    Linux

    I propose to use this thread to discuss any general Linux-related questions

    For the beginning, on this page you may download last stable version of Ubuntu Linux (the most popular distro afaik) preinstalled with lots of programmers utilities, in WMVare virtual machine format:

    http://bagside.com/bagvapp/bagluxpe.html

    Free VMWare Player you may need to run these VMs:

    ps: he just added 64 bit Ubuntu at my request. just go to http://bagside.com/bagvapp/ and grab it

    I just found that this topic is not anyhow related to the compression. No one word about compression technique or compression program...

    If this topic about cross-platform porting - add some examples. And we shall rename the topic to 'Compression Under Linux', 'Porting Compressors', etc.

    I'm just sure about that we already have a bunch of forums that describe Linux and Linux-related stuff. Anyway, 'Off-Topic' is for free discussion.

    I would better think of an thread like this related to OS X . If someone has access to a mac it's really easy to compile a console program.
    I would like to have an information thread for windows, linux and mac porting with special 64bit instructions fopen64 (they are not the same on every platform as far as I know). And maybe compiler tricks/help.

    RAR for older versions of Linux is available at,
    http://openbsd.vip.net.id/pub/linuxp...1/Console/rar/

    I found a way to autodetect the CPU in the Makefile and pass it as a flag to gcc:
    CFLAGS += -march=$(shell uname -m)

    Sir? If I understand the posting right ->sources<- of RAR (allthough old) are open? Portable to other plattforms?

    Best regards!

    I only know of UnRAR sources having been published.

    The link is a compiled program which works on Linux distributions having glibc 2.3.4 or later and libstdc++ 5.0.6 or later. Rarlab.com publishes an executable for recent distributions of Linux.

    That was my knowledge too And I didn't even find the unrar-sources in that package.

    I was surprised by your above posting, because you talked about a makefile (afaik used for compiling sources) and the RAR-package in one posting. So I merged these two sentences.

    Best regards!

    -march or -mtune should not be left in makefiles (except maybe what I wrote above).
