hdrgen on ubuntu

Greetings. Is anyone aware of a compiled version of 'hdrgen' that works under Ubuntu? I downloaded Greg's 'Linux' version placing the binaries in the appropriate bin directory but no joy.

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Chris,

I think you are asking me, as I'm the only one with access to the full source code outside of Dolby... And no, I haven't compiled it under Ubuntu. I haven't compiled under any recent version of Linux in fact. I don't know how cross-compatible binaries are. It's a pain due to all the external library dependencies (OpenEXR and TIFF mostly), but I could try recompiling it on the Lubuntu image I have under VMWare. Can anyone tell me how likely that is to work as an executable?

-Greg

I've been able to compile (or at least run it) using Ubuntu. I believe
the troubles I had earlier were related to a 64bit Ubuntu distro.

Don't know if that's your issue, but I think I ran into that before and
couldn't figure out the specific dependency that was missing (an older
version than what I had available).

Hey Greg,

For whatever it is worth I have had no problems compiling the latest Radiance on the latest Ubuntu (after adding a few extra packages).

I was able to roll a fresh ubuntu using vmware player in a very short amount of time. Not sure of the status of hdrgen at this point, I hope this helps.

Chaps,

I've recently had the pleasure of rebuilding my 64bit Fedora system from scratch due to a failing hard disk. Got hdrgen working, too.

hdrgen is a 32bit application, so simply doing a
# apt-get install libtiff
on a 64 bit Debian-based system will only pull the 64bit Tiff library. So make sure you have all the 32bit deps on your 64bit system. The two co-exist quite happily.

The only bit of 'hacking' I had to do was to soft-link libtiff.so.4 (what comes with Fedora) to libtiff.so.3 (which is what hdrgen is linked against).

Chris, if you can expand on 'no joy', I might be able to give you a few pointers.

Cheers

Axel

I managed to compile hdrgen under Lubuntu using VMWare, so if anyone else wants a copy, let me know. I'll send one to Axel since it's a little more recent version of the code (I think).

Hi Greg,
I am going to install hdrgen, can I copy the compiled hdrgen? Thank you very much.

At http://anyhere.com/ there are a few versions of hdrgen you can download. We don’t have one for Windows, unfortunately.
