linux cmake builds slower than scons

I would like to be able to build optimized blender with cmake but find that it is up to 6 times slower at rendering than my scons builds. I have an Amd athlon64 (san diego) chip running linux slackware 64bit. Cmake detects "sse2" ok and builds correctly but renders very slowly. The scon flags I use ...

Ok, I sorted it.
Download zlib 1.2.5 http://www.zlib.net/.
Make a static version

Code: Select all

./configure --static
then

Code: Select all

make
and put the libz.a & libz.so.1.2.5 file in your blender and lib folder
I tried a full install but it screwed up midori and firefox, had to reinstall zlib 1.2.3.

Yes me too. I have the 32 bit (blender-2.53-beta-linux-glibc27-i686) version running on slackware 13.1. If I change the "user preferences" then save as "default". I get the following error:- ./blender: symbol lookup error: ./blender: undefined symbol: gzopen64 gzopen64 - Is this part of a 64bit zlib...

Thx jms,
I put a new kde4.4 o/s on my box and the new build went fine without that pesky browser opening.
I had "scons clean" before. Must have been a glitch.

Web browser opens at start svn build 26518

Hi,
Is a web browser meant to open at starting blender.
The last few builds (latest svn build 26518) I have made seem to.
Do I need to edit preferences to get rid of it?
Ty.

Hi,

The work around I use for baking specular(open gl live view) is,

Vcol paint enabled in materials, then in vertexpaint window > Paint > set shaded vertex colours. Bake that as a texture and composite over a full render bake or other texture layer.

I still am unable to ming/scons build blender with openexr, and would really like to.
All the above errors still applicable.

Presumably the libraries that come with the source are ok for building, I did also try the libs found at geneome site.
Do i need to have openexr installed?

Any help please.

Texture image file preview lost in cvs

Using "ctrl + select" for texture image files used to enable one to preview image thumbnail files (which was very useful).
It doesn't work in the current cvs builds.
I hope its planned to be included in the final release.

shaded view screwed since 2.41

The shaded view, since 2.41, only displays varied and multicoloured with no bearing on materials.
I run win xp pro with nvidia geforce 5200 card.
Is it my card or the same for everyone?
