[Solved] headless pyrender offscreen render Error: OpenGL.error.GLError: GLError(err = 12296,

Error description

When running vibe, the CentOS server without display is used. When using pyrender for off screen rendering, errors are reported OpenGL.error.GLError: GLError(err = 12296), as follows:

Ubuntu: https://pyrender.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install/index.html#installmesa Use OSMesa to offscreen render.

It is more convenient to use · CONDA · to install osmesa as follows:

conda install osmesa

Note: after installing osmesa, reinstall pyopengl, otherwise an error will still be reported, as follows:

pip uninstall pyopengl
git clone https://github.com/mmatl/pyopengl.git
pip install ./pyopengl

Specify PYOPENGL_PLATFORM before running the scriptis osmesa , as follows:

# demp.py
import os
# os.environ['PYOPENGL_PLATFORM'] = 'egl'
os.environ['PYOPENGL_PLATFORM'] = 'osmesa'

Note: os.environ[‘PYOPENGL_PLATFORM’] = ‘osmesa’ should ideally follow import os to ensure that PYOPENGL_PLATFORM is changed to osmesa before using render, or you can explicitly specify os.environ before using render specifically [‘PYOPENGL_PLATFORM’] = ‘osmesa’.
