Yes, it it nightly build that says that it is rc2:
Version: (5.0.0-rc2-dev-720-g9704891c8), release build
libcurl/7.54.1 OpenSSL/1.0.2l zlib/1.2.11 libssh2/1.8.0
Platform: Windows 7 (build 7601, Service Pack 1), 64-bit edition, 64
bit, Little endian, wxMSW
wxWidgets: 3.0.3 (wchar_t,wx containers,compatible with 2.8)
OpenCASCADE Community Edition: 6.8.0
Compiler: GCC 7.1.0 with C++ ABI 1011
But anyway, I just wanted to give it a try so I chose that
relatively complex board for the test.
As my production machine is W7, I tested it on W7…
I will install debian on my ancient I5-2500K/ATI5830 and will test
This is on the RC2 Development branch. However, RC2 has not yet been released.
That commit signature is from early Saturday, May 12th. There have been 16 commits on the same development branch since then. I suggest installing a later build and see if that problem has been resolved. If not, file a bug report.
I just installed it on my dual xeon / 40 GB RAM / some entry level Nvidia graphics card desktop PC
and I have to confirm, that the CIAA-ACC board works there.
OS is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.
So it seems that the problem lies most likely somewhere in my Lenovo 531 notebook.
It is equipped with i7-3632QM processor and Intel graphics (no accelerated addon Nvidia or ATI card)
and 12GB RAM.
Thanks all for help and suggestions.
BTW anyone tried to zoom in/out that on that board?
At the certain level KiCad is not much responsive, even accelerated…
It helped to minimize number of visible layers though…,
My graphic card is GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of RAM (which is entry level card)
My system is dual X5690 Xeon with 40 GB of RAM and “not so slow” (550 MB in both directions) SSD.
Except the graphic card, there isn’t much to upgrade…
Do you think that it would improve KiCad’s responsiveness?
OpenGL 4.6 and GLSL 4.60 are now supported by all the latest NVIDIA general release display drivers
So, although my driver wasn’t outdated, I installed the very latest driver
and based on the nvidia sentence above, I should have opengl driver installed as well.
But the nvidia control panel doesn’t mention a word about opengl.
It says something about directx 11.0.
Nevertheless, how and where can I select that KiCad uses opengl drivers?
In KiCad application? In some text config file? In registry? In display driver config?
By selecting the canvas “modern with acceleration” (F11).
But this canvas automatically switches back to “modern fallback” if there is some problem with opengl. So you would most likely want some test tool to see if opengl does indeed work on your system.
