apgluxe for non-x86 pcs

Postby googleplex » August 25th, 2018, 10:16 am

I'm trying to run apgluxe on my Raspberry pi, but it doesn't work because it's not x86. what should I do?
Look at me! I make patterns in golly and go on the forums! I wanna be Famous!

Use the Golly Python version instead. Lifelib (upon which apgluxe is based) derives its speed from being able to write its own assembly code. (The fastest linear algebra packages, ATLAS and OpenBLAS, are similar in this respect.) Unfortunately, that means it only works with the instruction sets that it directly supports, which in the case of lifelib are all x86_64-based.
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!
