Not a problem at all. I'm working on trying to get a good tarball of 6.5.67 from foetz; might have something in a week or so.

Hi,
i just tested the 6.5.51 version
Just as someone said before, all you need to do is untar it to /opt and then get the sesi folder from old version 6.1 and get an apprentice license via
http://license.sidefx.com/get_nc_license.php
the license generated for 8.2 version work well for all 6 versions ...
I even made a good install script ... if someone else want it i can put it here ... if it doesn't disturb the rules ...
But, 6.5.51 version crashes on file open and save
the 6.1.208 and 6.1.303 versions work great
The 5.5.230 version too....
By the way, did someone notice any difference fron 5.5 to 6.1 ?
Seems to me the 5.5 version is very stable and fast compared to 6.1.
I have an O2 r12k 400Mhz, 256 ram, no AV i/o, 1280x1024x75, 6.5.30.
I also put some questions on sidefx forums where i'm registered from 2005 ... and here is the answer:

No, Side Effects hasn't developed for IRIX for some time now. I don't think anyone in this business does anymore.

Cheers,

Doing a text search on sidefx's website for "Irix", the most recent hit is from a press release dated 2002. Time to dust off my copy of "Blender for Dummies"... :mrgreen:

I get the following:

Code: Select all

:~/Desktop/houdini$ source houdini_setup_bash
The Houdini 6.5.67 environment has been initialized.
:~/Desktop/houdini$ houdini
ERROR: could not obtain GLX visual!
Most likely cause is a lack of 3D acceleration. Check your configuration.


Code: Select all

glxinfo | grep direct
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect


Will this not work through a forwarded X session maybe?

I try to install Houdini 6.5.67 on my sgi fuel but it fails because of a missing good install script.
Can somebody post a working install script to install Houdini 6.5.67?

just extract the houdini.tar.gz from inside the extracted download file to a folder of your choice.


a friendly warning tho, everything after 5.5 sucks big time on irix.

That's what I did and that's why it does not work.
I use bash as my shell on the fuel and get the following error messages:

Just one error as an example:
ERROR: Couldn't open "SI6.5.67/SI_AliasVar.ui" for reading: No such file or directory

This directory exists as "/opt/houdini6.5/houdini/config/Applications/SI6.5.67"
with the following content:
SI_AliasVar.ui SI_ColorEditor.ui SI_NewDirectory.ui SI_SymbolDialog.ui
SI_AppChooserDialog.ui SI_ExprDialog.ui SI_Playback2.ui SI_Textport.ui
SI_BundleChooser.ui SI_Folders.ui SI_PlaybackMPlay.ui


The file "SI_AliasVar.ui" is there, too.

Any hints how to fix this?

I'll bet you need to set environment variables so it knows where it's installed. That's usually the case.

In particular you need to set HOUDINI_PATH, their environment variable page no longer lists anything IRIX specific but the Linux ones should get you pretty close:

iirc there either is a start script or some file with env vars you have to source. in case of irix this usually is csh so trash your bash :P

Thank's vishnu. That helped. Houdini is installed and starts without problem.

Here is how to install Houdini 6.5.67 if you use bash or ksh as your shell:

1. Extract the tar-gz-file in your home directory as normal user.
2. Get root and move it to /opt. Rename the lengthy directory name to something
shorter if you like. For example to /opt/houdini6.5
3. Add the following commands to your /etc/profile:

HOUDINI_MAJOR_RELEASE=6
HOUDINI_MINOR_RELEASE=5
HOUDINI_BUILD_VERSION=67
HOUDINI_VERSION=${HOUDINI_MAJOR_RELEASE}.${HOUDINI_MINOR_RELEASE}.${HOUDINI_BUILD_VERSION}
export HOUDINI_VERSION
HFS=/opt/houdini6.5
HOUDINI_PATH="$HFS/bin:$HFS/houdini"
PATH="$HFS/bin:/usr/nekoware/bin:$PATH"
export PATH HFS HOUDINI_PATH

HDSO="$HFS/dsolib"
LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$HDSO:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

4. Save your /etc/profile and reboot your sgi workstation.
5. Use the instructions in this thread to get a Houdini license and enjoy Houdini.
