@rpavlik
If nothing else, it's quite recent
Alfredo
@alfa256
either the 32bit windows build of the server isn't for 32bit or it's a windows xp problem
but it complains about it not being a 32 bit application
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
windows xp problem
the current builds aren't windows xp compatible, under the theory that presumably most people going for consumer VR will use higher-spec stuff than XP can run
Alfredo
@alfa256
so the minimum spec is windows 7 32 bit ? should that be documented?
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
well, I think technically it's Vista SP1
we're building with the VS2013 standard toolset, not the _xp toolset variant
I hadn't actually seen it fail yet on winxp, that's interesting that it actually did...
I knew the video tracker would, since I used a sync primitive that Vista introduced, but kind of surprised
In any case, you could probably build it from source for windows XP, I just haven't tried using that (because I don't know how far back in the dependencies you have to build with that specific toolset
Alfredo
@alfa256
should the osvr docs main document describe minimum os reqs ?
base linux kernel, minimum windows os
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
Minimum windows OS, probably not a bad idea
Alfredo
@alfa256
i'll open an issue
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
On Linux, it'll run on anything that you can manage to get a compiler to build it on - not really about the kernel. Debian Wheezy's libstdc++ is too old/buggy, so you'd have to upgrade that (so basically get an upgraded gcc with libstdc++) or build your own locally, but Debian Jessie works great.
thanks
Alfredo
@alfa256
well it'd be nice to have a "recommended" rather than a "minimum"
minimum is hard to measure
should recommended be debian jessie?
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
If you use debian, Jessie is a good place to be, yeah
Alfredo
@alfa256
and vista sp1?
recommended minimum
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
Vista SP1 is recommended minimum
Alfredo
@alfa256
good
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
in both cases you could probably make it run on older things if you wanted
Alfredo
@alfa256
yeah the people who know how to do that don't need recommendations heh
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
and by no means does it only run on Debian, that's just what I happen to use
Alfredo
@alfa256
"or equivalent"
i'd say that most end users use ubuntu for games
linux steam version is targeted at that at least
so are gog games
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
yeah, true
Alfredo
@alfa256
what about mac os x ? any info?
Kevin Godby
@godbyk
I’ve only tested it on the latest release of OS X.
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
I just got fed up when their installer stopped being able to deal with my intel SATA RAID at work and so just went right to straight debian since I ended up backporting so many packages, so I don't remember versions come with what.
Yeah, I have no idea - it shouldn't require the latest version of OS X by a long shot, there's nothing exotic in there, it's all code that should have compiled back before my mac died, but I haven't tested it
Alfredo
@alfa256
so apparently the "equivalent" release of jessie is ubuntu 15.04+
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
I know we build on 12.04 using Travis-CI, but that's with a PPA for upgraded compilers and building updated OpenCV from source.
Alfredo
@alfa256
ubuntu 15 is quite old so let's be safe
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
didn't realize that counted as old - what was the last LTS, do you know offhand?
Kevin Godby
@godbyk
Well, 16.04 will be an LTS. So the previous one was 14.04.
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
that's what I was afraid of
Alfredo
@alfa256
old in terms people who use the machine for games
Ryan A. Pavlik
@rpavlik
@godbyk have you tried building it on that? or don't you use the lts?
I'm just thinking that steamvr ships parts of 12.04 IIRC
Kevin Godby
@godbyk
For OS X, I’m sure OSVR probably runs any all currently available versions. (My understanding is that Apple forces updates regularly and they don’t let people lag behind too far.)
Alfredo
@alfa256
yeah i just wrote el capitan
Kevin Godby
@godbyk
@rpavlik I haven’t. I usually run the latest release (i.e., upgrade every six months thereabouts).
Alfredo
@alfa256
tell me if you try in earlier systems and i'll update it
