Hi,

blender 2.49 rc1 is available for download from http://download.blender.org/release/Ble ... .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.

Known bugs and limitations:
* no ffmpeg
* crashes when loading files saved on 64bit platform (like linux on amd64)

To be able to use python scripts one needs to install python 2.5.x from nekoware and set the PYTHONHOME environment variable to /usr/nekoware (this is optional).

greetings,
sgefant

(edit: updated link)

EDIT: 2.49a is available, go get it here: http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/

Just downed it and unzipped, started instantly on the ol' Fool. . I don't know how to run Blender but made a couple of cubes and cones and such without problem.

The interface is weird but it does look really nice. How about a spaceball-enabled version ?

6.5.30 here. No problems with Blender 2.48 and a proper .B.blend file, but Blender 2.49 just cores with a bus error.

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.

greetings,
sgefant

I don't have gdb installed as I use MIPSpro/dbx, but I've attached the core file if that helps any.

Gave it try on my Onyx2 this morning - crashes there as well (also IRIX 6.5.30).

Code:
ALERT: Process [blender] 2701 generated trap, but has signal 10 held or ignored
        epc 0x10ed3544 ra 0xace6974 badvaddr 0xfffffffffffffffd
        process has been terminated to prevent infinite loop

@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 that one works.

greetings,
sgefant

Me, too. Usually if there's any crashing to be done, my computers are right there in the thick of it.

This one ran fine for me tho (Fuel, 6.5.30). Weird.

Well it doesn't appear to be working for fzalfa either. Unfortunately, nobody else is chiming in, so the sample size is pretty darn small.

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.
