Client/server version hash mismatch

I use a workstation in my job that was recently upgraded to Debian 12 (bookworm). Paraview got upgraded to version 5.11.0. After the upgrade, I downloaded the Windows binaries on my own machine (same version), but upon connecting I obtain the client/server version hash mismatch. Any ideas what the problem might be?

Edit: Even downloading Linux binaries in WSL2 and running it from there gives the same issue.

please share the exact error you are having.

Paraview got upgraded to version 5.11.0

How was this version of ParaView installed ? Using debian package manager ?

This is the message I get:

(  26.410s) [pvserver        ]vtkSocketCommunicator.c:486    ERR| vtkSocketCommunicator (0x56394cafc180): Client/server version hash mismatch.

What is the output of pvserver --version on debian and paraview --version on your windows ?

 pvserver --version
paraview version 5.11.0

ParaView version on Windows is 5.11.0 as well. Could be a packaging problem?

Edit: If I use the binaries from on the workstation the connection opens successfully.

It could be that the Debian packages (which I assume you’re using) are using some other VTK. There’s really not an easy way to tell though.

Yes, interestingly even the python-vtk repo package does not actually work, giving issues upon import. I will try to bring it up with their maintainer. Thank you!
