How can this configuration error be resolved on my openSUSE system?

Pass the --passive-mesa parameter to configure.

Replying to frank:

Would you like to support build configuration without passing the parameter "passive-mesa"?

comment:3 Changed 8 years ago by frank

That parameter is normally not needed, only on dedicated hosts where the test application in configure crashes. My assumption is that these crashes come from buggy host drivers.

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by elfring

Does the test application contain open issues?

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by frank

Why don't you check this yourself? Just have a look at the configure script, it is very easy to understand.

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by elfring

I have tried a few more updates. - I can not trigger the segmentation fault again now.

It was surprising that the execution of the script function "check_mesa" showed unexpected behaviour.
