Boxes demo from Qt crash on linux

  • Hi,

    The boxes demo (which uses shaders) crashes on my qt installed on ubuntu linux 10.04.
    Any idea why or am I missing any dependencies? It compiles just fine though.
    All other opengl examples work.

    OS - Ubuntu 10.04
    Qt - 4.7.3
    Creator - 2.2.1

    I get the warning related to gpu and then it crashes.

    @Starting /opt/QtSDK/Demos/4.7/boxes/boxes...
    The program has unexpectedly finished.
    /opt/QtSDK/Demos/4.7/boxes/boxes exited with code 0
    /opt/QtSDK/Demos/4.7/boxes/boxes exited with code 0@


  • Just realized that it probably isn't working because I'm running ubuntu as the guest OS on VMware and I see a lot of posts related to absence of 3d h/w acceleration on a VM. Works just fine on my laptop that runs ubuntu.
    I also realize it isn't a Qt question (anymore) but any inputs on how to get it to work on a VM would still be useful.
