OpenGL broken with guest additions

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Host: Redhat 6.3 Guest: Ubuntu 12.04 VBox: 4.1.18 (Matching guest additions and extension pack installed.)

When 3D acceleration is enabled via the VirtualBox settings, OpenGL programs do not display properly in the Guest OS. The program being run in the guest (IQmol) gives the following terminal info:

OpenGL Warning: No pincher, please call crStateSetCurrentPointers() in your SPU
X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9
  Major opcode: 14 (X_GetGeometry)
  Resource id:  0x3e0000c

Turning off the 3D acceleration removes the error but also disables 3D capability.

The VBox.log (attached) has many instances of

OpenGL Warning: Trying to switch contexts when the attribute stacks
 weren't empty.  Currently, this is not supported.''

I originally thought that  this issue was the same one, but my BIOS tell me that the Intel switching feature is disabled.

For additional discussion and previous troubleshooting, see  here.

If it helps at all, I've also encountered 3D issues in my Win7 guest on the same host.

Could you check whether the rendering issues are fixed with VBox 4.3 and 4.3 Additions?
At least the first warning should be fixed most likely, while the second warning might not affect you.
