In Need of Assistance!
So, over the last couple weeks or so, I have learned Perl and written the nightly build script, to the point that it will run on every platform currently supported by the SCP.  However, I don't have a dedicated box for each of these platforms that is a good candidate for being a provider of nightly builds, nor do I have a hosting solution that can handle the output of this script for much longer.  I need volunteers with a box that's up every night, as well as a more permanent solution for hosting these files.  I won't be running the script every night on every platform, just Windows for now.   This is partly due to most bugs being likely to be discovered by the Windows users, and the Mac and Linux builds are easily 2 to 3 times larger than the Windows builds, after compression.  Any help in the form of a build environment or a hosting solution would be greatly appreciated.

Chief

edit:  Apparently either the current hosting situation or warpcore can handle the hosting, no need for help there.  A box that can be dedicated to building would still be useful though.

Hosting is not what I need, so much as a computer/server with Perl and a compiling environment set up.

It could be useful.  I'm too busy with other things to think about it too much right now though.

I could provide you a Fedora machine that's up 24/7 (aside from the occasional power outage when out of town); provided you tell me what to do.  :p

Re: In Need of Assistance!
Swantz, shortly after you offered a friend of mine from college set me up a build box, so thanks anyway.  I'm still needing a Mac box, as I can't even run the compiler at all on mine since I upgraded to leopard.  One of the strangest bugs I've seen in a while, but that's beside the point.  Basically there won't likely be Mac nightlies for some time without someone taking over the build.  Until them I'm going to try to get a OS X virtual machine running, but that's not very easily done.

I think I fixed my Mac.  FS doesn't play nicely on a case-sensitive HFS+ install.  Seems to require case-folding, which is sad because that doesn't play nicely with CPAN, but at least there are published workarounds for it.  Either way, Mac nightly builds have shown up the last two days so I'm thinking I got it fixed up right this time (and now 10.5.6 came out, I hope it doesn't break anything).

10.5.6 says it has graphical improvments for games, so I assume it carries a driver update.

Everything is pretty much normal. Still no GLSL working. It really looks great these days with all the improvements - until I go look at how awesome it looks on a windows box. So depressing :(

I have a 24 / 7 computer with ubuntu. If you want I can install any packages. I can give you access to SSH.
If you have a ready script, then I'll just run it by cron.
The only drawback - my low speed internet. (Incoming 200Kb / s, outgoing - 100 Kb / s)
That's the way that I can not serve as a download-host.

Re: In Need of Assistance!
I have an Ubuntu 10.10 VM that I use for compiling my own builds from trunk. I don't run that 24/7, only as needed, but I can run it every night if required. I also have hosting available for the compiled bins.


 
Re: In Need of Assistance!
Not sure whether this is still relevant or needed, but I have an (i686)arch box that could serve as nightly-builder, together with quite some linux and general programming knowledge(no perl, I'm afraid, but python looks a lot like it, from what I've seen), so I would be able to fix any problems or apply any changes you send me).

It may not be, I have a friend with a VPS that might be serving this purpose soon, will let you know.

Re: In Need of Assistance!
Hey, Just looked through the nightly builds and there isn't many Linux builds. Do you still need a Linux box for the nightly builds? If so I have a spare 64-bit Debian box that might be of use, If not no worries.  :)
