Golden Cheetah – Development Builds

Remember, these are "release" builds of the current development code.

Category: Linux (32bit)

Hi,

With some assistance from Jacob Yundt, I have some setup a test repository for Fedora 18/19 users of GoldenCheetah.

This is running the release_3.0.0 branch of the code with a custom patch to allow Twitter to work on it again. It does not have VLC support, KML export for Google maps or D2XX support for file downloads.

It does have srmio for SRM download via serial only but untested by me at this time.

Feedback greatly appreciated.

* Install repository for Fedora 18
prompt> su -c yum-config-manager --add-repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/garethcoco:/GoldenCheetah/Fedora_18/home:garethcoco:GoldenCheetah.repo

* Install repository for Fedora 19
prompt> su -c yum-config-manager --add-repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/garethcoco:/GoldenCheetah/Fedora_19/home:garethcoco:GoldenCheetah.repo

* Then install GoldenCheetah
prompt> su -c yum install GoldenCheetah

* Start GoldenCheetah
prompt> GoldenCheetah

The SRM download back end for Linux and Mac was changed. We have rebuilt GC to use the newer version. Windows is the same as the last build as it does not have SRM download capabilites.

If there any issues please log a bug report or flag it in the Users group. See the links to the right.

Download the Version 2.1 Release Candidate 4 build based on commit: d6ba7b0cb3

See http://github.com/srhea/GoldenCheetah/commits/ for the full commit history.

Over a year in the making we bring to you Version 2.1 Release Candidate 1. This will most likely be a very short release candidate as most of the features are well bedded in all current bugs that we know of in the release have been closed.

Download the Version 2.1 Release Candidate 1 build based on commit: a78bd5d919

Here are the latest development builds for versions 2.1 and 3.0.

These install into different locations and the data files are in separate directories so that they don’t conflict. You need to copy/paste from your version 2 to your version 3 if you want to use your old files.

Version 2.1

Version 3.0

Download the development build based on commit: 71f68d823d

At this time I am unable to generate static Linux builds. The recent Strava patch introduced the need for the QtScript library. The problem is that when you have Qt built statically (which I have done) you cannot use this library and the QtWebKit library at the same time.
I have been building Qt and GoldenCheetah statically so as to allow the same executable to be used over may different Linux platforms. This is now no longer possible. I am going to attempt to learn how to use some different tools out there that may allow me to build GoldenCheetah in a dynamic way and allow for easy distribution to multiple platforms.
Until then, please use the information in INSTALL_LINUX file to build your own dynamic builds.

Here are the latest development builds of version 3.0.

For Windows and Mac, version 3.0 installs into different location and the data files are in separate directories compared to version 2.x so that they don’t conflict. You need to copy/paste from your version 2 to your version 3 if you want to use your old files.

For Linux builds, data will use your existing version 2.x directory. You will need to install VLC Media Player. Follow the instructions on the website on how to do this.

Here are the latest development builds of version 3.0.

For Linux builds, data will use your existing version 2.x directory. You will need to install VLC Media Player. Follow the instructions on the website on how to do this.

For Windows users, please do an uninstall before installing this version. It is built using a different build system and Qt is statically built in and so all the old DLL’s are no longer required. This version also has grown to approximately 30MB as I have bundled in all the dll’s needed from the VLC Media Player that handles all the video.

For all existing users of the Train tab, please make sure that you reset the layout before using this mode. This is done from the View menu, Reset Layout link.The Realtime Control chart has been removed and replaced with buttons at the top of the Window. A new Workout Library heading has been added where you select the Device to use and the Workout/Video (optional) that you wish to use. You must set a Workout Library in the Tools menu, Options link under the Settings tab. Any videos/workouts you put in there will appear in the Workout Library tab.

Here is the latest development build for version 2.1.

This will most likely be the last 2.1 development build.

We will be looking to update the translations and deploy a release candidate build very soon.

Once 2.1 is released, I do not plan to do any more builds as I will be focusing on the version 3 developments.

Version 2.1

Hi. Here is my first go at a Linux build. It should have everything except video in it.

It uses the same configuration directory as version 2.x.
