Google Gears 0.5.7.0 a 64 bit( english version)

Dato che Google non rilascia la versione a 64 bit di questa utile estensione di Firefox (utilizzata da WordPress, ad esempio, per velocizzare la sezione di amministrazione), ho provveduto a scaricare dal repository subversion il sorgente e modificare le parti necessarie a compilarla a 64 bit con GCC 4.3.

Detto questo, ecco il link alla versione binaria di Google Gears 0.5.7.0 per x86_64:

http://files.freelosofia.org/gears-x86_64/gears-linux-opt-0.5.7.0.xpi

Appena avrò il tempo, probabilmente non per questa ma per la prossima release, piuttosto che mettere a disposizione la sola versione binaria metterò online anche la patch da applicare ai sorgenti.

Consideratela la mia strenna natalizia per voi e… buon download. :-)

  3. ivanhoe scrive:

    Maybe your problems with the 0.5.7.0 binary I uploaded depend on which libraries are installed on your system. I am a gentooist, my laptop is running on ~arch so anything is pretty up to date and it could be compared with a debian testing/experimental.
    That’s why in the future I will release also the patch to the code and detailed instructions on how to build and pack it.

    Installed but don’t work on Ubuntu 64.((

  5. ivanhoe scrive:

    Yes, as I wrote in response to another blog, it almost certainly depends on which libs are installed on your system.
    I have an ~amd64 gentoo on my notebook, so *every* library was nearly bleeding edge at the time I compiled google gears (after all, I did it for me and only at a second time I thought it could be of some use to other people).
    As soon as a new version will be released by google I’ll also publish the patch and detailed instructions on how to build google gears on a 64 bit environment, so anyone could have its own 64bit google gears even if my binary release would not work for work for anyone else but me. :)

    tried to install it on Debian sid but it did not seam to work :-(

  7. ivanhoe scrive:

    Read my answer to the previous comment and wait for the patch. Sorry! :(
    (Or, much better, since literally *hundreds* of people have downloaded my build of Google Gears even if this is a minor blog in a peripheral area of the internet, let’s ask Google to release an official 64 bit version of it)

  8. Damien scrive:

    Thanks ivanhoe, the patch and instructions would be great, because it seems that Debian unstable is also not bleeding edge enough (if it is due to older libs).

  9. James Snyder scrive:

    Google have said, at least in the past, that they aren’t interested in doing a 64-bit release because of the added testing and whatnot. I look forward to seeing your patch when released so that I can do a build.

    Best.

  10. Ivan scrive:

    Please, release the patch! Would like to build myself, because binary does not work on opensuse.

  11. jaduncan scrive:

    “Google Gears doesn’t work with 64bit OS’s, so that would exclude over 10% of ubuntu users”

    I have put up the 64 bit binaries at http://www.jaduncan.com/2009/02/gears-on-64-bit-gnulinux.html

  12. ivanhoe scrive:

    Nice work! Thanks. :-)
