Difficulty Configuring OGRE for CentOS 7.4 with VirtualBox 5.1.30

Post by davidg » Thu Nov 23, 2017 12:28 am

Hello,
I've been pulling my hair out for a few days trying to produce a vagrant-based VirtualBox VM running CentOS 7.4 to build an application using Ogre 1.10.9. I'm fairly experienced with C++ and CMake, and have used Ogre in the past on Windows platforms, but I am at my wits end over this.

Problem #1: Out-of-source builds fail
If I unzip the 1.10.9 (or 1.10.8 or 1.10.7) sources into a directory, and then do the usual cmake build steps such as:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make
After a long wait, at about 65% done, I get the following error:
"Unable to open file /tmp/ogre-1.10.7/build/Components/Python/../../OgreMain/include/OgrePYTHON_wrap.cxx: No such file or directory"
The error seems to be caused because of the build directory I'm in, as I can do an in-source build (cmake .) and get further.

Problem #2: In-source builds fail differently
Doing an in-source build gets further along but then bombs out here:
[ 67%] Building CXX object Components/Python/CMakeFiles/_OgreRTShader.dir/__/RTShaderSystem/include/OgreRTShaderPYTHON_wrap.cxx.o
/tmp/ogre-1.10.7/Components/Python/../../OgreMain/include/OgrePYTHON_wrap.cxx:422294:16: error: ‘_wrap_new_AnyNumeric’ was not declared in this scope
(initproc) _wrap_new_AnyNumeric, /* tp_init */

Problem #3: Builds without Python won't run
Since both issues above seem related to Python, I tried configuring the build with the python component disabled. Ogre then completes building successfully and can be installed. However, when trying to run a simple application, it crashes at startup using both GL and GL3+ rendering systems.


The full std output with GL3+ rendering system is pasted below:

I'm hoping someone with more experience with Ogre will know what is going on.

Python: which swig version do you use? Our CI uses 3.0.8.

running on top of a VM GL layer is neither a priority nor well tested for ogre.
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Chromium 1.9
you say GL3+ does not work?

For the GL issues: please test with the SampleBrowser first before going for Qt integration. Also provide a gdb strack trace.

Thanks for your response.

Swig is version 2.0.10. We don't have any plans for Python bindings in the near future, though.

Below is what happens when I try to run the SampleBrowser with GL 3+.

Re: Difficulty Configuring OGRE for CentOS 7.4 with VirtualBox 5.1.30

The HW accelerated OpenGL version provided by VirtualBox is 2.1
GL3+ requires at least OpenGL 3.0

That's simply why it's failing.
You can get it to work using pure SW emulation by installing vanilla Mesa (without the VirtualBox guest additions), but it will be very slow.

Perhaps you can workaround the need to uninstall the guest additions (or reinstall mesa after the guest additions have been installed) by setting LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE:

Code: Select all

export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1
in the terminal that is going to launch your Ogre sample. But that will only work if the VirtualBox drivers recognize it.

RendersystemGL should work though. Use 1.10.9 and provide a gdb trace of the SampleBrowser if it fails.

If you do not need Python, just disable it - it is unrelated.

I can get rendering to work, somewhat, with software rendering via the Mesa drivers, but it's not a good experience and won't work for our needs.

I feel like the basic RenderSystemGL should work with VirtualBox's hardware acceleration, but I can't get it to work.

Trying to run the SampleBrowser with only the RenderSystemGL enabled, and with VirtualBox's Chromium drivers with 3d acceleration enabled, results in a crash at startup.

It would seem glXCreateContextAttribsARB is also not provided by VirtualBox, according to googling around.

Isn't glXCreateContextAttribsARB an OpenGL 3.0 functionality? Why is Ogre making an OpenGL 3.0 call when I'm only using the GL Rendering System and not the GL 3+ Rendering System?

Re: Difficulty Configuring OGRE for CentOS 7.4 with VirtualBox 5.1.30

Well, it's more complicated. OpenGL is the API, and to use it we need to interface it with the OS and desktop provider.
In the case of Linux running X11, that interface is GLX.

glXCreateContextAttribsARB is part of GLX, and is not specific to GL 3.0; although it was indeed introduced alongside OpenGL 3.0 nine years ago.

This function got probably used when Ogre 1.x merged the GLX code of all GL implementations (GL, GL3+, GLES and GLES2) into one. I'm not working on 1.x anymore so this is as far as I can help. Paroj may know more.

removing the assert and adding this patch should get you going:

Re: Difficulty Configuring OGRE for CentOS 7.4 with VirtualBox 5.1.30

I'm running across the similar issues with 1.10.12 using OpenGL2 renderer. Guest is Ubuntu 18.04, Ogre is being built inside the Steam's Chroot.

It's a shame that paroj has assigned this as low priority in github as this is a regression. Ogre 1.7 to 1.9 worked perfectly fine in Vbox. It breaks the workflow for most developers in Linux. There are just too many distros out there for us to test on bare metal or KVM. Not to mention, the possible issues on older end user systems (I have about 1-2% of players on OpenGL2 systems... Which means I'll have to support two builds or figure out how to revert to the old GLX support code).

Anyhoo, the linked patch did not fully resolve the issue (It's already in 1.10.x). I changed the default video drivers, and it led into the github issue here: https://github.com/OGRECave/ogre/issues/766 (Which I didn't find a thread for.)

Disabling 3d acceleration support all together makes it work. Similar to issues found in WX: https://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/17595

it just means that I wont fix it. But I am happy to review pull requests fixing it. (its low priority for WX as well BTW)
There are just too many distros out there for us to test
actually it is just Ubuntu(=Debian). Anybody trying to game on something different is basically asking for the pain..

Going a bit off topic, but there isn't a reason to not support a paying customer's distro as long as it meets the minimum requirements. It's fairly easy to do as long as you build against vanilla packages or LSB and rpath what is needed. My previous iteration of my game does that just well. The only reason I am upgrading everything is because of Apple and their lovely habit of breaking everything.

Vbox is needed because I am not a Ubuntu/Debian user. I prefer Slackware, but have been using Arch more lately. But sometimes, customers have silly problems like with Ubuntu's gawd awful DE.

Anyhoo, the work around for VirtualBox is to disable hardware acceleration. If the issue leaks into some of my users, I will look further into fixing it for 1.10.12, and you can get the patch from there. (And if its' too much, I'll revert some of the code back to 1.9's setup). (I've been meaning to move over to VMware anyway, so this may just accelerate the move.)
