TCL 14.0 32BIT : FIREFOX GLX MISSING
« on: November 30, 2023, 05:50:53 AM »
Hello,

My OS: tinycorelinux 14.0 32bit.

When launching Firefox from a terminal, I get the following warnings:

Code: [Select]
[GFX1-]: glxtest: libEGL initialize failed
[GFX1-]: glxtest: GLX extension missing
[GFX1-]: glxtest: libEGL initialize failed

After searching, I see that libEGL is installed :

Code: [Select]
/usr/local/lib/libEGL.so.1.0.0
/usr/local/lib/libEGL.so.1
/usr/local/lib/libEGL.so

However, about the GLX extension, I can't find anything on the machine.
It seems that the absence of this extension is preventing transactions on e-commerce sites.

Where can I find the missing extension?

Thank you for your help.

Friendly.

Hi Rantanplan. Try
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -wi Xorg-7.7-3dthen reboot. See if your problem goes away after the reboot.

Hello GNUser,

thanks for your reply.

Doesn't work : i can't reboot.

Here, my onboot.lst :
Code: [Select]
Xvesa.tcz
aterm.tcz
wbar.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz
wifi.tcz
iw.tcz
firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz
firmware-rtlwifi.tcz
tc-install-GUI.tcz
kmaps.tcz
alsa-config.tcz
iptables.tcz
alsa.tcz
mylocale.tcz

Probably, the fail explanation.

If I have to install xorg and others packages, I don't want to bother with it.

Thanks again.

Friendly.

Oh, that's a pity. Xvesa is good but very minimalistic. If firefox is complaining about missing 3d graphics, then I think you need full-blown Xorg with OpenGL or it's not going to work. Good luck.

It's very unlikely e-commerce sites would be using 3d graphics for payments. Probably something else is affecting that.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

In the meantime, I've been using SliTaz Rolling 5.0 with Firefox 77. ???

I didn't write down all the warnings.
I'll retest and drop the alarms here.

Thanks

I use Firefox without GLX and it doesn't cause problems with e-commerce websites. Nor should it. I've never needed to run Xorg instead of Xvesa in order to make a website work (though I never try to watch videos in Firefox).

Try creating an new profile in Firefox and see if those websites work with that.

Thank you CNK.

That's an idea I'll try.

[SOLVED]: TCL 14.0 32BIT : FIREFOX IMPOSSIBLE TO PAY
« Reply #8 on: December 01, 2023, 05:33:28 AM »
Hello all,

changing profile in firefox : impossible to pay
changing firefox version : impossible to pay
changing locale by adding UTF-8 and modifying extlinux.conf by lang=fr_FR.UTF-8 : possible to pay

Thanks for yours ideas.

Thanks for sharing how you got it working. I didn't know that Firefox cared about the system language setting since it has its own setting for that.
