Universal Scene Description (USD) is an efficient, scalable system for authoring, reading, and streaming time-sampled scene description for interchange between graphics applications. A preview build is available for early adopters, here.
There are two tarballs available for download, usd-20151216.tar.gz which includes the USD libraries, and deps-vfx2015.tar.gz which includes all the dependent libraries required by USD.
If you wanna get this up and running without taking the pain to read through the detailed setup instructions, you may download the following gist and run as root. Don’t forget to add the following line to your ~/.bashrc
As per the package README, the pre-built binaries expect to find library dependencies in /opt/pixar/usd-vfx2015. I went ahead with the recommended install location.

In this post, we will take a look at how to host your own private torrent tracker on Amazon Cloud. We will be using opentracker, an open and free tracker written by Dirk Engling. You can read more about opentracker here.
I am going forward with the assumption that you are new to AWS. In case you already have an EC2 instance up and running, you can skip to “Installing Opentracker” section.
Setup an EC2 Instance
Sign in to your AWS account. Its recommended to create an IAM(Identity and Access Management) User to setup an instance.
Log out of your current session, navigate to the url below replacing your_aws_account_id. Login using the credentials you created earlier.
# Create a new directory called opentracker
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs -z9 co libowfat
git clone git://erdgeist.org/opentracker
Opentracker lets you run your tracker in a closed mode using a whitelist of torrent hashes. To enable this, you need to edit the Makefile and enable the commented out line listed below.
Now run make to build Opentracker. By default there will be two binaries created, opentracker and opentracker.debug. You may use opentracker.debug to verify if the application launches without errors. If you have enabled the whitelist option, create a file named whitelist.list in the opentracker directory.
