    X Error of failed request: GLXBadFBConfig

    Hi,
    I'm writing c++ code using openGL.
    The compilation is good, but when I try to run the program I get the message:

    X Error of failed request: GLXBadFBConfig
    Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 34 ()
    Serial number of failed request: 34
    Current serial number in output stream: 33

    I have tried many things I saw from other forums, but couldn't solve it.
    I'm using Dell inspirion mini 1018 (32 bit), Ubuntu OS.
    Any Idea?
    Thanks!

    How are you creating the context? Are you creating it yourself with the GLX functions, or using a library such as GLUT or Qt?

    The main reasons for GLXBadFBConfig are
    1. Your OpenGL setup (drivers etc) is broken. Try running "glxinfo" to check that OpenGL is at least minimally functional.
    2. You're requesting an OpenGL version which is newer than what your hardware or drivers support.
