Hi ,

I am doing LSB Certification Test on My System (x86_64 system Sandy Bridge).
While Doing Manual Test Celestia, I got following error:

sh-4.2#  /opt/lsb/appbat/bin/celestia
freeglut (/opt/lsb/appbat/bin/celestia): OpenGL GLX extension not supported by
display ':0'

sh-4.2# glxinfo
name of display: :0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
sh-4.2# glxgears
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual

Also, lspci show following info about VGA:

I already open Bug in LSB Bugzilla:

Could you please let me know what more packages or drivers are required for
  OpenGL GLX extension support ?

  Thanks & Regards
