Hi there,
I have an old laptop running Ubuntu and a raspberry pi running Jessie as well as a mac.  They all have the latest version of Mandelbulber  2.11-1.  I am trying to set up a net render and the 2 linux machines connect fine, however the osx machine displays the attached error when trying to connect...  I have tried searching for netrender or looking for any way to update the version on the osx machine without success...   Does anybody have any solutions to this problem or ideas as to how to fix it?   
thanks,
Will

Edit: Seems the version of netrender is the version of Mandelbulber * 1000 from the netrender.cpp ...   So my versions of mandelbulber mismatch.

Hi

Only solution is to use the same version on the program on all machines. On one you have 2.11-1 on second you have 2.12. Try to use older version 2.11-1 on all machines instead of 2.12 (on server machine).
Major revision have to be exactly the same. Otherwise rendered images would be inconsistent.

Okay i managed to compile with all machines running Mandelbulber2-2.11-1 and synching of renders works.  One of them was on Raspian Jessie on a Raspberry Pi.  In order to succeed in the compilation on Raspbian i edited the mandelbulber.pro file in the makefiles directory (sometimes in qmake) of the extracted mandelbulber2-2.11-1 folder as below.  Now all 3 machines sync great through netrender.  I've dug out an old screenless macbook pro as well to add to the farm and have it running off a benchtop power supply so all fun!
