Hi Blenderistas out there,
just in case, you’re using the fantastic rolling release of openSUSE Tumbleweed, and consider to use a current Blender build, here’s the deal:
zypper ar -kf https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/frispete:/blender/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/home:frispete:blender.repo zypper in blender-git
Based on the packaging work of Dave Plater, I’ve adopted it to git master, added the missing dependencies, cleaned up the spec, enabled everything that is expected from an official blender release, é voila.
Diverging from official buquet, it has embree built in. It might be worth to create/package different cycles packages for the various build options available. BTW: it looks, like CUDA is doing fine as well, after the usual homework is done, of course.
Unfortunately, I’m a Blender noop, my 13 years old son is the Blender guy, here.
But I’m learning… I’m more into compilers, python, packaging complex software projects.
So please bear with me, when it comes to using Blender…
I’m attempting to build blender from git master every 2-3 days, but depending on popularity and demand, other (automated) builds are setup easily.
Hence, feedback is much appreciated.
And remember to have fun. And dance.
