OPENGL: Crashing on updateScreen

Reported by: lordhoto Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Ports

Game: Beneath a Steel Sky


ScummVM trunk r54830
Arch Linux/amd64 g++ 4.5.1
SDL/OpenGL backend

When OSystem::updateScreen is called from a different thread (like a timer callback or the like) the OpenGL graphics code will crash. This is because the OpenGL context is not shared between threads, thus all OpenGL functions relying on a context or resources will cause crashes.

A good candidate of testing is the SKY engine. Just start up BASS (CD) and watch the Intro. When the old man will start talking ScummVM will crash.

Here is a backtrace:
