Last November I was struggling to run Paraview in a VMWare virtual machine with a Windows 10 guest, and finally solved the problems with the aid of this forum that pointed me to the MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.2 environment variable: Paraview was just running fine!
Now I am realizing that I have “freezing” of the software (not responding any more) and regular crashes.
In the meantime I went from some PV 5.2 version to 5.5 - and from some “googling” I learned that something must have happened in 5.4 regarding OpenGL. This is what “About” is telling me now:
The problem also reminds me to what I can see here:
However the proposed solution (set SVGA_VGPU10=0 in the environment and bring the supported OpenGL version back to 2.1) does not seem to be applicable in the case of Paraview.
Does anybody have ideas and proposals?
Otherwise going back to an older version looks like a possible option of course…
Kind regards, and thanks in advance for any hints and comments!
