System requirements

Prerequisite - minimal system requirements

Sphinx can run only on Linux 64 bits, more precisely on the following distributions:

  • Ubuntu 14.04 (with kernel version 3.19 or higher)
  • Ubuntu 15.10
  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Debian 8
  • Debian 9

A minimum of 1 GByte of storage is necessary to run Sphinx.

The PC must support OpenGL in version 3.0 or higher. To check your version, you can type:

$ glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"

Matching the minimal system requirements is not sufficient to enjoy every simulator features. This is particularly true if you let the drone front camera enabled (the default) or if you want to access the simulated drone WiFi from a FreeFlight application on your smartphone. See the recommended system requirements just below for more information.
