    Cadence waveform viewer display error Reply
     To whom it may help, we are using cadence virtuoso6.1.4 with science linux 6.

    it was always fine with these combination in past year, until last week , there was an auto update for the secience linux 6,.

    After update, the waveform viewer window always shows a automatic rotate. Furthermore, from CDS.log, we can find a libGL error, which is list below:

     

    libGL error: failed to load driver: nouveau

    libGL error: Try again with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose for more details.


     

    We have checked the packages

    mesa-libGL, mesa-libGLU, libxp, glibc, libxt, libxi, libxrender, libxext, linxtst, gcc, ksh, xorg-x11-fonts, elfutils-libelF

    all of them are updated to most recent version.

     

    Can anyway tells us what else we can do to sovle this annoying issue.

     

     A whole CDS.log are attached in below as well.

    I don't know what  you mean by "automatic rotate", but this shows the perils of using an unsupported Operating System.

    Anyway, the best would be to move to IC615 which is a supported version of the tools - and it's not using Java for the waveform tool (the problem you're seeing is a Java bug by the looks of things, related to Java's support of openGL, at a guess). "mesa" is a system for openGL emulation...

    If not, you could try doing this:

     setenv CDS_WAVESCAN_OPENGL "-Dsun.java2d.opengl=False"

    before starting virtuoso - this turns off OpenGL in Java when used from the waveform tool - there were some issues at times with how it behaved (not the problem you're seeing, but this might fix it too).

    Regards,

    Andrew.
