I tried to use 3.7 RC3. This was my first time with 3.7.
I got source, configured and compiled it and installed into Debian with checkinstall. And then I tried to use it. First run was with -benchmark (it took about 9 minutes, ok). Then I tried very simple scene:
rekcahx@oah:~/pov$ povray +Iaa.pov
I tried to debug with strace:
rekcahx@oah:~/pov$ strace -o debug.strace povray +Iaa.pov
