SweetHome3D On Raspberry Pi - Part 2?

I can't seem to find my original post of putting SH3D onto A RaspBerry PI and other Pi System Computers. The problem was thought be to be back then as not a strong enough GPU/CPU and not enough RAM.

I can understand that - the models at the time only had a max of 512MB of RAM on a Single Core CPU/GPU. But now with the R-Pi 2 and R-Pi 3, there is 1GB of RAM with a Quad Core CPU and a "stronger GPU."

But it still did not run. It took a long time but I figured out the problem. The Weezie/Jessie Debian Linux OS fr the Raspberry Pi's do not have an OpenGL Graphics Library. Until OpenGL comes to the Raspbian Linux, SH3D will not run on the Raspberry Pi systems.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation recently released some Experimental OpenGL drivers for the Raspberry Pi GPUs. Lets hope this works well enough to have SH3D run on the Raspberry Pi!

In this release we are shipping an experimental OpenGL driver for the desktop which uses the GPU to provide hardware acceleration. This is turned off by default – if you want to enable it, you can find it in the command-line version of raspi-config, under Advanced Options->GL Driver. Due to memory requirements, this will not work on Pi 1 or Pi Zero boards – it is solely for Pi 2. (raspi-config will only allow it to be enabled on a Pi 2; be warned that if you enable it on a Pi 2 and then move that SD card into a Pi 1 or Pi Zero, the Pi will not boot.)


You just either need to download the latest release of Jessie Raspbian or update the Jessie Raspbian you may already have...

Lets hope it works.

Good luck to us all!
