you mean Houdini Releae 6.5 for IRIX??... sidefx.com website still talks about Houdini 6.1 ... you have any other links about it?

and also.. voices told me that Sidefx will drop IRIX support since version 7.0 :( .. anyone can confirm that?



EDITED : Found it :) i'll try it later tonight on my octane.. now trying on XP... and found some bugs.. it must be a Gold release btw.. i guess.

It's not a gold release, it's still beta. SESI will release new builds weekly, until all major bugs are discovered and squashed. Then it will go Gold, it was the same with 6.1.

hello,

for 6.5 look at:
http://sidefx.vislab.usyd.edu.au/cd1_6.5.51

one person said the 'v7 last irix' stuff some time ago but nobody confirmed it.
well informed people also never heard of this. we'll see...

did you successfully installed it?.. its first time that i cant get it installed..
i downloaded the tar.gz file then i have a Tar file and two directories, where inside one directory ther's a 'houdini_install' script. If i run it it popups the usual winterm windows but instead of installing it it tells me that i must run the setup as root (while I am root when running the script).

maybe i really have to login as root instead of doing 'su", even if this sounds strange?

the windows version installed properly instead.. but some bugs makes it crash or close down very often here. :)

i never used the install script.
just extract the houdini.tar.gz from inside the extracted download file to a folder of your choice.

crappy!

6.5.51 crashes everytime i wanna use open or save dialogs.
6.5.53 even doesn't startup!

quick-checked the new features and if you're happy with 6.1 and don't miss something
special stay with it!

Are there any newer versions for IRIX past 6.5.51? I was planning on posting a note on the front page but version 6.5.83 appears to be Linux/Windows only ...

no, the 6.5.x version are just for testing so the supported versions will diff. sometimes.
try this: http://sidefx.vislab.usyd.edu.au/houdini-6.5.67/

worked fine for me.

I believe the Irix version was dropped some time ago. I remember checking into that a few years ago.

I have 6.5.51; the 6.5.67 I downloaded back then seems to be corrupt.
