Running on Linux & keeping old version?

Hello, thanks for an amazing piece of work--turtleSpaces is a great language which I much look forward to using as a Linux local install.

I ran into some trouble on an oldish Linux--Debian Stretch--which I can't easily upgrade to something newer. The version I downloaded from turtlespaces.org prints out the following messages:

ALSA lib pcm_dsnoop.c(snd_pcm_dsnoop_open) unable to open slave
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
ALSA lib pcm.c(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.rear
ALSA lib pcm.c(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.center_lfe
ALSA lib pcm.c(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.side
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory
Cannot connect to server request channel
jack server is not running or cannot be started
JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for 4294967295, skipping unlock
JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for 4294967295, skipping unlock

before opening a window that downloads an update and exits, while clarifying that the previous version has been kept/archived. Then, when I execute the new version, it complains about glibc not being sufficiently recent and aborts.

The problems I'm trying to solve are the following:

  1. How can I execute turtlespaces in such a way that it won't auto-update? None of the command-line options listed by as a response to -help seems to be for this.
  2. How can I make the warnings/messages listed above go away? They seem to prevent the executable from doing anything, to the point that not even the -version flag works.
  3. Is there a repository of past versions of Linux turtlespaces, hosted somewhere I can access?

In summary, I need to keep executing the version currently hosted by the website, because my OS can't easily support the dependencies required by the most recent version. Thanks for any assistance

Hi! 

You could try the -no-update flag and see if that stops it from updating

You may need to install portaudio if you don't have it already

We're looking at compiling a static build which will include the libraries

Hope that helps!

Could you please try this version https://drive.google.com/file/d/13qwkJWtyfou3SjCXifYV1eOHM64OdQ2L/view?usp=sharing and see if it works okay with your system? Thanks!
