(Almost) all development is done on linux but it is really hard for us to deliver a binary page. Therefore we just pool and will support up to three distribution. If anyone knows a good other way to deliver binary packes please let us know.

How about a statically linked binary (without dependencies) in a simple .tgz archive? This should work on most systems.

We can not link everythink staticaly (e.g. GL) but a _almost_static_linked_ binary should work at least for the simple player. But a package manager would really help to install the server and demons. I have to look at the debian/ubuntu structure first ...

Hi IGD, IR~!

THanks for the great announcement and great software!

At our labs around Virginia Tech we are running principally Fedora for our CAVE and walls and  Ubuntu on some walls.

What will be required for the cluster version (besides OpenSG)?
Is that release scheduled for Aug?

we would be happy to test it along the way on our CAVE cluster.

thanks and best regards,

Hi nicholas,

Do you know if you can run/install packages from Fedora on RH or RH on Fedora ?

What will be required for the cluster version (besides OpenSG)?
Is that release scheduled for Aug?

We will release a simple server and client in Aug. That is right. The server and client management system is still open but you really don't need.

we would be happy to test it along the way on our CAVE cluster.

What kind of tracker are you using in your cave?

best regards,
