Re: Extension of systemVersion

LCMark- I get that chromebooks don't run linux. Just curious about what happens there. I've got (very) limited experience with chromebooks to date. I get "arm7l" as a result of running "uname -m" on a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3. I believe the original Pi was an arm6, but the OS determines its environment a...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Hmm... do you have to worry about whether the chromebook is an arm or intel cpu?

Re: Extension of systemVersion

That's why I was saying I was proposing it - so as not to change what the machine currently does.

Jacque- what do you get for 'the machine' on a chromebook?

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Probably depends on what you want to use the information for. I'd maybe propose that the 'detailed machine' would report the results of the commandline 'lscpu', but that's probably too much information. :roll: Possibly just the 'Mode name' entry from that list. Possibly part of the contents of /proc...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

OK - no worries then. You threw me off with the
'the machine' is defined to return then result of 'uname' on Linux
thing.

Re: Extension of systemVersion

The main question to ask here - why does it make sense for there to be engine syntax for it? Yeah, that's the point I was making^H^H^Htrying to make earlier. Well here is the point of contention - 'the machine' is defined to return then result of 'uname' on Linux - that is it. Just because it is ca...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

My point, though, was that returning the kernel version by itself doesn't really help with any of that.
Except possibly the data point of "the client hasn't updated the kernel".

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Possibly, but I'd be more concerned about the distro and desktop manager. Ubuntu? Debian? KDE? Gnome? Cinnamon? Mate? xfce?

Re: Extension of systemVersion

I see two things going on in this thread: 1. I need a way to determine which build to distribute to a given customer. 2. I want in-depth information about my client's machine for debugging, etc. #1 is pretty easy to do from a scripting level, so I don't see the need to bother the engine files with i...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Still not clear on this... I can see why you'd want a 32-bit demo version running on 64-bit Windows. But then "Dr Sanskrit" would select either the 32-bit or 64-bit version to order from you, no? Are you suggesting that the demo version tell the user which version to order? Or maybe the order form i...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Ah, Richmond... deploying to other processors/operating systems isn't a matter of checking a system property via script - the engine itself has to be compiled to run on the processor (Intel/ARM/etc) and hook into the operating system in various sneaky ways. That's why we don't currently have a Raspb...

Anyway, I think Chipp Walters had something similar back in prehistory, but I don't remember what it was called, so my answer is about as useful as Craig's.
