[Radiance-dev] Re: Re: Radiance 4.0 release

Hi Greg,

I think they are relatively portable. In our typical environment, I normally compile on the old Fedore Core 5 server, but then run on a variety of Linux installations with the binaries served via NFS. I would be happy to tar the latest compiles and upload them somewhere if that would be a help.

Thanks, Jack. Any idea how portable Linux binaries are? Does it make sense to share them with others on the main site?

Hi All,

I just wanted to report that Radiance 4.0 compiled with no problems on the following Linux variants:
    • Fedora Core 5 - yes an old file server but still running strong
    • Ubuntu 9.10 - the only thing that I had to do was install the following packages to get the compile to work smoothly:
        • csh
        • libx11-dev

You could just create a backport of the official Debian packages. Guess its even
possible to use an Ubuntu PPA for that. If there is enough interest, I would
build the packages, too, but I need to know for which architecture and which
Ubuntu version.

Cheers,

Bernd
