[Solved] APP 1.078 - Is not working - Disable OpenGL please ( LINUX/MESA BUG ON older ATI/AMD graphical chipsets)
Could you please, prepare APP 1.078 version with disabled OpenGL for Linux distros?
New version have a same problem with OpenGL and AMD GFX cards like we have in thread APP 1.077 not run on Kubuntu 18.04 LTS
BTW It looks like the thread with opened bug with bugzilla stuck and nothing is happening 🙁
Hi Pekdar @pekdar,
I can't simply disable OpenGL for Linux because on most configurations it does work. The bug is on old ATI/AMD graphical chipsets with the latest Mesa drivers.
You will need to grab a version with OpenGL disabled here, I did build it 😊 :
Hi Pekdar @pekdar,
At the moment, the bug has been reported, but I can't solve this. The bug could even be in the Linux Mesa drivers. We will have to be patient on what the OpenGL library developers find.
Thanks for APP version with disabled OpenGL, I appreciate 🙂
Can you recommend some graphics cards for APP with use under Linux? Or it can be any graphics card that has no problem with OpenGL initialization bug like few AMD graphics cards has?
I've heard that you have a plan to use GPU chips for some calculation task with APP ?
I have an idea / proposal to easy implement with quick improvement, to resolve future situations like we had until now with affected AMD graphics cards.
Could you implement a function checking does APP is run with argument f.e. "-opengldisable" in command line?
The result of working would be running APP in CPU mode. I think, this could be helpful a lot and user will have a possibility to fast solve his troubles with OpenGL, in case of AMD affected cards or other reasons.
