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

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

A while ago we decided to go into a journey of OpenSim. For those who are new to metaverse software; OpenSIM (Or OpenSimulator) is a program that emulates the back-end resources of a commercial metaverse known as “Second Life”. The client or front-end that connect to OpenSIM are third party clients such as firestorm and singularity. We liked working offline from SecondLife and keeping a backup of my stuff. What better way to do this then to keep it on something low-powered like a Raspberry Pi?

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.
