Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I've tried to build the current master on vs 2015 and no go. First, I got 2 build errors. In samporbit.cpp, around line 830, a typo. Win32 needed to be _Win32. In winsplash.cpp, ULW_ALPHA needed to be defined. Then after all files built, I get about 22 link errors. Not sure why but suspect Lau. The ...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I got some interesting results. For some background, I got 2 VM's installed on Tumbleweed. VMWare and Oracle. They are both running windows 7 home premium 64bit. All 3 versions ran on the VMWare with no noticeable difference in performance. I didn't have any problems with the menus in windowed mode ...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I think it looks fine. If a tool were available so the box could be edited, (in a gui), then maybe I'd make the main box a bit larger and maybe make the smaller boxes a bit longer so they could fit additions. Maybe add space between the boxes. The information text box would look better if it were as...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I feel all of your pain. I been trying to get win 7 going as a virtual machine with VirtualBox. It was me against Microsoft and Oracle. I had the issue that Oracle could not see my graphics controller. So I was stuck with opengl 1.1 in VirtualBox. I finally got the right combo of settings and got it...

Re: Testing new commits on openSuse linux

Seemed logical that tests for domain should test domain twice. Like the tests for dir in the following statements. Anyhow, another thing and I know its not a big deal but when I use qmake, fmt is not found even though it is installed. Version 5. I'm not sure if cmake is finding it or not? I dont see...

Re: Testing new commits on openSuse linux

I just did a build of the new commit to master and had a compile error. On line 2483 of celx_celestia.cpp it has the following code. const char *domain = celx.safeGetString(2, AllErrors, "First argument of celestia:bindtranslationdomain must be domain name string."); if (domain == nullptr ...

Re: Testing new commits on openSuse linux

There may have been some updates before the win32 fixes and the last time I cloned the master on either 11/30 or 12/1. But I think the problem was on my system and had to do with file conflicts. I installed this new version of Isis3.6 using an installer package called anaconda. It downloads all the ...

Testing new commits on openSuse linux

While I'm able, I'll build and run new commits on my system. I'm gonna use Tumbleweed to do this. I'll report anything of interest in this thread. Anyhow, I recently built the last 2 commits to the master. The fixes for win32 and the most recent, modifications to celx and fixes. There is a peculiar ...

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

Yeah thats it. Blender used .obj files. Amin8or and Wilbur produced them You could also edit .obj file with a text editor. Not to edit the meshes but the header info. Like cmod in ascii format. Back in the day I used Blender to eyeball placement of models like I showed in the pics above. But as stat...

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

The base model of mars is on the motherlode. The model from the first 2 images is in question. I can't remember how it was done. I think there is a 90% chance that I downloaded it frm the motherlode. I think it was Jestrs. That's still there. The vallismarineris model I think I did through blender b...

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

I confirm that. I switched over to tumbleweed. I also installed glut. So cmake made both celestia-glut and celestia-qt. Before I took out that line glut was about 190 mb and qt was over 200 mb. After glut was 3 and qt was 3.8 mb. Built from the master - the stripped line. Quite a diff. Anyhow I was ...

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

Confirmed. :smile: Works great. Many Thanks. I was just about to post that the trace looked similar to Celestia_QT until it tried to load the dsc file. Then it exited with 1. I was just about to post the only error I get while building. I still get it but it doesn't seem to mater. In file included f...

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

Took a look at the install manifest generated by cmake and the was no celestia.cfg in that list. I seen it in the top cmake.....txt ...

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

As far as I can tell, Celestia tries to choose the most recent version or highest number. Leap doesn't provide lua53. It provides 5.2 and 5.1. I'm having trouble getting a shared lib that's built on my system to work, Lua doesn't provide shared libs and doesn't build shared libs by default. The make...

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

The lua fixes seem to work fine but Celestia built on (at least) my Leap system, still has issues that may go beyond lua. I was trying to build lua 5.3 to install on my Leap 42.3 system. After the fix or after I go closer with my configuration of lua, I got celestia to compile but I'd get link error...

Hi chandra, Thanks for the links. They weren't available with yast.
I did some further testing and all seems well.

Correct. :smile: Almost no warnings. Is there still a reason to have a thirdparty/Eigen?

Re: Trouble installing Celestia on Linux

OK, This is interesting. I applied your changes and it builds fine. With qt creator it still sends a message that it found lua53. But the compiler output for every file built showed a DLUA 0x050100. So it looks like 5.1 was used. Also, the Spice test passed in config tests. On Leap 42.3, which is wh...
