Frontpanel on linux wxwidgets2.5.4 hard dependency?


#1

Is there any way that the frontpanel application could be distributed such that it does not depend exclusively on wxwidgets 2.5.4? if this is not possible, can you provide a link to where that exact version is being mirrored? Current release is 2.5.5 and despite my best efforts with symbolic links, frontpanel really will not run without exactly 2.5.4.


#2

Yes – we will probably statically link the Linux version in the future.

Great, thanks. I actually ended up finding a link to the right version and things seem to work ok, except for the fact that configuring the FPGA seems to only work once every 10 tries or so, I have a similar problem in windows. Most of the time when I click configure FPGA and load a bitstream, I get back a “failed” message. Have you seen this problem before?

Hello-

Yes, we have recently witnessed (and fixed) this issue. It appears to happen only on very fast machines. A new release of FrontPanel and the API to address this issue is forthcoming.

oh, good, thought I was just unlucky. Host machine is 3.6Ghz 2Gb RAM- so seems to fit profile for problems.
