PVRShell: Unable to create a context



Can any body help me on this.

When I m trying to run ./OGLES2Shaders its giving following error.

PVR: Loading profile "SGX530"

PVRShell: EGL 1.3 initialized

Exit message has been set to: “PVRShell: Unable to create a context


InitAPI failed!

PVRShell: Unable to create a context

I checked my graphics card its 82G33/G31

I am using gentoo linux.

Thanks in advance



Our OpenGL ES 2.0 PC Emulation requires a graphics card that supports OpenGL 2.0. Unfortunately it seems that Intel only supports OpenGL 1.4 on the G33/G31 chipsets.


Thanks a lot for the reply.

I don’t know what you’re looking for exactly, but here are a few videos of demos running on POWERVR SGX:
