I am trying to use accelerated graphics with KiCad 5.0.0. I am prompted with a ‘Minimum OpenGL 2.1’ dialogue.
Under further investigation and reading previous posts I assumed this could be resolved perhaps by calling the libGL.so directly. However I think this is not the case and this does not work. It seems that KiCad is trying to call the open-source driver directly:
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
AFAIK this is only available to the system if AMDGPU is loaded. The PRO drivers do not seem to use this and it crashes out. Is this hard-coded into KiCad, or is the error coming from the driver itself? Can it be resolved.
I would consider reverting to the fully open source drivers, but then I will not have an OpenCL support which I need for other software.
