I've noted that im flying over the dark night, and the sunny sky over me :) yeah, u guessed im on rh7.2 linux... i have mesa 3.3 ... is already know what's causing the ausence of landscape? any solutions?


I had the same issue on RedHat 7.3. I guess you get a warning message like:
Warning: important GL extension GL_EXT_texture_env_combine missing

To solve the problem, I compiled and installed the last release of Mesa. Then I reinstalled the drivers of my video card (a GeForce 2 Go) and recompiled and reinstalled NeL (or at least the NeL OpenGL driver in code/nel/src/3d/driver/opengl).

I don't know if the trouble come from Mesa or the nvidia driver. The NeL OpenGL driver calls glGetString(GL_EXTENSIONS) to get the list of available OpenGL extensions. But actually, only a few of them are returned (run glxinfo to get the available extensions). As far as the nvidia driver replaces the Mesa binaries, I guess the driver does matter. But it is not free so we cannot know what append :o(

Have a nice day,
