Description Samuel Mannehed cendio 2018-08-15 12:46:20 CEST
OpenGL applications have stopped working in ThinLinc recently on Fedora 28:

> [tester@samuel-80 Videos]$ glxgears
> Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
> [tester@samuel-80 Videos]$ glxinfo
> name of display: :10.0
> Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
> [tester@samuel-80 Videos]$ totem tears_of_steel_1080p.webm 
> (totem:8748): GLib-CRITICAL **: 12:43:48.133: g_strsplit: assertion 'string != NULL' failed
> Segmenteringsfel (minnesutskrift skapad)

Fedora's own Xvnc seems to work however, it is likely this issue is happening because we are based on such an old Xorg.
Comment 1 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2018-08-22 17:09:45 CEST
Note that this means that desktop environments like GNOME which use OpenGL can't be used at all in ThinLinc.

When I try to start GNOME I get a black screen followed by a number of crash popups by abrt (abrt seems like the only thing working in the session) that says gnome-shell has crashed.
Comment 2 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2018-08-22 17:12:15 CEST
Can't see anything relevant in xinit.log for GNOME sessions that can't be started nor for when glxgears fail in Xfce.
Comment 3 Pierre Ossman cendio 2018-08-28 16:00:40 CEST
Pretty much a duplicate of bug 6177. Fedora managed to screw up the fallback handling in a recent update which caused the issue:


Fortunately that means it is Fedora specific, and should hopefully be fixed soon.
Comment 4 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2018-09-12 10:00:19 CEST
We should no longer need this fallback now since we have upgraded Xorg in bug 5241. I'll verify this along with bug 6177.
Comment 5 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2018-09-14 11:52:01 CEST
Can verify that OpenGL now works on Fedora 28 with the nightly build of the ThinLinc server.
