I'm sorry to tell you all that I just discovered that George Pantazopoulos
died last year, at age 29.

During 2007 I did raytrace very little, and didn't use XRS at all, but
recently I started again to use it. Trying to get the latest version, I
found that George site, gammaburst.net, was gone. So I decided to google a
bit to see if he was hanging around on other sites... unfortunately, one of
the first search results was this one:

http://weblab.cs.uml.edu/pipermail/msgs/2007-May/001566.html

I can only but agree with what Kate Tsui says about him: he was a very nice
person, always ready to help me with whatever problem I had with his
wonderful XRS patch, and seems this was his usual attitude with everyone...

It's too late now, but anyhow I want to correspond him by offering my help
to anyone who has problems compiling or running XRS, that is, doing the same
he did for me.

	I never had the chance to meet George for real, and though I only exchanged
with him a (much too small) bunch of mails, I believe he must have been a nice soul...
gone too soon.

	Thanks for what you brought to the POV community, George.

Render In Peace, George.

I found this archive of his XRS page.

http://web.archive.org/web/20070505055558/http://www.gammaburst.net/xrs/

The download links for the XRS server, client and libiqxmlrpc dependency work :

http://web.archive.org/web/20070505055558/http://www.gammaburst.net/xrs/packages/unix/megapov-xrs_core-1.2.1-2.1.1.tar.

   Many thanks, but that one seems corrupted. Anyone out there who still has 
the original package? I've it installed, but it would be nice to have the 
original package for clean installations in other machines.

Hello!

Sorry if this is too much of a newby question.  I am using Ubuntu 8.10, and
trying to install MegaPOV XRS.  I tried to install libiqxmlrpc-0.7.3a, but when
I ran ./config it gave me

configure: error: openssl library not found.

I then installed openssl-0.9.8k, and though the folder /usr/local/ssl exists,
when I try to install libiqxmlrpc-0.7.3a I still get the message

configure: error: openssl library not found.

Does anybody know what I've done wrong?

Thanks for any help!

what about installing the -dev part of ssl ?
(libssl-dev in synaptic)

openssl is only binary, no include provided.

Thanks for the response!  I'm not sure how to do that, however . . .

Hmm.  Yeah, I don't know what to do outside of the instructions in the openssl
install file -- I'm really quite new at this.  If it helps, here are the steps
it hung up on:

checking for OPENSSL_CFLAGS...
checking for OPENSSL_LIBS...
checking openssl/ssl.h usability... no
checking openssl/ssl.h presence... no
checking for openssl/ssl.h... no
configure: error: openssl library not found.

There _is_ a file named libssl.a in the folder /usr/local/ssl/lib/, if that's
the one you mean.  I don't know what to do with it, though.

Hello, please try to read fully any answer, especially when short. I have the feeling
to
speak to a deaf person and losing both our time.

*Read My Lips*

You must have /usr/include/openssl/ssl.h if you want to succeed.

/usr/include/openssl/ssl.h is *ONLY* available in libssl-dev package.

*YOU* *MUST* *INSTALL* *IT*.

         sudo apt-get install libssl-dev



libssl-dev is compatible with the binary availability of libssl.a, you can keep
openssl
package installed, no problem.



How do I know (for dummies):

 1. You reported

checking openssl/ssl.h usability... no
checking openssl/ssl.h presence... no
checking for openssl/ssl.h... no

 2. I asked my ubuntu: apt-file find openssl/ssl.h

libssl-dev: /usr/include/openssl/ssl.h

 3. Only one package. Easy to choose. Guess what ?

Thanks!

I was more dumb, than deaf, but I got it!

One final (I hope) error in the install.  I already installed
libiqxmlrpc-0.7.3a, but when I try to install the Megapov XRS itself, I get the
error:

No package libiqxmlrpc-server found

Is that actually a separate package?  I found the files libiqxmlrpc-server.pc
and libiqxmlrpc-server.pc.in, but I don't know what their extensions signify.
Any help?

(By the way, I'm trying to run this on one core i7 computer, so does that make
it both server and client?)
