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 MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information Starting MagicMirror: v2.5.0 Loading config ...

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
npm start — —disable-gpu
-(dash twice.) I’m not sure
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.
I have the same problem. When OpenGL is enabled the application freezes at launching and I must unplug my pi from power and plug it back. I even tried to update electron to a newer version but I got another error there so I end up disabling OpenGL again.
node serveronly) instead
@sean Thank you for your fast reply. I’ll give it a try as soon as I get home and see how it goes.
Are you using pm2? I was having same issue, and was able to resolve by following pm2 setup process.
OpenGL causes nothing but problems on the Pi I had to go back to legacy, full GL caused locked up the Pi causing black screen from the start of the MM, Fake GL caused MMM-voice not to work, so had to go back to legacy and all problems above gone
