OSX El Capitan

Hello all,

I have done what I was afraid to do: I updated to OS X "El Capitan" a few
days ago, and updated my Radiance version to the latest as well. So far I
can say that

1. multithreading seem to work... it does not freeze, at least. I have not
done any timing tests.

2. It compiled, even if it gave me the "there were some errors" message...
it has worked fine so far.

I have one concern, though. I THINK I noticed that I need better parameters
than before to get the same results. Can that be? This is just visual and
based on "what I remember from before".

I am posting two pictures of results and parameters, so you can judge by
yourselves.

I'd be concerned about the "...errors" message. Something either didn't compile, or wasn't copied to the proper location, are the two most common causes for that message at the end of the makeall script. As for the parameter concern, it's hard to say since we have nothing to compare your results to. Good news about the multithreading, Greg was pretty certain he'd nicked that issue with this commit:

...the more testers we have, the better though!

Hi German

I just want to ask about software (program) you used to generate the pictures you attached, the results’ grid looks nice.

Thanks

Khalid

Ditto to what Rob said. If you get a "There were some errors" message, that means something didn't compile. If you re-run "makeall install" you will see immediately which program(s) were a problem. You can send me the output of this second run off-list and I'll see if I can sort it out.

Cheers,
-Greg
