[vox-tech] debian breakage: xlibmesa3-gl?

the program is a glut "hello world" type program:

   #include <GL/glut.h>

   void cbRenderScene(void)
      // Render Quake III like graphics

   int main(int argc, char *argv[])
      int win_id;
      glutInit(&argc, argv);

      glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_RGB | GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_DEPTH);
      glutInitWindowSize(250, 250);
      glutInitWindowPosition(100, 100);
      win_id = glutCreateWindow("Quaker Oats III");


      return 0;

compiles great.  appears to run correctly but i get this on standard

   libGL error: can't find Glide library, dlopen(libglide3-v5.so) and
      dlopen(libglide3.so) both failed.
   libGL error: dlerror() message: /usr/lib/libglide3.so: undefined symbol:

but this is nonsense.

the libglide3 package is installed on my system; /usr/lib/libglide3.so
is present.  the man page specifically says that /usr/lib is in the
search path for ld.so.   but just to make sure, i put /usr/lib in
ld.so.conf and ran ldconfig.  no dice.


before i file a report against xlibmesa3-gl, is there any reason to
suspect that the report needs to be filed on libglide3 or even ld.so?

i can't think of anything else to try to glean more info.  any
