[campcaster-support] 64-Bit Campcaster Version?
  • Hello,



    I'm new to Campcaster but am considering using it at our college radio
    station (Tufts University, WMFO 91.5 FM Medford). I am currently running a
    64-bit version of Ubuntu 8.10. Since my computer conforms to the AMD64
    architecture, the i386 packages currently available for Campcaster will not
    install. Is there a 64-bit version of the software available, or are there
    plans to make one available soon? Alternatively, is there a good tutorial
    for compiling Campcaster manually that I could use to create my own 64-bit
    version? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.



    Sincerely,

    Andy Sayler

  • Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your interest in Campcaster.

    I'm sorry that I can't personally be more of assistance on the question of
    an x64 version (I've only got a 32-bit machine), but in theory it should
    be the same as the steps for the 32-bit version.

    I've made packages for the 32-bit version, and the first step is to
    install the development environment, as described on this page:

    http://code.campware.org/projects/campcaster/wiki/DevelopmentEnvironment

    I'm pretty sure that for Ubuntu the 64-bit packages have the same names as
    those in the 32-bit version, so everything should be the same.

    Please note, however, that we haven't been able yet to get a version
    running under Ubuntu Intrepid, only under 8.04 LTS "Hardy". So it would be
    necessary at this point to install Hardy.

    Once you have the development environment installed and running, the next
    step would be to create the packages according to the package release
    process documentation page, which is here:

    http://campcaster-doc.campware.org/release.html

    Please let me know how things go; we'll be more than happy to host the
    packages if you're successful in making them.


    Best regards,

    douglas

  • Hi there... did you have any joy with a 64-bit version of Campcaster?

    I am also running Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, and am very keen to look into Campcaster but cannot find the 64-bit architecture files.

    Help appreciated
  • Hi John,

    We haven't had anyone come forward yet with 64-bit packages. (Come on, community! I know you can do it!)

    In the meantime, the fastest way to get Campcaster running on a 64-bit machine is to set up the development environment version.

    The instructions are here: http://trac.campware.org/campcaster/wiki/DevelopmentEnvironm ent

    Once you get that running, we'd really appreciate it if you could try to make packages yourself for others. The instructions are here:

    Hope this helps,

    AMD64 binary packages (also suitable for Intel64) are available from the 64 Studio repository, as detailed here:

  • Daniel, this is great news! This is probably the fourth most-requested item on the support list. You just made lots of 64bit folks out there real happy!
