- profit! or at least get some functioning OpenGL packages for your nvidia 8600 GT card
I had bought a new Nvidia 8600 GT card for my MythTV server/player. As this card is not supported to do chromakey for the OSD I wanted to get OpenGL to do the same trick. But I ran into the infamous black screen bug which Mark fixed with his patches. After a steep learning curve I have finally written a tutorial to build your own Mythbuntu packages to fix the error. Aditionaly I had to remove "–enable-glx-procaddrarb" from the configuration as it keeps the error on 64bit systems. And don’t forget to install the latest Nvidia drivers (177 or better).
