Weird Problem with ParaFoam via SSH
I ran into some weird SSH/X11 issue when trying to run paraFoam through SSH from my Vista machine at home. For some reason paraFoam installed on my lab workstation (paraview-3.8.0 with OF-1.7.x) refuses to work though SSH showing the "segmentation fault" error message (it works on the workstation itself when I was in the lab earlier), while the paraFoam installed on the lab server (paraview-3.6.1 with OF-1.6.x) works fine through the SSH connection. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the x11 setting on my side or a badly installed paraview client on my work station, but for now I have to transfer all my files to the server (I'm running tests with OF-1.7 to see if I should switch everything over from 1.6) and postProcess from there. Any thoughts?
Interesting... ParaView 3.6.1 works over ssh -X but 3.8.0 doesn't...
Personally I've always had problems with Putty+Xming... Xming tends to crash after its been working for a while, at least with me.
The only two possibilities that come to mind (using remote technology and without using Linux) and that should work flawlessly are:
AFAIK, there is also another possible explanation, aside from the different ParaView versions: the graphic cards you are using in the workstation and in the lab server aren't the same type. For example:
Thanks for the reply, it appears that the problem I'm having is caused by the second possibility that you suggested. The server was running with intel graphics while my work station was running on ATI HD 5xxx series, and the hardware was recent enough that I was having a hard time finding a working video driver for OpenSUSE 11.2. Hopefully the problem will go away after I upgrade my workstation to 11.3 later this week.
