Ah, this is rev. 26999 and many earliest from last three months

Sorry, but what is "SB17", and where can I get an Haiku version of it?

comment:3 by Hubert, 13 years ago

Seventeen Or Bust version for R5

comment:4 by umccullough, 13 years ago

Last time I ran SB17 on Haiku was over 2 years ago on a PIII and it ran fine (albeit slower than expected).


Unfortunately SB17 is closed source and the version available for BeOS is actually older and doesn't support some newer processors properly. Newer versions required proper pthread support, and so they had dropped the BeOS port entirely.

I recently tried to establish interest in an updated Haiku port, but their developers are pretty busy and not terribly interested it seems:

I will test it on a P4 2.8ghz here shortly and report my findings as well.

It seems to be working for me on hrev29071.

I had to edit my sclient.conf and set the username and team before it would work properly though.

then I ran:

$ sb ./sclient.conf

See attached screenshot :)

Now that I think about it - I believe that version of sb17 crashes on newer processors - apparently the 2.2.0 version of sb17 had some bugs that crashed on newer amd64 processors, etc, which were fixed in 2.5.0 - but there was never a 2.5.0 release for beos :( What processor are you using?

Also 2.5.0 had some performance enhancements that would have been nice...

As I said, I've been lobbying for an updated version for quite a while now - but nobody has seriously responded.

Sic, I have Athlon64 X2 4600 processor. I think, when we have fresh OGR 25 client we don't watch mercy of SOB 17 team :P :D That OGR-26 used recently started SSE... ;)

comment:9 by umccullough, 12 years ago

I can try to test on an athlon x2 soon to make sure, but I suspect the 2.2.0 sb17 client is simply busted on newer processors and that it is not Haiku's fault.

I think we can probably close this as invalid for now.

Perhaps if/when the sb17 project devs choose to update the client to support Haiku, we can re-evaluate this.

Tested this on my core 2 duo and it's working great there as well.

I think we can probably close this as invalid now - it's not likely a Haiku issue at all.

Thanks for your investigation! And good night ;-)

Interesting. I run SB17 today in Haiku rev 29079 GCC4 (hybrid) this work great too.

Hmm, this bug should not have been 64bit related in the first place
