Component versions for ParaView-5.5 ?

To use ParaView 5.5 on CentOS 7.4, I downloaded the official binary of stable version v5.5.
When I started it, I got a message below and it does not start.

Your OpenGL drivers don’t support
required OpenGL features for basic rendering.
Application cannot continue. Please exit and use an older version.


OpenGL Vendor: VMware, Inc.
OpenGL Version: 2.1 Mesa 17.0.1

I think that probably some issue happened around GL, glsl and driver,
and also I think(hope) if I set up appropriate versions of them, ParaView-5.5 may work.

I could find the versions of ParaView-5.4.0 at:
it says:

  • Qt5 5.8.0
  • mpich 3.2 (Linux only)
  • Mesa 17.1.1 (Linux only)
  • OSPRay 1.3.0
  • Python 2.7.3 (Windows); 2.7.11 (Linux)
  • numpy 1.8.1

Would you kindly please tell me the appropriate versions of such required components for the ParaView-5.5 ?

Best regards,

Your VM’s OpenGL drivers don’t support the required features. You can use the binary’s Mesa implementation by passing --mesa on the command line.

Hi Ben,
Thank you for your rapid support.
now I see --mesa works fine.

Thank you.
