Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

TerraGear BOINC

Elgaton investigated a variety of alternatives for building a portable Linux TerraGear version (which can be run under BOINC).

In a nutshell, the main issue is finding an old distribution that we can compile SimGear and Terragear on, having:

  • a sufficiently old version of glibc (so that the build will run on most Linux distributions), but
  • a sufficiently recent version of GCC (>= 4.8.1, the first one which supports C++).[1]

So, the (most straightforward) solution, for now, is:

  1. attempting to build the latest GCC on the BOINC builder VM;
  2. compile SimGear, TerraGear and all required libraries with it (the executables will probably be linked with RPATH instead of statically to minimie the size of upgrades). [2]
