SoftImage|3d install

I I think I'm going to take a break from porting and try my hand at 3D work. SoftImage is enticing because of how many movies its done, but I'm having a problem.

I have SoftImage and a license, but if I try to install the license server, it fails. I'm not sure why because IRIX already has FlexLm, but if I try to import the license, it doesn't see it.

How do I get SI to see the license I have?

iirc, the flexlm licence goes in a different place than normal. I will check for you.

[Edit]My licence is located at /usr/Softimage/Flexlm/licenses/softimage.lic

No need for a license server - just follow the instructions I posted in this thread:

Jeremy Birn has a bunch of beginner Soft|3D tutorials on his web site. So does Ed Harriss. Probably a good place to start. There's also a New Riders book called "Inside Softimage|3D" that is probably the best guide aside from the original user's manuals. It goes for about $5 on eBay.
