  1. Bonifacio Second Life Server 2019-09-06T22:03:53.530715 Carla avatar loaded from Library, There's a sign of spurious system pants, defective alpha mapping, and mis-shaped foot, none of which appears on the main grid. On the main grid the feet fit in the shoe, and no gap between ankle and pants.
  2. This has been pretty fast work by the Firestorm team, faster than I expected, though I am not sure that Bakes-on-Mesh does anything worthwhile for me. I suppose we shall have to wait for creators now.
  3. Is this bug likely to be on the Beta Grid? I saw some weird things affecting the feet and ankles of the Carla Avatar, not present on the Main Grid with the same viewer. Boot base & alpha maps apparently failing.
  4. Since I upgraded my connection, a few months ago, I've had about 6 times the internet bandwidth, and it makes a big difference to viewer performance. But the viewer feels greedy: it is frequently using all the available bandwidth. Some high-bandwidth apps have options to set a limit, so I can download things like video files in the background, without affecting routine uses such as web browsing. Second Life isn't a background app, but it routinely uses a lot of resources, such as virtual memory, as well as the internet bandwidth. I know that some of the huge numbers come from multiple poi
  5. When this started, back in July, I switched to https://eregion.kicks-ass.net/munin/servers/akari.eregion.home/SL_Online_Now.html which is working as I write.
  6. Early in July, the ancient use of the UDP protocol for asset fetching was turned off. Actively supported viewers should be OK, but some still used viewers did stop working. The Lumiya viewer for Android is one example, though you can still use it for text-only access. But, I'll be honest, the silence on which viewers would continue working was disappointing. Linden Lab was making two rather old viewers available, one for obsolescent versions of Windows, one for Linux. Nothing was said. Over the weekend, I chanced on some specific info on version numbers, nothing really new but since nobod
  7. A particular merchant group operates it's own region, and has a very popular main store. Good look to them. It's very crowded, though I have some reason to doubt that there are that many avatars coming and going. The last time I was there, the median complexity looked pretty high, and they were not obviously display models (that could eventually be replaced by animesh). Fortunately, they have a secondary store, in a sky-box, presented as the low-lag, please don't hang around, store. Both are in the same region. OK, not much texture loading, but still the same horrible script-load and
  8. Small kernel upgrade, 0-45 to 0-46, and that fix stops working. There's the Firestorm debug option that uses Wine to run a Windows version of SLVoice. Are people assuming you can do a Wine install of the SL Viewer? I have reached the point of thinking that if the answer is SLVoice, somebody has asked a bloody stupid question.
  9. I caught the tail-end of the v1 era. Several things from that era, including a choice of colour themes, vanished from the v2 viewer, never to return. The SL Viewer has a poor choice of colours, but it seems you have to use it if you are reporting any problem to Linden Lab. I know I am not colour blind, but the choices make it difficult for me. v2 was outsourced, and at a time when multiple cores were becoming common enough to need thinking out. But one doing the OS work, one doing the work for the program, and a third for things such as SLVoice, was the low-hanging fruit. I know I ca
  10. Thanks, this fix worked for me. I've seen others which don't install the same set of items, and a couple which installed other items and still didn't work. Still doesn't change the poor quality of the info from the SL15B organisers. The timetable pages are lists of names, and if you don't recognise the same you have to hope the SL-name is recorded by Google somewhere, with some info on what they do. And all the things I went to today were media streams. I could figure out somebody was a piano player when I finally reached the stage and saw them. It sounded like House of the Rising Sun. I
  11. While it's not on the official TPV list, if you have low-end hardware, Cool VL Viewer is worth a try, but it's a version of the old v1 UI, and I am not sure it would run on graphics hardware that old. Any viewer, the sticking point is the OpenGL drivers. Also, the current downloads are 64-bit only, though you can build a 32-bit version from the sources.
  12. I now have the current SL Windows Viewer running under Linux using the Wine sub-system with nVidia hardware on the v384.90 Linux driver. Note that Linux version numbers for nVidia drivers may be marked as a Beta for Windows. It is a different operating system Linux Version in use: Linux Mint 18.2 "Sonya" with xfce desktop, running in 8GB RAM with nVidia GTX650 hardware. This might work in 4GB without starting to swap to virtual memory. Wine Version 2.10 set up with Play On Linux as a 32-bit virtual disk. SL Viewer Version: Second Life 5.0.7.328060 This setup appears
  13. A small update (since nobody seems to know anything). I have been able to get an ancient Windows Viewer working using the PlayOnLinux interface for Wine. I was using 64-bit Linux and set up a 32-bit virtual drive through PlayOnLinux, using v1.6.1 of Wine. So getting a 32-bit Windows Viewer running can be done. This isn't all that useful, since the viewer I found is pretty old, and has erratic mesh support. But I now seem to know more about this than all the big-name experts (and if that doesn't frighten you, it should). There's no real point in using it, except it let me get a Window
  14. I know, it makes web searches a bit tricky too, but that's what the program is called. There are days when I would choose something stronger.
  15. There are viewers which work with current Linux versions, I have no problems with Firestorm, and a strange Linux release from Linden Lab which seems totally unsupported, and won't work with any Linux version I have tried. Wine is a Linux tool which allows you to run Windows programs on a Linux machine. I have the Kindle Reader program for Windows and an app called Scrivener set up this way and they work fine. The Kindle Reader is a bit picky about which Wine version it works with. I have not been able to get any version of the Windows viewer, Linden Lab or Firestorm to work with Wine
