CentOS6.9 Help getting a newer release installed.

macdarren
I am wondering is their a distribution via yum or other method of running a
later version of Openscad on my CentOS6.9 machine?

I am by no means a Linux Guru, but I can work my way through basic command
line stuff.

I'd like some simple instructions to get a recent version running....I
followed some stuff I could online a while back but it was rather old.

I currently have a 2014 version or Openscad but would like to update so my
linux machine will be more compatible with the my much later Macintosh
systems using newer releases.

Thanks
Darren

A quick Google search for "openscad EL6" turns up this:
http://blog.chrysocome.net/2014/01/openscad-for-centos-6.html

However I would try run the latest nightly AppImage first:
http://www.openscad.org/downloads.html#snapshots

AppImage is just one file, you make it executable and run it.

That might work or it might not, EL6 may have a glibc which is too old
to use that AppImage. If you get some error in the terminal like
"GLIBC_2_XX" then you can't run that AppImage.

If your aim is to run recent desktop software, it's probably time you
got rid of old EL6 and used something more modern instead. EL7 can run
the OpenSCAD nightly AppImage, as can Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

grabbing it from github and running qmake / make isn't a terrible trial

there are some scripts to grab dependencies but they didn't work with
Void Linux, but you can always incrementally install missing stuff till
the qmake / make process works...

git clone https://github.com/openscad/openscad.git

https://github.com/openscad/openscad#compilation

obviously your mileage may vary but given a concrete issue with a github
build I'm sure if not me then others here can get you going...
