Need some dedicated testers.
« on: August 12, 2013, 05:04:10 am »
for QOrbiter.

To be a tester, i require that you
*Have linuxmce installed.
*Have the target hardware.
*are willing to spend some time giving feedback.

The software to be tested
*QOrbiter for Android x86 devices (all 2 of them?)
*QOrbiter for Android Tablets
*QOrbiter for Android Phones.
*QOrbiter for Kubuntu / ubuntu linux

There will be no standalone pi version as I plan to work on following phenigmas work on creating the MD.
All Android devices must be Android 3.0 or later. This even rules out my phone at the moment. The reason for this is that I cannot provide media playback to devices earlier than this...for now.

I will be asking you to test Qt4 and Qt5 variants for these platforms. The skins will be in various stages of complete, there will be tons of ui bugs. However I feel that it is at a point where it needs to start meeting real world people.

For linux machines, I would _prefer_ nvidia graphics cards or even intel. Not so much ATI but if you have ATI bring it. I have two ati boxes which are being a pain in the video acceleration department.

Lastly, this is NOT testing for putting QOrbiter as an MD.
Thanks for reading this and please only volunteer if you have the time. My main goal with this thrust is to get a more universal version on the Android market. People have very mixed results.

Thank you.

Releases can be found here:
*Android: http://docs.langstonball.com/view/Android/
 Setup Instructions for Android.
 
Code: [Select]
 wget http://tinyurl.com/qx5bbfw -O /tmp/setupQorbiter.sh
 sudo chmod u+x /tmp/setupQorbiter.sh
 sudo /tmp/./setupQorbiter.sh

*Note- tiny url used, but you can always see the download address in the console.

*Linux-X11: http://docs.langstonball.com/view/Linux-x86/
 Setup Instructions for X11 (Very Unrefined!!)
 *untar
 *go into directory
 *./qorbiter-4.8.3-core-gl
 ** add -s for fullscreen

 A note about linux version. it will be in heavy flux over the next few weeks. I intend to add a setup.sh and some other things to make it smoother (especially on my bandwidth!) Right now all the skins and everything are all in one package.

*Now there is this for the setup scripts http://docs.langstonball.com/view/Setup/
*One is for preparing your core for android.
*One is for setting up qorbiter on an x86 based machine.

More coming soon as I bring other parts of the build factory online...
Good hunting :)

I would also add I would like to get a person with a MAC to generate builds for MAC as I dont have one, but I would require that you could commit to a new build every week at least.

Do Mac builds work? If they do, I can provide a builder for that, running OSX 10.6.something.

I'm interested. Have the ASUS EF201, HTC One, and HTC One X.

Gearing up to have a baby, so a little busy with "nesting" right now, but I usually have some time starting around 10:30PM EST.

I understand. I have a little langston arriving in December. I can give you an email address so you can email problems you find. I still appreciate your patience from round one of this :)

Hey ....
currently my core is out of service because the power supply is broken. Will get a now one by tomorrow.

Devices i can help/test with:
- MacBook (new), Qt SDK installed (almost clean install of MacOS 10.8), should be ready for building qOrbiter on Mac
- Android Tablet - ACER Iconai A210
- Android Phone - HUAWEI U9510E

I'm glad to help, but i'm not the most skilled guy around regarding this. ;-)

Cheers,
ochorocho

Would love to help out. I have no children on the way (that I know of). My devices include:

HTC Desire HD - Jelly Bean 4.2.2
Advent Vega - Honeycomb 3.2
x2 Ubuntu + fluxbox machines - netbook running 11.04 (no longer supported, need upgrading) with intel graphics, desktop running 12.04 with nVidia graphics
Joggler - does that count as a x86 device?

Cheers,
Matt.

Yes. It does. The device uses EFI for its boot firmware, but it does indeed count as an x86 device.

Count me in. I have the following:

iMac x86 running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard which also dual boots to Ubuntu 13.04
Nexus 7 - Cyanogenmod 10.2
2 off market 7" android tablets running android 4.0
Desktop PC running Ubuntu 13.04, Fedora 19, and Windows 8.1 preview
Laptop PC running Windows 8
Laptop PC running Ubuntu 13.04, Mythbuntu 12.04, Fedora 19, Windows 7, WIndows 8.1 preview
10" Archos 101 multimedia tablet running android gingerbread - cyanogenmod
Fully functional ( except incoming calls on the stinking asterisk (insert swear words here) )
3 Raspberry Pi's running xboxmc, and pidora, set up with berryboot, for times I feel like a change.
1 Raspberry Pi running raspbx for pbx server (see angry outburst above  ;) )

And now I have real DSL internet, so I am no longer limited to the constraints of satellite internet bandwidth hell.

Regards,
Seth

Quick note: Go and test the versions you can test on your devices, and report back your findings. golgoj4 already linked where you find the versions.

Thanks.
