Hey, psychotron, long time no see. :) In fact, you need at least glibc 2.10 to get it working (I'm afraid I can't give direct instructions on how to upgrade it in Ubuntu, but I'm pretty sure you can do this using aptitude, here's a google query to help you). Unfortunately, it's not possible to have libc statically linked unless you have absolutely no dynamic dependencies (and with this you'll get fairly huge binary, especially the GUI one with half of the Xorg linked in). :(

hi my beloved siberian one... I get source of glibc 2.11, followed install.txt instructions.. succesfully configure it and then I get hanged on "To build the library and related programs, type make'".. but that gives me an error "No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop." but make file is in source directory and I must run it from another glibc-build directory.. can't understand it how to make it... omg how lame am I

edit: isn't there oldie but goldie wxgui version around for 0.7rc1?

I'm not all that technical but have found a possible bug and not sure if it has been brought up already. I have them circled in the image below.

Yikes! Be careful upgrading glibc manually, as it is one of the cornerstone packages. I strongly recommend you to use your system package manager (aptitude, synaptic or whatever) for that process or you could get completely broken system.

Em, well... We killed it in the meantime, thought you wouldn't mind. :))

### Re: LuxRender v0.7RC1 released

hey guys,

I'm still a beginner with luxrender so I often start a render, see how that looks and then quit it, change materials and/or lighting and start again. I noticed, using hdri-images for lighting, that they're transfered (network rendering) all the time, no matter if they changed or not. So I wondered:

Wouldn't it make sense to have the main computer send out the md5sum or some other hash to the clients, let them see if they already have this image and if so, let them use it? If not, it would need to be transfered of course...

The only problem I see with that is that the images shouldn't get deleted on the ServerDisconnect as they could be reused. But then I thought storing them in /tmp (or similar on windows) should do no harm as most Operating Systems clean it from time to time (and most of them not too often, so it shouldn't produce problems with images gone halfway during the render)...

What do you think?

So long
Andy

crazynd, this was already requested and filed in the bugtracker. However, as we are in the feature freeze, don't wait that such functionality will appear before 0.8.

well sure.. after my experiments yesterday I got halfway broken system.. it prompt me now to use some command to remove packages but it want to remove many ones I'm sure I need.. so.. it's definitely time to backup everything and wait for 10.04 stable.. no way out for me now

Em, well... We killed it in the meantime, thought you wouldn't mind. )

yes I know, but I was hoping it's around somewhere backuped to use it if needed badly, now I have one question in mind if this qtgui was good deal if it's so problematic to run... buuuhuhu I can't run new version of my lovely renderer
but who cares.. world doesn't spin around me anyway lecture will be about v0.6
