Subject RE: [Builds/Jenkins] Help and advise needed
Date Tue, 10 Dec 2013 19:12:15 GMT
There is a utility in pixel bender toolkit directory called "sniffer_gpu.exe" that check the
presence and version of OpenGL:

Console output on my laptop is below:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Utilities - CS5\Pixel Bender Toolkit 2>sniffer_gpu.exe
Device: 0058A9F4 has video RAM(MB): 512
Vendor string:    NVIDIA Corporation
Renderer string:  NVS 4200M/PCI/SSE2
Version string:   3.0.0

OpenGL version as determined by Extensionator...
OpenGL Version 3.0
Has NPOT support: TRUE
Has Framebuffer Obeject Extension support: TRUE
Completed shader test!
Return code: 7

Maybe we could temporarily modify the build to run this utility and show the output on the
b.a.o vm.

I don't think we actually know the cause of the problem.  I am going to continue to spend
cycles to try to find out though.

It would be nice to have an alternative to builds.a.o.  I'm not sure if it will cost Om money
to run a builds server.
