Bumblebee & OpenCL/GL: extension "NV-GLX" missing

Hello everyone,

For a few weeks now, I haven't been able to run any program involving OpenGL/OpenCL interoperability. I haven't changed my program, so I don't think it is the cause for the errors. It used to work perfectly fine, but when I run it now, I get:

Xlib:  extension "NV-GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

Running Amonako's GLSanity script, I get:

It seems NV-GLX is only available using the secondary display (:8), which is confirmed by my /var/log/Xorg.*.log, where NVIDIA is loaded in Xorg.8.log, but not in Xorg.0.log.

Running my program using:

optirun env DISPLAY=:8 ./VolumeVisualizer

Doesn't produce the error, but I also can't see my program.

So here I am, a little bit puzzled by all of this. I haven't had any issue so far with bumblebee in the two years I've had this laptop, and I am not sure how to solve this. Any help would be more than welcomed.

If helpful, I would be happy to paste the content of systemd's journal corresponding to the stacktrace of my program failing, as well as my Xorg.*.log files.

Re: Bumblebee & OpenCL/GL: extension "NV-GLX" missing

Maybe this is relevant [VGL] ERROR: Could not open display :8 ?


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Bumblebee & OpenCL/GL: extension "NV-GLX" missing

Then it seems the question is why nvidia wants to use display 8 now.

Do you have any *.conf files in /etc/X11/ or /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d ?
(if so, please post them )

xorg logs and xrandr output would be useful .

I though nVidia always used display 8 in an Optimus setup? It always has since I have used it.

I have a workaround:

optirun env DISPLAY=:8 ./VolumeVisualizer &
sleep 3
x11vnc -display :8 &
sleep 3
vncviewer localhost

Re: Bumblebee & OpenCL/GL: extension "NV-GLX" missing

Sorry I'm coming back a little bit late, thanks for your answers.

I had a presentation to make so I used a temporary and ugly workaround (but would be more than happy to fix it for good).

What I did is that I edited my mirrorlist file to start with:

Server=https://archive.archlinux.org/repos/2016/04/01/$repo/os/$arch

And downgraded my whole system to last month. The good thing is that that single thing made the interoperability work again, which proves an update changed that. I'll be happy to go back to an up-to-date system tonight when going home from work. But before I do, is there any useful things to log before I do (like the .conf files in /etc/X11 mentioned by Lone_Wolf) to compare them with the new files after the update?

Re: Bumblebee & OpenCL/GL: extension "NV-GLX" missing

Sorry, I had presentations those past weeks where I absolutely needed the program to work so I didn't update anything and stayed with the working configuration.

However I'm done with those for at least a few weeks, so I'll have more time to work on the issue, hence I'm bumping this topic.

I've reverted back to an up-to-date system and still have the issue. I made sure to uninstall any vulkan-related package, as I didn't know if it could be responsible for the issue, but sadly I still have the same problem.

Here are the different files asked by Lone_Wolf:
Xorg.8.log
Xorg.0.log
.conf files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
xrandr output

Thanks a lot for your workaround cmiarni, sadly my program spawn several windows and it doesn't work that well sad

I'm thinking another solution would be to tell OpenCL to specifically use display :8, but I have no clue how to do that.
