glchess can't find 3D libraries

Asked by Jonathan Cohen on 2007-03-29

I'm running Feisty Fawn beta -- just upgraded. When I launch glchess (installed as part of gnome-games) and try to change the view to 3D, I get an error box saying "Unable to enable 3D mode" and an injunction to install the OpenGL Python bindings and the GTKGLExt Python bindings.

A trip to the package manager reveals that python2.4-opengl and libgtkglext1 are installed and current.

My only guess is that Python 2.5 was installed as part of the update process and that the libraries were built with Python 2.4.

I have same problem.

The blog post is of no help, because I am running AMD64 Feisty Faun, and the python-gtkglext1 extension appears to be 32-bit only.

I don't think the bug report (#71593) mention explicitly that an AMD64 build is also needed. Perhaps you want to add it as a reminder (just in case....)?

Looks like Debian now has it...

Hope this helps out a fellow amd64 user.
