I’ve been searching high and low for the animsys2 branch compiled, but with no luck. And I’ve also tried to find what I would need for compiling it myself with Fedora Core9 64bit. I’ve found several docs about how to compile it for Ubuntu, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of people using Fedora in the Blender community.
Anyhow, if anyone could help out with one of the two I would be very happy.
a linux64 compiled version of the Animsys2 branch (that works with FC9)
a guide for which packages I need to be able to do svn checkouts with FC9
I would imagine you would just have to do the rpm command to get the build deps and then just build it.
For svn checkouts just ‘rpm install svn’ or whatever… Not too sure how to do the rpm thing anymore since Fedora just annoys me so I don’t use it and I haven’t used Redhat since version 7.2 or something like that.
All the programs are (pretty much) the same between Fedora and Debian/Ubuntu with some strange naming differences here and there that you might need to figure out but the basic theory of getting your package manager to install the build deps should keep the pain to a minimum.
 after another read of my own post i figured it might mean, you’ll have to type all the development tools(compilers) & libraries where theres the “Development Tools” “Development Libraries”, would make sense. [/edit]
[edit2] so, the compilers might probably be gcc and either gcc-c++ or just g++ (not sure witch).
after that you’ll need to install all the other dependancies:
and I wouldn’t know, so after installing the “Development Tools” “Development Libraries” see if your gui package manager will list it as installed, if not then see if you can install it from there separatedly.
in fedoras case, though, I’m really not much help though, and I hate it with passion, becaused of its stupid package manager.
that did the trick, I think my mistake was that I tried to convert the ubuntu guide. So below is my FC9 x86-64 guide (with the help of all of you). Could use some more information, but I need to animate now
become a super user with the correct environment variables
always good to have a updated system
yum -y update
install the dev tools that are needed (and some extra ones to make sure)
I will, it just was late last night and I had to get up early to get the kids to school and daycare I’ll try and clean it up this weekend and post a more detailed one here. I still haven’t checked if everything compiled well (though the quick tests I did it worked fine).
That’s the plan, because I really need Euler rotations.
