After getting fed up with issues I was having related to OpenGL and Catalyst drivers, I decided to upgrade my GPU and this time I went with Nvida. Now all my problems are behind me right? Not really.

 

When I try and run this basic program I get a segfault. It seems to happen at the first call to a GL function other than glGetString or equivelent. In this case, it occures at glGenVertexArrays. It only happens if I use a core profile context. If I use a compatability context, everything works. Edit: Checked the pointer for glGenVertexArrays and it is null. Is this a driver bug or maybe a GLEW bug?


#include <GL/glew.h>
#include <GLFW/glfw3.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#define GLSL(src) "#version 430 core\n" #src

void key_callback(GLFWwindow* window, int key, int scancode, int action, int mods)
{
    if(key == GLFW_KEY_ESCAPE && action == GLFW_PRESS)
        glfwSetWindowShouldClose(window, GL_TRUE);
}

GLuint create_program(const char* vertex_source, const char* fragment_source)
{
    GLuint vs = glCreateShader(GL_VERTEX_SHADER);
    glShaderSource(vs, 1, &vertex_source, NULL);
    glCompileShader(vs);
    unsigned int fs = glCreateShader(GL_FRAGMENT_SHADER);
    glShaderSource(fs, 1, &fragment_source, NULL);
    glCompileShader(fs);

    GLuint shader_program = glCreateProgram();
    glAttachShader(shader_program, fs);
    glAttachShader(shader_program, vs);
    glLinkProgram(shader_program);

    return shader_program;
}

const char* vertex_shader = GLSL(
    layout(location = 0) in vec3 vertex_position;

    void main()
    {
        gl_Position = vec4(vertex_position, 1.0);
    }
);

const char* fragment_shader = GLSL(
    out vec4 frag_color;

    void main()
    {
        frag_color = vec4(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0);
    }

    glfwWindowHint(GLFW_RESIZABLE, GL_FALSE);
    glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MAJOR, 4);
    glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MINOR, 3);
    //if we set GLFW_OPENGL_PROFILE to GLFW_OPENGL_CORE_PROFILE 
    //instead of GLFW_OPENGL_COMPAT_PROFILE the program will 
    //segfault at line 98, call to glGenVertexArrays
    glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_PROFILE, GLFW_OPENGL_CORE_PROFILE);

    GLFWwindow* window = glfwCreateWindow(512, 512, "OpenGL", NULL, NULL);

    if(!window)

        glfwTerminate();

    }

    GLenum glewError = glewInit();

    if(glewError != GLEW_OK)
    {
        glfwTerminate();
        exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
    }

    printf("OpenGL Version: %s\n\n", glGetString(GL_VERSION));

    float position[] =

    };

    unsigned short indices[] = 
    {
        1, 0, 2,
        3, 1, 2
    };

    GLuint vao = 0;
    glGenVertexArrays(1, &vao);
    glBindVertexArray(vao);

    GLuint index_buffer = 0;
    GLuint vertex_buffer = 0;

    glGenBuffers(1, &index_buffer);
    glGenBuffers(1, &vertex_buffer);

    glVertexAttribPointer(0, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, 0);
    glEnableVertexAttribArray(0);

    GLuint shader_program = create_program(vertex_shader, fragment_shader);
    glUseProgram(shader_program);

    while(!glfwWindowShouldClose(window))
    {
        glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);
        glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, 6, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, NULL);
        glfwSwapBuffers(window);
        glfwPollEvents();
    }

    glfwDestroyWindow(window);
    glfwTerminate();
    exit(EXIT_SUCCESS);
}

For glGenVertexArrays, try setting glewExperimental = GL_TRUE before calling glewInit. And glGetString is not in the core profile, so you can't use it.

 

Edit. I read some stuff wrong.
