Thanks for the t-shirt but…where comes it from?

I’m currently using the stable Second Life Viewer on Windows (that is, 1.13.3 (2) Jan 30 2007 15:34:24 release).
My avatar doesn’t usually wear shirts, but after I logged in I found myself wearing a nice t-shirt:


Watching it better, I discover that this t-shirt is actually using screen_last.bmp, the snapshot that the viewer automatically takes when you logout:

Compiling Second Life First Look on Ubuntu Edgy using BUILD=releasefordownload

Filed under: Linux — Signore Iredell @ 1:25 am

Today I managed to compile the Second Life viewer on Linux using the BUILD=releasefordownload scon option… first time after many tries! I extracted the resulting .tar.bz2 package and the First Look viewer is running right now, apparently without particular problems.

Working around a llmozlib-related error, I commented out lines 126-147 and 194-195 in indra/SConstruct .

I also changed indra/llcommon/llpreprocessor.h as suggested in the sldev mailing list: at line 54, change

Then I followed the same steps I wrote in the previous post.

Feedback from other Ubuntu / other linux distro users is welcome!
