remote OpenGL impossible ?

As the Linux sysadmin in our company, I am posting on behalf of our graphic developer :

we are developing a CAD software using OpenGL 2.0 (it's developed using Java and Jogl) ; locally on a 64-bits RHEL4 with some NVIDIA card the display is correct. I tried to get the display remotely (through ssh -X connection), on RHEL4 32-bits with a GeForce 7600 GS and the driver 100.14.11, and we get errors such as :

"Error: no OpenGL buffer object appears to be bound to target 0x8892"

"Error while compiling a shader : Shader : null"

Do you have any hint ?

Best regards
R. Grasso

Re: remote OpenGL impossible ?
This depends heavily on which OS, GPU & OpenGL libraries you have on the client side when running ssh. You didn't state what you're using, so its not possible to comment. Also, please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log from the system with the problem, along with the output from glxinfo.

Re: remote OpenGL impossible ?
If you bothered to read his post, you would see that he uses:
RHEL 4 on two computers -- on is a 64 bit and one is a 32 bit processor. Since they use Java, that likely means he's running it on x86 machinery (since java on other platforms is really a joke, and nvidia doesn't provide the lastest drivers for Linux on anything but x86's).

He is using the nvidia drivers -- specifically 100.14.11 -- on the client. He did not say what he used on the sever (but I could imagine that it's not important).

There you go -- everything you needed, was right in his original post.

But to answer his question: Yes, it is very much so possible to do remote OpenGL, but perhaps not with nvidia's drivers -- although I have no problem doing this. It might be a problem with jogl or java.

oh well, if much more accurate informations on the client machine can help, here they are (I apologize for cluttering this thread) :

OS: RHEL 4 (RedHat Enterprise Linux)
kernel : 2.6.9-55.0.2.ELhugemem

the OpenGL libraries should be the ones from the NVidia driver, as I did not get any error message during its installation, and did not update xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL (I fell once in this trap, it's enough !)

Re: remote OpenGL impossible ?
Is this error only present when running your application, and no other OpenGL applications?

Re: remote OpenGL impossible ?

So far, glxgears works perfectly - but I would need another OpenGL application requiring shaders so that the test is meaningful - and I don't have/know such applications - if you know any, this could help

Re: remote OpenGL impossible ?
I just downloaded the following demo


from the page

Encelo's Projectz - Programming - OpenGL Demos and Tests

this demo contains shaders

if I compile and execute it locally, it works correctly; as soon as I try to execute it remotely, it fails immediately with the error message :

Missing extensions for OpenGL Shading Language!

so it seems, as I feared, that this operation mode is not available remotely
