It looks like the same hardware as last years!
I can feel it, my mind is going ....
I'm having trouble getting on the internet with my P.I. running Irix 5.3.
I already have set the nameserver in the /etc/resolve.conf but to no effect.
When I run netscape to let's say http://www.sgi.com I get the "Server not found" error massage :?

I can see all the other SGI's on my network and visaversa, NIS also works on the P.I.

I just hope I don't have to install any patches they tend to mess up the System.
Specially on Irix 5.3.

Any Irix 5.3 specialists out there ?
I can feel it, my mind is going ....
I have tried both pointers to get my P.I. on the internet, but still no luck so far.
I've installed a complete new system some time ago and since then I had no luck getting it on the net.
I can see my network
What used to be a simple edit in the

Code: Select all

/etc/resolv.conf
doesn't work anymore.

Do I need to install some patches, I really don't want to cause when I installed the
P.I. Patchset last time, it messed up my motif colors when overlapping windows... :cry:
I've installed a clean Irix 5.3 with XFS.
I can feel it, my mind is going ....
O.K. Static route seems to work just fine.
During startup it say's that static route does see a gateway host.

Even Netscape thinks it can do business with the world wide web.
But after wanting to go to http://www.sgi.com it tries to connect
for about a minute and then an error massage pops up saying
"Invalid argument".

Does anyone know what is wrong here?

Its just a good working network with a router/switcher.
I have several other SGI's and an Apple G3 hooked up to the internet with no problems what

I must ad to this that the machine in question, my P.I, is the only one with Irix 5.3!
The rest of my SGI's are all running 6.5.

This could be an issue here....

CosmoWorlds used to be a free download from SGI, but it seems to have disappeared!

Does anyone have a tardist of the last version, 1.0.3?

Guess what Jan-Jaap, were the same age, 1969 is it not ?!!!
That was a good year if you ask me, those where the day's when NASA did stuff they are still wondering if they can do it again today :wink:
But I'm drifting here,

My name is Bob Soetekouw I live smack in the middle of Holland in a small town with my wife and two lovely daughters ( 1 and 3 ) .

I have worked with SGI's since 1992 when I started working as a video editor for a small dutch facilities company.
And I've been collecting them since I got ( after some nagging and making some comparison to a giant paperweight ) the first SGI our company bought,
namely a Personal Iris 4D35, for free. :lol:

After they replaced it with an Indigo2Extreme an Onyx_desksideRE, an O2 and a Octane in that order the P.I. was just collecting dust.
We where doing 3D animations on it with Softimage 3D and dumping it to tape frame by frame with the videoframer VME option.

Since then I believe that SGI's multiply when I'm not watching here's proof :

You can see my oldest daughter is watching finding Nemo on on of my Octane2's, mind you this starte out with just one P.I. ... :wink:

Hello Ben,

I don't know if your the first but your certainly not the last famous person here on the forum. :wink:

Are you still in the music business or into 3D graphics now?
I heard that you also have some Onyx1 towers standing around for rendering...

I had this problem before and now I have it again on a different machine:
Nekosync won't unpack the downloaded tardists into the inst directory :?
This being confirmed by the software manager when it finds an empty inst directory.

Any ideas what may cause this ?
I have all the prereqs Bash, Perl, GNU tar and wget.

Glad to be of assistance but I already have version 242a on my system.
I grabbed that one from the official blender download site.
Or is there something different with this version?

And thanks for keeping blender alive on Irix !!!!!
I can feel it, my mind is going ....
And here's another ( probably stupid and obvious ) question,
how do I compile the plugins that come with the blender download?

I've already tried :

Code: Select all

blender-2.42a-irix-6.5-mips/plugins %  ./bmake
./bmake[92]: test: argument expected
fgrep: can't open .c
fgrep: can't open .c
cc -KPIC -O2 -mips3 -c .c -Iinclude/
cc ERROR:  file does not exist:  .c
Compile error


I have no clue what it wants for an argument since there are no .c files in this directory.
There are .c files if I step into the include or sequence or texture directory's, but then why put
a bmake and a Makefile in the top directory????

I must be doing something wrong or skipping a few corners obviously, but then I just took a
stab at it since there's no readme or howto to be found anywhere ... :?
I can feel it, my mind is going ....

the Makefiles call bmake. Bmake looks for the system via uname and builds shared libraries (the plugins).


That worked allright :D

There is something different with this version. It has FFMPEG and OpenEXR
statically linked in. Also since it is using the latest version of FFMPEG, it is working
great!

I tested it on another computer of mine without the same environment and it
seems to be working fine, just wanted to be sure when I tell them it is ready.

Thanks for the help! I will let you know if/when the official site has this version!


O.K. I get it now !
I will give this version a try!
Thanks Charles!

When I go to save a file or open a file, it doesn't show fonts! I can't read filenames. Fonts everywhere else in the program work. This was true for the 2.43 prerelease and the current 2.43 release.

What might be the matter? Is anyone else seeing this problem?


Yes I'm getting the same problem, It seems that version 2.42 is the last fully functional version to run on an SGI......8(

Anyway a big thanks and applause to Charles for getting this version ported to SGI anyway,
we owe you past infinity... !)

But besides not being able to view any text in the file view it crashes after doing one frame of
Yafray rendering......
It seems that the development team is no longer taking SGI hardware into concideration, the fact
that this version compiles is a miracle I guess....

This is now officially the end of the last actively developed piece of software on SGI......... 8[
( please correct me if I'm wrong... )

I love it !!!!
Like the file browser and the standard scale option for 16:9 an 2.35 !!!

Just can't get the full framerate of 25 frames when trying to play a .tga sequence on my Octane2
R12k 400 MHz with V10.

Cheers and keep up the good work for the Unix community ( specially Irix )

Jimmer I love your Notes app !!!

What would be really nice is to have just a little more features added to it like different fonts and fontsize, Bold , Italic , underline.
And a way to resize the window.

But for a 0.9 version it's 'tha bomb' !)

_________________
I can feel it, my mind is going ....
It's faster then version 0.6.0 for sure.
I now get more then 32 frames when playing a standard tga sequence.
But it can only do 5 frames a second when I try the scale to 16x9 option on a 720x576 anamorph tga sequence.

Nice work !!!!
I hope the OpenGL will take advantage of the V10 Hardware cause that should be fast enough for sure !)

Yafray would need to be recompiled against the latest OpenEXR - you probably have the newer libIlmImf.so.5 libraries installed from neko_OpenEXR-1.4.0a.tardist.


I see ......

Anyone good with compiling yafray.. ....?
