Description Lluís Blancafort 2016-10-24 10:31:07 UTC
I am running latest XQuartz2.7.10 (downloaded Oct 24th 2016) on new OS Sierra, and I have a problem launching a quantum-chemistry gui call grid viewer. I run the program remotely and export it to my mac. I get the error log shown below in my remote server.

The program was working fine with previous OS ElCapitan and XQuartz2.7.9. Simpler things like xclock do work with my new setup.


X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  149 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  28
  Current serial number in output stream:  29

2.7.9 certainly did not work (unless you modified it).

I suspect you were using 2.7.8 before the upgrade.

You need to run this for your use case:

    defaults write org.macosforge.xquartz.X11 enable_iglx -bool true
