Interesting. I see they are not releasing a compiled version. I wonder if install all the requirements for linux, devtoolset, libs, specifical QT version, python… and so on could break something for flame.

To be hilarious wouldn’t it? Autodesk releases a open source version of RV that breaks its own product.

I have a test machine available with Rocky, but don’t know how to compile for Linux.

The documentantion seems precise and well explained for all plattforms. But all those pre-requisites scare me :face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth: And by the way, for centos 7…: :eyes:

One of my most favorite @friendlyape quotes was “You just have to compile the host binary yourself”

Sounds like he would know :wink:

Haha! I stand by that quote :slight_smile:

I had a quick look at the repo and the instructions here: GitHub - AcademySoftwareFoundation/OpenRV

At a glance, It’s relatively gnarly as the linux instructions aren’t plug and play for Rocky (i.e. I’m not sure what packages are contained within devtoolset-9).

I’ll give it a whirl, though

Brave man :scream:

I used to keep a second ssd with a “B” installation of centos/rocky… I had to get rid of that disk. But maybe a VM with vmware… I also will give a try

I use VMs all the time as throw away sandbox dev environs.

Ive compiled it for mac, centos and windows.

the windows build is the most insane had to do a clean windows VM to build it , i have not had a chance to try my centos build on rocky but it probably just works.

there are still anplethora of bugs, like network play looking for adsk version numbers instead of the openrv version numbers.
