I have an application that ran flawlessly in Wine 1.3 in Maverick. However, when run in Natty under Unity, I get the following error:

X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  136 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  27 (X_GLXCreatePbuffer)
  Serial number of failed request:  1703
  Current serial number in output stream:  1704

...and then Unity crashes. Is there anything I can do to make this application work?

Does this issue occur when you run the Wine application in Ubuntu Classic - make sure that no Compiz Visual effects are enabled i.e. set to None not Normal/Extra –  fossfreedom May 1 '11 at 20:58
@foss: I haven't tried that. –  Nathan Osman May 1 '11 at 21:03
Still experiencing this problem @GeorgeEdison? –  jrg Aug 10 '11 at 17:09
The GLX opcode hints that you have an Intel graphics adapter. So, I think you do not have PBuffer support. You can check this by running glxinfo - the glx server version string should return >= 1.3 for pbuffers to be supported. There is a support thread around this issue here: lists.freedesktop.org/archives/intel-gfx/2009-July/003381.html You could try forcing software rendering: LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 Let me know if this helps and I'll make an answer. –  appas Nov 4 '11 at 14:14
This cannot be solved unless you tell us what is the application you are trying to run. Also can you please tell us if changing from Unity to Unity2D makes a difference? –  Bruno Pereira Jan 26 '12 at 17:10
