Are those drivers installed correctly? Looks like they're provided by the intel-dri and mesa packages on archlinux: $ pkgfile i965_dri.so extra/intel-dri $ pkgfile swrast_dri.so extra/mesa Those errors, and that the 5.x releases are working on other archlinux installs, make me think this is a configuration issue with this specific machine. The X log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log may have some clues if there's a problem initializing the driver support needed for the newer paraview. I'm not convinced this is a bug in ParaView just yet -- the 5.x versions require different OpenGL contexts than the 4.x versions, so it may be that something is not quite right for the newer contexts. Have you tried building from source and setting VTK_RENDERING_BACKEND to OpenGL (instead of OpenGL2) in cmake? That would build paraview with the older backend used by the 4.x line, and might work better for you. The only other idea that comes to mind would be to grab the development branch from git and use 'git bisect' to identify the commit that introduced the functionality that's failing on this installation: Getting the sources from git: https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/blob/master/Documentation/dev/git/develop.md Git bisect: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4713088/how-to-use-git-bisect Hope this helps, Dave _______________________________________________ Powered by www.kitware.com Visit other Kitware open-source projects at http://www.kitware.com/opensource/opensource.html Please keep messages on-topic and check the ParaView Wiki at: http://paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView Search the list archives at: http://markmail.org/search/?q=ParaView Follow this link to subscribe/unsubscribe: http://public.kitware.com/mailman/listinfo/paraview
