2022-10-17: This problem should be fixed with our current software stack. The workaround is not required any longer.
When trying to start a gui application like gvim, you get an error message:
levante6:~$ gvim Couldn't open libGL.so.1: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
A probable reason¶
Your system does not support openGL forwarding over X11, and levante does not have the backup openGL library in its library path.
How to mitigate¶
Load the mesa openGL library on levante:
spack load mesa gvim
