Re: The Mediatic Guru!

Well, let's start with something different on this thread. I want to talk about the power of the marketing, and how you can make look better what in fact is the same, almost the same, or plainly worst. 1) When Apple uses Intel processors, we say "-wishes do come true!" 2) When Apple uses ...

nice that you guys got something to work already... I had always problems with true type fonts, even in official builds: they showed up, but beveling caused artifacts. This also on a sparc with a mesa-based and gcc build. I personally would prefer a generic 6.5.x build and mips3/mips4. I would hate ...

strange thread... I am working on FPGA from virtex for my thesis and I can tell you one thing: FPGA's are slow and have a bad perfomance/power ratio. Just a good asic goes many times faster. Virtex high-end fpga's integrate one or more power-pc to get speed! so why is FPGA interesting? because you c...

I have to jum in this discussion... blender on IRIX interests me quite a bit, because it is a nice piece of software, because it is small and light etc etc... (also essentially the only decent 3D package you get for irix, mac, linux and windows...) right now I am overly busy, but some months ago I t...

indeed, this is a lot of money. I too would have estimated the cost between 10K and 20K, a number that could have been put together.

70K could be reached only with sponsors: bugging some institution, compoany or SGI itself and make them interested in the effort.

Indeed, unfortunately, the isosurf crashes on irix. I tried here too. With Motif on Linux it works. I hope I can try it on netbsd soon. But penguin runs smooth and fine on my XZ :) the best place to ask is in the wxwidget channel on freenode... or in their mailing lists... Right recently there were ...

I found out OpenGL does work. It just isn't enabled by default. If you run configure with the flag --with-opengl, it will compile it. You can then run the samples cube and penguin. I didn't get isosurf to work. Bombs out with some error. I haven't looked closely yet at why. I tried on lnux and.. th...
