    I tried to run the 5.8.0-64 version on my

    openSUSE 42.3 (x86_64)
    4.4.120-45-default kernel

    and got an

    /usr/local/lib/qtVlm/qtVlm
    Segmentation fault (core dumped).

    5.7.4-64 runs without any problems.

    FYI: I got an Segmentation fault when I changed from 5.4.1 to 5.4.2 on my linux system.

    Deleting the .qtVlm directory in my homefolder solved the problem.

  • Re: Sailors with routers
    Board » General Discussion
    We need some more groups, not just routers and non routers ;) Whats about guys like me, who start a race without a router but bring in a router in the middle of the game and end the race without any router? Is it allowed to start in the nonrouter group if i run a router but ignore its output? Who will control that? I just wonder that most of the critics about routers came from folks that never used a router. Do you really think you can start an ocean race with your router, make your DC´s and thats it. After your 3 week vacation you will in the top ten? Thats a nice dream! Test the routers and you will change your mind that routers gives you an automatic top ranking. BTW, even in real sailing its a good idea to use uptodate tools.
  • Re: Performance loss
    Board » Technical Discussion
    "or should we spend some time on an intermediate performance system as "quick fix"?"

    If some time means some hours, we should do the "quick and dirty fix". As i said in my previous posting, let all the calculations as it is and set a hard limit for the max. performance drop. that would at least eliminate the worst impacts of our current perf system.

    Today i sailed 2 runs with a fast boat in the Atlantic Circle and tried to beat the performance drop system and it seems to work. A 3 step tacking, like from 45 twa to -5 twa, -20 twa and -45 twa may be faster then a normal tacking from 45 twa to -45 twa. The same with gybing. Gybe to the slowest possible speed to minimize the performance loss. Anything will be better than a 34kn speed to 34kn speed gybe with a 17% perf loss at 94% performance.

    A nice tactical aspect, but im sure this isnt what the developers had in mind when they wrote our current code.
