Bittenbythedark is running it for us, and has signed the TPV Agreement, if that means anything to you.Questions:
1. Who is running this new nightly build site?
The site is building off of my repo's animesh branch which is available at Lirusaito/SingularityViewer2. Singularity Viewer is licensed under the GPLv2 except of some libraries which are stated in the FLOSS. The nightly build site is linking to the main tracker at Github: singularity-viewer/SingularityViewer, newest commit 18th of March, so it is clearly behind whichever development repository is being used for those binaries. The GPLv2 also ensures that the source out of which a binary is being compiled must be openly accessable. So, where is it?
Because the site is a work in progress.3. Why is the new source code repository being used to compile these builds not linked at the new nightly build site?
GPL only assures that you can request and obtain source, not that it be openly displayed. But ours is, so chill~Running binaries from a site where nobody has access to the source but the developers themselves essentially could mean in the worst case giving your login credentials away, because the peer review process cannot work like that.
SOLVED - Answering my own query to save anyone else the bother . . . I 'cleaned' the computer with C-Cleaner and then re-installed Singularity - looks like it's a newer build - and it no longer affects the desktop when closing. I still think it was caused by the Windows update.I use the Singularity viewer for logging in to our OpenSim standalone and also for the OS Grid. It has worked very well up until now and it still works. But a problem occurred first time I used it after a major Windows update a few days ago. When I close the viewer my desktop colours are messed up, like predominantly bright pink or orange or turquoise - different each time. I have to shut down the computer and switch it on again to correct the desktop. This is definitely viewer related as it happens even if I don't start up the standalone. It happens if I just open and close the viewer without trying to log in. I uninstalled the Singularity viewer and re-installed it and the same problem occurred. So I tried a different viewer - Alchemy - and the same thing happened with that.
By the way, For Second Life I use the LL viewer and that closes OK with no random bright colours. Any ideas why the third party viewers mess up the desktop screen when closing them?
