PowerVR SDK on Ubuntu 16.04 in VirtualBox


#1

Hi,

Can I run the powevr sdk examples on ubuntu 16.04 which is running in Virtual BOX?

I tried with the latest SDK and it gave error.

Failed to compile fragment shader.
InitView() failed with pvr error ‘Unknown Error’

Thank you.

Regards,
Vikash

Hi Vikash,

Do you have 3D graphics acceleration enabled on the VM? Our experience with VirtualBox is that the support for OGL is quite poor and our OGLES emulation layer have a lot of difficulties to run. We do not recommend it.
