Gazebo crash, core dumped, likely graphics card driver incompatibility

Hi all,

I have installed Gazebo v1.5 following all instructions. I am running Ubuntu 64-bit 12.04. My question is identical to the question asked by @treanorj here .

The reason that I am posting this as a new question is that

  1. The subject of that thread is unrelated and the question is asked in the comment section.
  2. I have some follow-up problems not addressed there

When I run 'gdb gzserver' and 'gdb gzclient' in different terminals, I get a segmentation fault in the gzclient terminal. Upon bt, the output is :

The answer from @hsu , in the referred question, was that it might be an incompatibility between openGL and ATI proprietary GPU driver. I am indeed using a ATI Radeon card with proprietary drivers.

I have some problems changing the driver to see if that would work:

  1. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on a iMac 11,1. People who have installed this configuration would know that during installation, one occurs several graphics drivers issues (sometimes requires plugging a parrallel monitor, and then installing the driver from the internet). Changing the driver might mean that graphics fails completely on reboot. Needless to say, I am hesitant to try this unless it is the only way forward.
  2. I was unable to find any "free" drivers for ATI M98L [Mobility Radeon HD 4850] installable on Ubuntu. I know this is not the "perfect" forum to ask this query, but I would be grateful to anyone who could point me to the right place for the driver?

Is it certain that given my symptoms, only the driver could be the problem? Is anyone else running Gazebo with a ATI Mobility Radeon?
