Using the Freescale Ubuntu image that includes the gpu-viv-bin-mx6q package, I am receiving a segmentation fault while trying to run one of the OpenGL ES 2 sample programs provided by mesa.


I downloaded the demo application mesa-demos-8.0.1.tar.gz from:


in the mesa-demos-8.0.1/src/egl/opengles2 directory, I ran:


gcc -g es2_info.c -lEGL -lX11 -lGLESv2



This gives me a segmentation fault with the following back trace:
