I have similar problem with nVidia 340xx legacy driver. I have to set on LEGACY_OPENGL_LIBS cmake variable.

Java int constructor syntax?

Analysing code of GDX LongMap on github , I found strange initialization of a member variable: int tableSize = tableSize(initialCapacity, loadFactor); I haven't found any definition of method tableSize, so tried to search Internet for some kind of specific Java's int initialization, but found nothin...

Re: A reminder to protect yourself from the Coronavirus

Well, now I must disagree. Comparision with per year stats I have made sh ows no reasons for panic nor keeping people at home. If there are such a reasons, they are surely not tied to Covid-19 itself. Outdoor activity is one of the best thinks that helps keeping health I know. Thete is something muc...

Re: Enhanced Celestia (Cel+)

it's a "fan project", in which he will add new spectral classes, both fictional, real and hypothetical Oh, I see. Btw I think stellar classess should be data driven. If Cel+ would implement it, it definitely should be backported to official code. The same with any useful change, fun or no...

Great initiative, but is official repo maintained too bad to contribute there? Why dividing our effort?

Re: Mobile Celestia for Android

I found the cause, I suspect it's related to threading. I used getObjectCompletion for search, which should cause a race if it is called not on the same thread as CelestiaCore's tick? I didnt know Celestia uses threading at all. I thought it uses loop reading messages from a queue provided by OS. N...

Re: Updated stars.dat including Gaia DR2 data (update 2020-10-08)

Here are the Python scripts for generating a stars.dat from the Gaia DR2 data Hi ajtribick ! I tried to read Your script to understand how Celestia index number is generated (for stars outside HIP and TYC) but failed (I'm not familair with Python). Could you describe it shortly? It looks like (from...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated December 30, 2019

How do you generate stars.dat? More precisely, how do you generate main Celestia index numbers? Do you get them from some kind of existing catalogues or generate them from automat? If second case, could you make them packed one-by-one rather than scattered over vast range? I think would be much more...

Re: OW Geminorum, an unusual star system

This unusual configuration poses a conundrum to stellar evolutionary theory, according to Terrell et al. (2003), since it is impossible for the two stars to have formed at the same time Actually, this is nothing unusuall, but standard astronomy have a long way to admit it. Most stars revolve in pai...

So, taking into account multiple confirmations that the very majority of virus' victimes already have had serious health problems, let me be allowed to mention that this situation reminds the importance of healthy lifestyle, which is a real prevention.

As I said, I can't set my rank to admin. Specifically, I can't edit the administrator or developer groups. I think "rank" and "group" are technically independent. Rank is only visible as a text below nick, kind of "honorary title". Edit: Just for test I set Your rank t...

one thing I still can't do - but I think you can - is adding the missing developers to that user group. Hm, I changed their ranks, but cannot change group.
