I resolved it doing:
Code: Select all
find / -name libglx.so


It should output many results,
I then did a stat of each result, in order to
find all the symbolic links to 'libglx.so'.
If a file is a symbolic link stat should output the file as
Code: Select all
File: `/usr/bin/file' -> `../bin'

and write out that it is a symbolic link.
Then I removed each link (with the rm command).

Code: Select all
eselect opengl set ati

After all this worked for me.

What does this actually fix?

I've got a problem with an ATI card but I'm not sure whether to do this or just post a new thread about it.

PC freezes with lots of:
*ERROR* radeon_cp_reset called without lock held crash
line continues but not around pc atm with the error
It has a X1600 Pro

Did you update your system?
and which Sabayon are you running?

I'm using sabayon 4.2 x86.
I haven't managed to update my system yet but there's only 5 updates available and from previous experience, 3 are just things like restricted-extras and stuff.
When I can, I'll try installing them but I doubt they'll make a difference

Should I create a new thread for this or try this first?

Since this is an old thread I suggest you to start a new topic,
forum admins will merge topics, if considered useful.
