OpenSIM + Raspberry Pi + Rasbian Hard-Float= WORKs!

OpenSim + Raspian hard-float = What was once broken now works!

A while ago I decided to go into a journey of OpenSim because I liked working offline from SecondLife and I like keeping a backup of my stuff. It’s good to have backups in the event Linden Labs completely fails you. Anyhow! In my past blog about the Raspberry Pi I talked about how I must have fried my Pi from running quake 3 on it overclocked like crazy, and it still maybe the case! but for now I’m not going to use my Pi for accessing it’s GLES capabilities but instead use it to act as a server for OpenSim. Because I do not know the learning curve of the average Pi or OpenSim User; I should note that this guide is going to a bit long and has bits from installing OpenSim as well as compiling all of the sources needed to get OpenSim functioning properly.

ODE Physics OpenSim Install

ubODE / ODE physics installation for OpenSim:

Update 11/25/2015: ODE / OpenDyanamics engine instructions have been updated to reflect the following changes to OpenSim 9.0 after the merging of code. If you are still looking for the original instructions feel free to click here. as of 11/26/2015 a massive update to the ODE physics called ubODE was introduced to many of the OpenSim environments. Making it run better then bullet on slower machines such as the Pi.

Dead angels speak to me sometimes. From Secondlife

Moments of clarity through bits of Secondlife

The vapor-lock of an empty club that you rez into can tell you megs upon megs of stories if you just sit quietly enough to look at the objects and the files within them. Who created them, and why. Most of it is a desperate cry for attention, or a document to say that you were simply here. Often times I am gleefully misdirected to a source of information I do not like. I shall share a fragment of the data-stream the goes across the screen.
