Thanks for clearing that up. I debated where to ask this question. I stuck it here because of the question about the two builds sharing the same config file.

Thanks again,

Lighting Problem (linux version)

What's suppoed to happen when I try to render a cube when no lights exist? I assume, like 3dsmax, that the scene should enable some sort of default lighting. That doesn't appear to be happening as my cube just renders black if I don't create some lights. Also, what's the best way to reset blender to...

I'm using ubuntu, but the packages may still be the same, or very similar. Here's what I had to install after a clean dapper install: sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-dev sudo apt-get install libjpeg62-dev sudo apt-get install libtiff4-dev sudo apt-get install python-dev sudo apt-get install libsdl1....

Good news and bad news... The good news is everything is fixed and blender is now running fully opengl accelerated! The bad news is I had to reinstall linux. The mesa drivers I was using were so deeply ingrained in my system it broke everything when I removed them. Fortunately, I expected that would...

Thank you Neil!!! I finally have confirmation of what I've suspected. Blender is definately running in software mode. I would agree with you about the compiling issues, but Ubuntu's Blender is also running in software mode. I think the problem is that the nvidia installer installed some files to non...

My graphics drivers are working properly. If they weren't then I wouldn't be able to play world of warcraft 90fps at 1920x1200 in linux. This is a very high end graphics card, it's a removable pci express card. Don't let the laptop thing decieve you, it's just as fast as the desktop counterpart. Thi...

Edit: I just reread this and it sounds kinda aggressive. Not meant to be at all. I appreciate the help so far. First off I built blender from the source so static builds do not apply. There are no linux x64 2.42 static versions of Blender available yet. Second, I did not install the drivers through ...

I compiled a 2.42 build from the official stable source. Drivers are the most current nvidia release (1.0.8762). I kinda stated all o...

Well, I found the super secret hidden settings menu. Not much in the way of settings to mess with unfortunately.

Terrible OpenGL performance

To start off, I'm a complete noob with Blender. I've been using 3dsmax since 3d studio in DOS, but I'm running linux 100% now so 3dsmax is out of the question. Using Ubuntu Dapper x64. I have the 2.41 blender version installed from the repos and 2.42 compiled from source. Both version have TERRIBLE ...

kidb, It's funny, I didn't install that package because, being it replaced so many packages, I thought it would break things. Anyway, I now have Blender 2.42 compiled and it works! I REALLY appreciate your help, I wouldn't have been able to do it without your guidence. I did have to disable a few th...

I've gotten much further, I think most of Blender is compiled. I'm getting this error now: Compiling ==> 'buildinfo.c' scons: *** Source `/usr/libGL.a' not found, needed by target `/home/bob/build/linux2/bin/blender'. Stop. libGL.a is not on my system and I cannot find what package provides it. BTW,...

Thanks, I actually found that link. Are there any good instructional links to compile? I'm sifting through a lot of documentation and am still a little confused. I'm used to doing the standard ./configure->make->make install, but this appears much more involved.
