Simulation freezes when capturing frames

Postby vanderfreitas » Thu Jun 06, 2019 1:09 pm


For some reason, when I press the GUI button "Capture frames", the simulation freezes and I have to kill the program from terminal.

My video card is:

description: VGA compatible controller
product: Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 2
bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0
version: 06
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom
configuration: driver=i915 latency=0
resources: irq:27 memory:f7800000-f7bfffff memory:e0000000-efffffff ioport:f000(size=64)

Same thing happens when I run it on my laptop, with a NVIDIA card.

Would you know what may be the problem?

Thank you.

It looks like a driver problem, in the OpenGL part. The ARGoS code for capturing frames is based on Qt. I'm not sure how to fix it remotely. I'll have to wait for a student in my university to encounter the same problem to be able to troubleshoot.
I made ARGoS.
