Linux and UQM 0.5
« on: February 19, 2006, 10:11:31 am »

Fedora Linux, being my poison of choice, I went to the
Fedora Extras website. Alas, they don't have a binary
install of UQM 0.5 yet. I'm stuck between writing to
them to complain at this obvious over-sight and
just compiling from source.

I'm thinking both!

I think that quite a few specially packaged UQMs are far behind... I remember somebody saying that they had just downloaded 0.2 or 0.3, but I forget what distro. Undecided

One guy using Ubuntu said he'd just downloaded 0.3,
but was trying to compile the (then) new 0.4.
Alas, our beloved UQM has slipped from the main
stream eye of Linux land.

If your favourite Linux flavour has been neglecting UQM, you could always propose to maintain the package yourself.

I've been in touch with the maintainer of Fedora's UQM package.
I'm told it has been updated for Fedora 5, which isn't
out yet. People using older versions of Fedora will
have to upgrade manually or get Fedora 5.

Maintain the package myself?!?!? Dear lord man, have you
seen the requirements for contributing packages to
Fedora? lol. They want everything except a blood sample.
It took me longer to read the "Requirements" page than
it took to download, compile and install UQM on my machine.

By the way, it looks nice. Version 0.5 is a nice step toward
a finished product.

Yes, 0.5 is great work. I like the new scaler, it is a significant improvement and doesn't create any slow downs or anything on my machine.

So what is the next goal for the project? Art support?
