I am using a Intel GMA 4500 on my Dell Vostro 1015. Recently migrated to Ubuntu 12.04. The code compiles successfully but on running gives the above error.

After perusing through some more posts, I installed fglrx as well. After that, the error which I get is: libEGL warning: failed to create a pipe screen for i965 At this stage glxinfo and glxgears perform as they should.

When i did a system reboot, all these seem to be gone. I get the following message when I try to run my program, or use any of the above( fglrx, glxinfo, glxgears):

X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  136 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
  Serial number of failed request:  20
  Current serial number in output stream:  20

I did, went through some other posts as well but they were more AMD oriented and I could not get it how could they be useful for my Intel drivers, if possible.
