: you must buy a new graphics card and/or computer (unfortunately this is actually the truth).

Ok so let me get this...

So Because the lack of Driver Support in Linux... I must buy a whole new laptop?

If this in fact WAS a HARDWARE issue why is it that I can run it on Windows?



Anyhow thanks for the support guys.... I hope they push out some Intel Drivers in the near future, I mean after all that is one of the great things in Linux.. "Support for Old Hardware"

You can run it in Windows because of DX9, and you *can't* run it in Linux purely because of the higher OpenGL requirement.

It is unfortunate, but it is one of those things.

It's not that simple. Intel is really pushing hard their drivers NOW. But they wont make a lot of effort for older hardwares.
You, unfortunately will probably be out of luck on Linux, unfortunetly :(

Some time ago they really make some updates on older hardware, so maybe you will have some chances to this work correctly in the future, but don't hold your breath.

Because graphics cards manufacturers write the drivers for different OSes, and some OSes get higher priority than others (obv more people have Windows, so they will prioritize making good Windows drivers instead of Linux drivers). This is not a "Linux sucks because X," but rather a "____ graphics card manufacturer sucks because they won't make good drivers for Linux."

ahh thanks for summing it up guys... I always thought there were 3rd party options...

Aside from that.... what would you guys say about a GT520? on my main rig i could give this a go..

That's..an entry level DX11 card isn't it? Should be more than enough for TF2, *and* it's Nvidia, who at the moment are the team to beat for drivers in Linux..

I would just fix that to: "Nvidia, who at the moment are the team to beat for OPENGL SUPPORT in linux.."

nVIDIA really have bad reputation among kernel developers and has some basic issues, most of them because they need to be a closed source developper in a GPL kernel.

But it is the best, by far, for many years from now (at least 12 years), the best OpenGL capable driver on Linux

With Kernel 3.9 they will be able to use DMA_BUF for Optimus Supprot throug their prime helper that wil be merged into 3.9. At least you don't ge the impression that Linux is second class for NVIDIA. Up until 304.64 they supported very old cards with regular and stable new driver updates.

If you have an Intel/NVIDIA rig in terms of support it is absolutely on par with Windows. Can't get any more performance than with this combo anyway. It's still sad to see all those AMD graphics card users having problems. They make up for a good portion of the gaming community.

Intel Open Source Technology Center Mesa < is your problem

Even though you are on mint check out.
