Linux [FIXED] xbmc 12 fails to start on intel i845G debian sid
Problem is xbmc 12 [all versions] crashes immediately upon startup on intel i845G [yea, I know it's old].

v11 works fine!

This happens on 2 intel GPU systems here [1 desktop, 1 laptop] but does not happen on a much newer ATI GPU machine where xbmc 12 works well.

I believe problem rests somewhere between xbmc 12 and opengl.

Terminal shows:
Quote:xbmc.bin: swrast/s_renderbuffer.c:588: map_attachment: Assertion `srb->Map' failed.

xbmc crashlog error shows:
Quote:ERROR: ResetRenderSystem() GL_MAX_TEXTURE_IMAGE_UNITS_ARB returned error 1280

Crash occurs even if I nuke my ~/.xbmc directory so I know it's not plugin related.

xbmc 12 will start if I first force opengl to always use software accelleration by issuing
prior to starting xbmc, but it runs terribly slow.

I know intel i845G is old....and not supported, but I am able to play 720p on this old POS and would like to continue to use it if possible.
