I’m trying to run the nvidia nsight graphics on my Mint machine (read further below, to see full machine specification). It starts fine, my program connects, but then the errors start.
First, when I start the capture the HUD overlay is not useable most of the times. I had a few working starts, though.
Second, when I start the capture and try to “resume” the program execution, it often crashes, without any message
Third, not all opengl api calls/ events are shown in the overview. I do, for example, have 4 calls to glDrawArray, but only two (one of which is not by me, but QT) are displayed.
I noticed, that when one of these problems is gone, all of them are. So they seem to be related to each other.
Since this is a big part of nsight graphics, I can’t imagine, that it’s a bug; however, I don’t see what I’m doing wrong, so maybe you can help me there.
