[RasPi2] Application not starting when OpenGL is enabled



  • Hello. I recently installed MagicMirror2 on my Raspberry Pi 2.
    I installed it via the bash install script and I use the most recent node.js/npm binaries from their website. Installation and everything went smoothly w/o/ any errors, and everything looked nice.
    Then, I’ve read in the github wiki that electron will generate lots of load on cpu, and that I should enable OpenGL via boot config text file or raspi-config.
    I’ve tried out both methods, and there seems to be no problems, except for MagicMirror not showing up. Here’s a console output:

    > magicmirror@2.4.1 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > sh run-start.sh
    
    Starting MagicMirror: v2.4.1

    Could anyone help me please?



  • I have exactly the same issue. 😞

    Any idea on what to do?



  • @markusbe Ok, I checked the locks and found out, that the MMM-PIR-Sensor module got an error message, it was build against another node.js version. A npm rebuild and npm install did not resolve the problem. I disabled the PIR Sensor in config.js, did an sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade, and now my MagicMirror is working again. But I still have to figure out what happened to the PIR-Module.



  • I don’t have the MMM-PIR-Sensor, also, node is up to date. Wonder whether it has to do with system upgrades…
