32bit Linux Version

Post#1 » Thu Oct 29, 2015 5:44 pm

Is there any opportunity to compile a 32bit version of the software for Linux? Linux runs so well on legacy hardware which is perfect for a shack and it would be nice to have the option. I understand that this could be more complex then simply compiling for the x86 target, so I thought I'd throw it out to the forum to find out. Thanks.

It is possible to create a 32 bit version. It's just that the audience is so small for such a version that it doesn't seem worth it. Even most legacy machines have 64 bit processors (they've been available for almost 10 years now). Most 32 bit machines with a Intel Core processor can be upgraded to a Core 2 processor (which is 64 bit capable) for around $10. You could also probably find lots of old but capable 64 bit capable systems for under $100.

Currently there are only about 10 people regularly using the NetLogger 64 bit version. I'd be surprised if there are more than 5 people who would want a 32 bit version of NetLogger for Linux.
