In this newest release the Basic Shader, Advanced Shader (and below) graphics check boxes are greyed out, highlighting that certain drivers cause crashes. This was working before, however, using the amdgpu driver (amd 7850). Is that indeed correct that it causes crashes with this driver?

I added the cairo binaries from the previous version. That should keep it up for a while. But yes, upstream is dead (last commit was five months ago!) despite what they say at times. What can I say! I have switched to Firestorm, to be honest.

BTW, I can't do the same for kokua, because it comes with its own cairo and harfbuzz. Have you got any ideas?

After upgrading cairo package from 1.14.10-1 -> 1.15.8-2 I get the following output on terminal and singularity fails to start:

Running from /opt/singularityviewer

Downgrading cairo resolves the issue. Upstream is looking a bit dead. Anything you can do to help with this?

Works perfectly. Thanks!

Done. Please let me know if anything is amiss.

Any chance of getting an alpha package with a compatible harfbuzz like you did for the released version?

I have a problem.
When i launch game i always get error "The following media plugin has failed - media_plugin_cef"

I tried to install cef-minimal from AUR but i didn't help

The afore-mentioned merge request was sent.

GordonGR commented on 2017-03-28 11:55

I requested this package to be merged into the singularityviewer-alpha one. Please use that instead.

One comment: For a long time, upstream had stopped issuing Linux versions of the viewer in the "alpha" line, and just issued them in the "test" line; so I had created the singularityviewer-test package. Now they seem to have reinstated the "alpha" line. I will wait until the next update to confirm it, but, if I do confirm it, I will ask the -test package to be merged into this one.
