Installation on remote Linux (RedHat 7.7) machine


I have downloaded the latest Paraview version (ParaView-5.8.0-RC2-MPI-Linux-Python3.7-64bit) on my remote Linux machine.
However I get the following error when I try to open the executable.

ERROR: In /home/buildslave/dashboards/buildbot/paraview-pvbinsdash-linux-shared-release_superbuild/build/superbuild/paraview/src/VTK/Rendering/OpenGL2/vtkOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx, line 578
vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow (0x4776790): Unable to find a valid OpenGL 3.2 or later implementation. Please update your video card driver to the latest version.
If you are using Mesa please make sure you have version 11.2 or later and make sure your driver in Mesa supports OpenGL 3.2 such as llvmpipe or openswr.
If you are on windows and using Microsoft remote desktop note that it only supports OpenGL 3.2 with nvidia quadro cards.
You can use other remoting software such as nomachine to avoid this issue.

Generic Warning: In /home/buildslave/dashboards/buildbot/paraview-pvbinsdash-linux-shared-release_superbuild/build/superbuild/paraview/src/VTK/Rendering/OpenGL2/vtkOpenGLState.cxx, line 1380
Hardware does not support the number of textures defined.

Could someone please help me resolve this?

Thanks and regards,

Which remote solution are you using ?

In any case, mesa should do the trick :
paraview-mesa paraview

Thanks, that works!
