A "Wacatac" alert was seen for Basilisk in the past too, I guess we'll see it again in the future..

I plan to build next Linux release with -march=x86_64-v3 instead of just -mavx2, as latter implies less settings.
So here is question: how should i approach AVX build?

I think for avx you should use -march=x86-64-v2 -mavx -- at least until the time we move to avx for mainline (probably somewhere in summer, rough ballpark)
Also, note the dash, not underscore, in the command-line parameter.

33.0.2 builds are up, no changes in linux build due to old gcc not supporting that march setting.

Any chance for a macOS build? Perhaps you could work with dbsoft on it?

I haven't any interactions with apple products whatsoever, so not from me. Idk how i can help, as from previous statement i'm not familiar with compiler options as well.

Where can I find your source code and build instructions? Perhaps I can give it a try.

Ask dbsoft, not me...
Again, i have zero relation to apple stuff and different compiler is used there, so compiler settings i use won't help. Source is not modified.

I've mentioned a few crashes using the first available builds, in the recent AVX thread. Didn't have the time to report back then.

After using the current, 33.0.2 AVX2 version on the same laptop for a couple of weeks, there have been no crashes. It feels a bit snappier too - no placebo.

Just ship a flatpak.
I agree with Nuck, flatpak isn't great.


Although, I hear less crap about flatpak then snap packages. So... yeah.
