Re: Compiling ESDL and Wings 3D on IRIX

I confirm functional Wings3D on IRIX!
I followed the guide provided by dsolaz with version 0.98.36 and it works.
More: I prepared a self-contained package (no deps, 8MB tgz) and tested it on Tezro/dualR16k800/V12/6.5.29m, Fuel/R16k700/V10/6.5.29m and Octane/R12k300/ESI/6.5.26m

I've tested one more configuration (Octane/R12k/300/V6) and found one bug: It works only for the user root. I'm not sure why.
If you want and can test it yourself, download it from here:

(If you guess, that I created that webpage in 2 minutes, you're right :-) )

Is there some error message or something? Maybe "failed to create thread: operation not permitted"?
The system-scope POSIX thread issue is a problem only if you are not root.

It's some other problem, it looks like LD_LIBRARY_PATH is ignored for non-root, or more probably changed by erlang on startup.
See yourself, if you can.

This is the error message:
Driver Failed {error,{open_error,"93719:/home/tekavi/wings3d-0.98.36/bin/beam: rld: Fatal Error: Cannot Successfully map soname 'libgcc_s.so.1' under any of the filenames /usr/vtech/sdl/lib/libgcc_s.so.1:/usr/lib32/libgcc_s.so.1:/usr/lib32/internal/libgcc_s.so.1:/lib32/libgcc_s.so.1:/opt/lib32/libgcc_s.so.1: "}}

libgcc_s.so.1 is in lib/esdl-0.96.0626/priv together with SDL and sdl_driver and LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set accordingly

IIRC, LD_LIBRARY_PATH is for o32 binaries. Try LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH, that might be it.

It didn't help. LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH is used before LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but none should be ignored.
If I test it using ldd, LD_LIBRARY_PATH works, but then it's silently ignored by erl

Performance

Unread postby jdboyd » Thu Jan 18, 2007 1:34 pm

It would be cool if people would test it on older machines, like R4.4k Solid Impacts and lower.

Wings runs acceptably on a P166 with 3D accelerator (I know I tried a Voodoo3, and a Riva TNT), so it would be really cool if it could also perform on older SGIs like Indys and/or Crimsons.

tested it briefly on my octane2 D600V12 - only problems i encountered during that session were that you could close it instantly by hitting the window border's close button once. no "want to save question", nada.
also when i maximized the window, it became huuuuge, several times screen size (mine's 1600x1200) and windows opened up outside the visible screen area and were not resizeable any more. had to hand edit the prefs to get it to look how i wanted it.

but now after a system restart it refuses to run anymore, what gives? user root, 6.5.27, chcap set and all and suddenly it cannot find libgcc_s.so.1 anymore.

just wanted to bump this. ;) anyone still working on it? for me, it sometimes works, sometimes it simply refuses to start.

just checking in...
I take it there are still serious bugs trying to run on a octane2 6.5.30?
I'd love to use Wings on my SGI, it's a great program

I might look at this again soon. I just got a new machine and right now I'm patching the Erlang emulator so it correctly detects the number of available CPU's. I'm still using 6.5.26, however.
If I get this working again, this time I'd like to make tardists, but I will need assistance from someone who is familiar with that package builder thing.

It downloaded and installed without a hitch, I am using a octane 2 single processor 400 Mhz V10, 2 Gigs, works great! no crashes yet. Only problem is the wavefront .obj files don't convert into .IV files. VRML file worked great! cool features , neat autorotation. User interface seems easy to use. I also confirm that it opens in a window area larger than the monitor screen. Resized to the monitor size and saved. when reopened it remembered the correct screen size. Cool! Need a program like this for animation = easy to use.
