Re: Blender 2.5 Alpha 0 released

Heh... instead of libtool we now have cmake vs. scons vs. gmake

I think Ton's still using OS X, but he's not responsible for the port

No need for libtool. Compiling with gcc should work using Makefiles, one just needs to set a variable ("IRIX_USE_GCC" IIRC) in user-def.mk to true.

Re: Blender 2.5 Alpha 0 released

The hard disk of my build machine has died. Because of limited time I didn't yet manage to find a replacement.

Most of the irix-specific stuff should be in svn, so it shouldn't be too hard to compile blender.

Re: Blender 2.49a

PS: Upcoming Blender 2.5 will be using Python 3.1 (and depend on it, unlike previous version). It would be nice if someone could create a nekoware package of python 3.1. I tried a quick attempt at a compile and it died with: c99 -c -OPT:Olimit=0 -DNDEBUG -O -I. -IInclude -I./Include -I/usr/nekoware...

Re: Blender 2.49a

It's been built with MipsPRO. However, gcc builds don't seem to be much slower.
I must admit that I don't quite get the point of the question.

Blender 2.49a

I've already mentioned this in another thread , but apparently nobody noticed. Blender 2.49a got released more than a month ago. It should work on multi-cpu systems, so please test & use it a lot to justify building blender on IRIX. You can get it from the usual place: http://www.blender.org/dow...

Re: nekosync-1.2

Blender is in nekoware?

Anyhow, it seems you're missing openexr. Either install it from nekoware, or get a recent version of blender from blender.org which has been statically linked against openexr.

Just wanted to say that blender 2.49a got released yesterday. It should work on multi-cpu systems, so please test & use it a lot to justify building blender on IRIX ;)

I use this car in summer (if it doesn't rain, that is): samba.jpg granted, it's not as prestigous or fast as most of the vehicles posted in this thread, but I love it (probably because it's even rarer than a Porsche in Austria). greetings, sgefant PS: I think passive rear steering was quite common w...

Re: blender 2.49rc1

Is it correct that all the systems where it doesn't run are multi-processor? If that's the case, I'll revive my origin and do some tests on it.

Re: blender 2.49rc1

@nekonoko: Unfortunately I couldn't get any useful info from the coredump. I'm a bit puzzled why it doesn't work on your systems. I've tested it on an R12k Octane2 and an R10k O2 (both running Irix 6.5.30) and it seems to run ok on both. Let's hope tbcpp can do a 2.49 build with MIPSpro and see if t...

Re: blender 2.49rc1

That's strange....

I forgot to mention that the built-in .B.blend was generated on an IRIX box, so it shouldn't crash when there's no ~/.B.blend

Out of couriosity, what's the output of "ldd blender"?

Running blender through gdb might also show something of interest.

blender 2.49rc1

Hi, blender 2.49 rc1 is available for download from http://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.49RC/RC1/blender-2.49-rc1-irix-6.5-mips4-py2.5.tar.bz2 because tbcpp was unable to build blender with mipspro in time, this build was compiled with gcc. I guess rc2 will be built with mipspro again. Know...
