I find that I have to start Maestro with -SGL option, otherwise Maestro terminates with segmentation fault errors. I am also having some graphics problems.

Segmentation fault
Maestro: Error while running Maestro
Maestro: ** abnormal termination **

What might be the problem?

The need to use -SGL usually indicates a problem with your graphics driver. You should install the latest stable version of the vendor's graphics driver. (Note, the very latest driver is not necessarily a stable version, so you should use one that has long-term support.)

If you are trying to run on an unsupported Linux platform, you will have to install a supported Linux distribution. See the Supported Platforms page for information.

If you are running a 32-bit version of Maestro (Suite 2012 or earlier), a segmentation fault may be seen when certain 32-bit libraries are missing from a 64-bit Linux installation, such as libXmu, libXpm, libXaw, libGLU. You should install the missing libraries in the 32-bit version (the package name should include .i386).
