Linux port of Alex Kan's?
« on: 30 Apr 2008, 04:09:58 pm »
I'm seeing very positive feedback for the new optimized clients over at Berkeley's forums.

Will we see a linux port of them? Especially 64bit?

I expect someone will use the sources, available shortly, and make a Linux port long before I can relearn Linux and it's development tools (Last used Linux for that sort of thing ~1996  :o), Though if nobody beats me to it I'll probably give it a go.

Thanks!
Since Mac Os X is Unix based maybe it's easier to port in Linux than it is in Windows. Maybe what I'm saying is totally wrong.
Keep up the good work guys!

If anyone needs a beta Tester for Linux port Apps, I have *cough* sufficient 64bit Linux Systems available ;)

Please add me to the list too.
I've got a Debian 64bit Q6600 box here that would be more than happy to partake in some testing.

Thanks both,  You're on the list and the Gatekeeper (Gecko_R7) will be in touch in due course.

I also have a 64bit Linux box (AMD 64 X2 , SUSIE 10.3) if you need another tester.
great work on the ports by the way. thanks

Just updated some of my Windows boxes that run SETI to AW, but I've got a Q6600 running Ubuntu (latest) that would be glad to run the new code on Linux when you guys get it working....

Been running SETI since the classic days, so I understand the value of testing new code before it's released!

If that helps anyhow, i could offer one of my linux boxes (T7200, 64bit openSuse 10.3) for testing. It's a dedicated cruncher anyway. Also, if that is necessary, i could put a fresh windows on a spare HDD (for dual boot).

My ubuntu 8.04 32bit running an AMD XP 3000 (sse2)  is available for testing if you need it.

My Q6600 with 64bit Ubuntu and Crunch3r's 6.1.0.64 Boinc client would like to help too :)

Thanks all,
       More data is needed, and Crunch3r is working on more test builds, as are Andy and Raistmer.  There's no rush though, so hang tight.   When Gecko_R7 comes online He'll hopefully see this thread full of willing testers and consider each situation in turn against what we need, make  adjustments, and give some guidance where needed.

Thanks, and glad you could make it. & all that goes for others that come along to this thread after this post.

Hi Everyone,

THANK YOU for your willingness to volunteer for testing duty  ;D

We're still in the process of seeing what we have available & what is still needed.
Rather than open the floodgates all at once, I'd like to gradually add a few testers at a time over the next few days.
This will give us a chance to round-out a representative group w/ different hardware & OS distributions.
A main goal of testing to see how variances/choices in developmental builds respond to different platforms etc.
This will help towards builds that work well for a wider range of platforms and OS combos.

As we add folks to the group, I'll notify you by PM.  Please check back at the boards over the next few days.
If you don't receive a PM, please don't be discouraged  ;).  We may be covered for the moment.
As everyone has seen, these types of things are processes...not events, and you may still yet be asked to help.

Thanks again for answering the call!  :D

Cheers,
Gecko

I've got a bunch of Debian boxes here, 32bit or 64bit.  T7200/T2300 or Athlon64

Hi Hans,
   Sounds like some heavy hitters are coming along, with yourself & crunch3r involved   :).  I hope to see you 'inside'.  Looks like there'll be plenty of kinks to iron out.  Wouldn't fun without that part!

Jason
