I downloaded SuperTuxKart onto Fedora 23, and it says that it requires OpenGL 3.1 or later and that my current copy of OpenGL is too old. I presume that there's a way to update it, but I have no idea where to start.


Edit: My graphics card info: VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

This should not happen if you installed SuperTuxKart using the Fedora package. Did you?

Yep, typed sudo dnf install supertuxkart.

Make sure that everything else is up to date with dnf update --refresh, to start.

Did. It didn't work. Maybe somebody forgot to update it in the package repository? My current OpenGL install: mesa-libGL-11.1.0-2.20151218.fc23.x86_64

We can use dnf repoquery to find out exactly what requirements supertuxkart expects:

~]$ dnf repoquery --releasever 23 --requires supertuxkart | grep -i gl
]$ dnf repoquery -C --releasever 23 --whatprovides ""
~]$ dnf repoquery -C --releasever 23 --whatprovides ""

Short answer; why no provides information about your video card?; if you have a Intel with driver i915, is very bad; you can't use DRI3, DRI4... you can update mesa with a copr repository but at your own risk...


dnf copr enable decathorpe/mesa-git && dnf update
