Application not starting when OpenGL is enabled



  • Re: [RasPi2] Application not starting when OpenGL is enabled

    I have the same problem as described above. The MM does not start.

    > sh run-start.sh
    
    libGL error: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information
    MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information

    Launching application.
    
    

    And I have not a PIR Module installed too. The MM is absolute new installed and still nothing configured.

    Does anyone have an idea why it does not start?

    Thank you in advance



  • @klinge I think the appilcationstarts but on server mode only at least thats what it was doing on my case…go on a different computers webbrowser and type your mirrors RaspberryPi IP address and :8080 as the port number http://raspberrypiIP:8080 and see what you get.

    I did not find a solution to it i just took OpenGL out of the equation and it works fine

  • Module Developer

    Try this
    npm start — —disable-gpu
    is - -(dash twice.) I’m not sure disable or disabled. Try both.



  • Thank you for your advice. I will try it on Monday



  • I tried both. …disable-gpu unfortunately does not not bring any improvement. So I took OpenGL out of the equation and it works.
