We should keep this thread close to the bug. For meta discussions about OpenGL: I have opened a thread in the Features Section:

Would be nice if you fill this one too ;)

Thanks for looking into this; I'm looking forward to being able to play again on my three accounts, and my wife is looking forward to being able to use her four accounts again.

I also know of at least 3 other alliancemates affected by this who are Linux users.

I fight for the freedom of my people.

Can confirm, game is unplayable; same issue here:

Flickering . . . and every rightclick ingame let the client immediately crash.
Worked fine before patch (2014-02-04).

Ubuntu 12.04
Wine 1.5.0, 1.6.2 and 1.7.11 (same probs. @ll vers.)
Nvidia 8600GT

Yepp, same flickering with Arch Linux and Wine 1.6.x . . .

Re-activated after like 6 years in order to give Eve a go again, read that it worked fine on the WINE App DB.

Signed up on the night of the 4th, sucks to be me.

$17.44 AUD down the crapper (glad I only subbed for a month).

Saw earlier post by a BSD user... so, brought Eve up-to-date on my work cluster..... flickers about same as my Ubuntu gaming box.

FreeBSD 10
Wine 1.6
ATI/AMD graphics (x3)

Until this thread, didn't realize how many Linux/BSD ppl played Eve.
(Figure for every 1 that posts, there's 3 or 4 that don't)

I really appreciate the note CCP Snorlax. Having the same glitchy graphics as everyone else at the character selection screen.

Ubuntu 12.04
AMD Radeon HD 6670
fglrx-updates 2:8.960-0ubuntu1 (cannot get newer versions to work, haven't tried 2:13.125-0ubuntu0.0.1 yet)

Interesting: Running Eve under Intel (Sandybridge) graphics seems to fix the UI (Optimus laptop FTW). Of course the 3D rendering is a complete disaster, as one would expect...

A big thanks to CCP Snorlax for giving this bug some attention. I'm hoping that after tomorrow's patch everything will be back to normal.

It definitely matters - the more the better. Just to show the number of Linux/BSD users out there.

Just re-subbed in time for this bug.
Nearly unplayable.

Thanks for trying to make it work Snorlax.
