Hey guys, thanks a lot for your feedback!
I am an old (Open)SUSE user from 9.3
Similar here, I started with 4.3… The 9.3 was that one distribution, that run longest on many of my systems. Today, I’m using TW mostly everywhere besides servers.
post scriptum I compile my Blender, but having a second chance to download and use Blender is welcome, in particular by users who do not compile it themselves
Well, I beg to differ . I never run any serious project compiled manually. Packaging/OBS sucks at times, but the additional time invest pays off at the first update… Besides all the small details, like stack protection, dependency tracking, jemalloc optimization. Too many details with the potential to break or weaken things.
p.p.s you should
advertise your repository a lot, it is not easy to find it in the midst of other tens of repo
Yes, I know. Will start a new advertising round, when 2.81 is in TW. The OBS search results are, hmm, improvable. OTOH, it forces me to get my builds upstream . What I hate most are crippled builds in the distribution (which scares the interested parties away, and sheds a bad light on the whole project, which is awesome).
Fantastic! Thanks a lot! I myself use TW, my son Leap, so now we can have the same version.
Hehe, and your son is the better Blenderer, I bet! Is he? At least mine is (but he’s using TW as well).
Please let me know, if you find any issues. Testing the Leap versions specifically is much appreciated.
And don’t hesitate to contact me, if you have any ideas on how to improve that builds. The build details are in the .spec files. The blender specs aren’t the easiest to read, though. It is meant to resemble the “official” builds in the most similar way. (Well, apart from including embree and falling back to Python 3.6 for the Leaps, that is…).
While at it, do you use any must have Add-Ons?
