Release candidate (or right now actually PPA test build)

Postby joepal » Mon Feb 29, 2016 9:28 am

As you've seen mentioned here and there in various comments, we're nearing the release of 1.1.0. Because of this, I'm revisiting and updating the build routines, which have been left without any particular love for quite some time now.

The first build to finish is the ubuntu/deb one


I've just finished uploading a release candidate of 1.1.0 to launchpad (https://launchpad.net/~makehuman-offici ... human-11x/), so any ubuntu user will be able to get it with the two quick commands:

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:makehuman-official/makehuman-11x
sudo apt-get install makehuman


The build is available for all ubuntu versions in the span 14.04 (trusty) to 16.04 alpha (xenial). It's been tested on xenial. Other DEB-based distros might have to add a few more commands to enable PPAs, but I know this is possible in debian at least. Your you can simply download the individual deb files and install them with dpkg.

Windows builds will follow shortly, while rpm and osx builds might lag a bit behind.

Anyway, if you're an ubuntu user, it would be very helpful if you tested this and reported any possible glitch that should be stomped out before 1.1.0 is released properly. If you now use the deb file from nightly, it will be replaced by using the PPA version. But it should end up looking pretty much exactly the same.

If you do the above, you'll get further releases in the 1.1.x series automatically via apt-get upgrade.

Note that the PPA also stores -dev versions of the packages, if you want to get access to raw targets etc. See https://launchpad.net/~makehuman-offici ... human-11x/ for more info.

As noted by jcpalmer... You also need to update in there. So

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:makehuman-official/makehuman-11x
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install makehuman

If you already have the nightly deb installed you need to do this before attempting any of the above commands:

Code: Select all
apt-get remove --purge makehuman-unstable


(in the best of worlds this shouldn't be needed with a proper package definition, I'll fix it for the next RC).
