#7452 closed feature request (outdated)

Make Altivec code working on non-OSX systems

Reported by: SF/capehill Owned by: fingolfin

I tried to compile Altivec code in common/scaler/hq3x.h on GCC 3.4.3 (Cygwin, host=ppc-amigaos) but it gives me errors.

For example, this:

#ifdef USE_ALTIVEC // The YUV threshold. static const vector unsigned char vThreshold = (vector unsigned char)((vector unsigned int)0x00300706);

Gives an error of "different sized vectors" or something similar.

Does this code compile for MacOS?

Yes, it works perfectly fine under Mac OS X. I don't think that that GCC 3.x on non-apple systems has a fully compatible Altivec extension syntax. You may have somewhat more luck using GCC 4.x

Moving this to Feature Request tracker.

The altivec code has been removed, so this item is now kind obsolete ;-).
