Hi,

thanks for the reply. I indeed do network rendering. I'm using the official
network rendering plugin of Blender.
It allows to set a master server, that coordinates all the rendering
effort. Then you set slaves that do the actual rendering and connect to the
master. Then, from a blender instance set to client, you can send render
requests to the master and that then distributes it around to the slaves.
I have some GPUs sitting around that I want to attach to x2go servers and
use them as slaves.

So you run at least 3 instances of blender with these 3 different roles.
The configuration in Blender for this cannot be done on the command line so
far (the render script is still marked as experimental) and for this I need
to start up blender with the interface, which I cannot.

I did setup some .blend files that are set on master and slave to run these
via the command line, but that no longer works for some reason. It might be
that the config got changed, but I cannot even get into the GUI to check.

The funny thing is that before I had the ATI card in the X2go server, it
worked flawlessly. The GUI rendering was not fluid, but pretty usable.
Now that I installed the proprietary drivers on it and X is running on the
server (a strange requirement in order to use GPU rendering at all),
blender segfaults.

I would be interested in the rendering script that you might have, but I
won't be able to use it if I cannot set the configuration on the server to
use the right compute device, and so far it looks like blender, as GUI
program does not offer the full configuration options on the command line.

Thanks,

Markus
