So, since my laptop sounds like it’s about to lift off with the fan running when I run interface, I installed interface on another machine tonight when I got home from work. I was surprised when it told me that the server version was incompatible with my client at login. I assumed that was a good explanation for all my entities missing too. One thing I hadn’t considered was that I would be wearing the default, robot avatar again…I assumed that was saved on the server and not in Interface. Wrong assumption?
Anyway, I found that interface was 13 versions behind on my laptop (2948) while the latest I installed on the other machine is 2961. I’ve determined that 2953 is the last version that works with my current server stack. I didn’t see an announcement about needing to update the Stack Manager, nor could I find the version number in the source code (I’m running ubuntu) to know if I really needed to update to the version currently at github. So, figuring I had nothing to lose, I cloned the repository (using git clone https://github.com/highfidelity/hifi.git), remade everything and relaunched the server. I’m still getting the message that interface is incompatible with the server unless I fall back to 2948. Did I miss an announcement and how do I determine which version of the stack manager and servers I’m running? …and is it updated as frequently as interface is?
