NVIDIA driver and paraFoam
Hi Foamers,

NVIDIA Quadro driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-310.19) breaks the ParaFoam (3.14.1). ParaFoam or paraview does not start and gives an error segment fault. The problem related to ParaFoam which is part of the OpenFOAM-1.6-ext version and work fine with the earlier driver (for example NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.64).

If somebody find solution for this problem I am very pleased with the hear about it.

Greetings Pekka,

I did a bit of searching and it looks like my first guess probably won't work (i.e., rebuild ParaView).

The error has been reported at least in these places:
I think updating ParaView to 3.98 might fix the problem!
