AVATeR System requirements

wold March 02, 2022 #AVATeR

Supported processors

Compiled versions are currently provided for:

ARM versions will be investigated.

Supported Operating Systems

Having currently few dependencies, AVATeR will generally run on compatible distributions.

Linux Debian (Ubuntu, Mint, etc)

Debian releases are tagged using the Debian release naming. Older releases used 'standard' and 'compatible' releases: these equate Bullseye and Buster respectively. Note newer distro releases may run applications from older distributions, the reverse is less likely, especially due to the Qt versions not being available.

Linux Red Hat (Fedora, OpenSUSE, etc)

Fedora releases follow the Fedora Workstation releases, and should be useable on newer or compatible systems with equal glibc and qt versions.


Windows and Linux differences

! Note: the device monitor has not yet been implemented for Linux.

The USB implementations differ, but this is mostly a technical aspect. The Linux version generally appears to run faster: Window's API function for device names can stall at times; Qt's row resizing was excruciatingly slow on Windows, but has been replaced by smart-row-resizing. That has it's own caveats: the intention is to allow either, at least in the Linux version.
