Yes, of course. I didn't follow all of the nvidia posts and I don't own one to reproduce. Can you make a proposal what to include in the known issues, please?

To the best of my ability (might need revising)
edited, to add forum discussion links:


OS affected - Linux, Ubuntu (and Ubuntu based distros) might affect other distros (not know at this stage)
Hardware affected - nvidia graphic cards
Problem - Freecad (tested on 0.20) crashes on loading, sometimes loads and crashes almost immediately afterwards, sometimes opens for a short time but soon crashes.
When running from terminal, might report following:

Code: Select all

./FreeCAD_weekly-builds-26720-Linux-Conda_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage
FreeCAD 0.20, Libs: 0.20R26720 (Git)

Solution - sometimes just updating nvidia drivers works, but the best/proven working option (if possible) is to change to "Use Software OpenGL" in Preferences.

Yes please; that's what I do if useful additional information can be found there.

Thanks, I added it to the known issues (with some minor layout adaptions).

Is this an issue with the precompiled versions too? Do you know if a solution is in sight?

As @looo is fully aware he won't be using Python 3.10.x in the Conda recipe and the LibPack will be staying on Python 3.8.x for the foreseeable future to ensure Windows 7 still works.

As far as a solution all I can do is point to the Github issue link posted above, that's as much as I know.

Please check the top of the Known OS specific issues . I hope it is only a transient issue.

Note that it's not just self-compiled versions, packages from rolling release distros that have python 3.10 in their repos are of course built against that. See: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=65263

I added a generic " ... and packages created by other distributions". It's not much more than making people aware of issues.
