the recently posted patch on the croquet-developer list fixes this problem.

Hi,

http://impara.de/~jens/glx_bug.diff [^] is a patch against
platforms/unix/vm-display-X11/sqUnixX11.c of
http://www.squeakvm.org/unix/release/Squeak-3.9-8.src.tar.gz [^]

that are no steps, but there is a readme of how to build the vm.

I found a fix for the ubuntu 7.04 / croqet problem. The problem for me was that there was no link to libGL.so but there is a link to libGL.so.1 and apparently croquet uses both.

One way to fix this is to add the link
"sudo ln -Ts /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/ibGL.so"

Another way to fix this is to change the Croquet.sh commenting out the line below and adding the other line.
# make libGL.so link if necessary
#if [ ! -x /usr/lib/libGL.so -a -x /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 ] ; then
if [ ! -x /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 ] ; then
