I am using Fedora 26 PCs and ssh to connect from one PC to the other.
Blender version 2.78c cannot run over a SSH connection, but surprisingly version 2.77a has no problem with that!
When I run blender 2.78c over a SSH connection, the main window briefly opens, but crashes within a second with an error message in the terminal:
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation) Major opcode of failed request: 153 (DRI2) Minor opcode of failed request: 1 (DRI2Connect) Serial number of failed request: 11 Current serial number in output stream: 11
Obviously this is an X related issue, but it's strange that version 2.77a works just fine, but 2.78c does not...
Is this a bug or a new "feature" in the newer version?
