sounds like you'll have to upgrade your Irix.

maybe, but it isn't worth it for just having a look. will get windows binary instead.

well, i would disagree mostly because there is a lot of recent software 6.5.12 will have issues with..

but to each...

well, all the software i acquired the machine for runs without flaws. in my experience a lot of freeware causes troubles though. that's why i try to stay away from that as much as i can.

As Diego mentioned above, the new version requires IRIX 6.5.17+

That missing symbol problem was a result of the move to Python 2.3.
The configure script in Python 2.3 looks for that symbol in libc, which
it finds in Irix >= 6.5.20, and the dependency gets compiled in.

I've built a version of python that doesn't depend on that symbol
and compiled recent cvs with it. You might want to test if it
works on your system (also try out some of the latest features
-- new unwrapper, creased subsurfs, etc -- to ensure they run on Irix):

http://bebop.cns.ualberta.ca/~cwant/ble ... ips.tar.gz

You may wish to report any problems you find to the blender
bug tracker (be sure to specify that the problem is with recent cvs,
and include as much information about your system as possible):

http://projects.blender.org/tracker/?at ... unc=browse

Regards,
Chris

Fantastic, I'll give the CVS version a try this weekend!

this is good. it even runs on 6.5.15. are the lib/iris-6.5.mips files fixed then?
it would be nice to know how the new features worked without having to dredge through the blender.org forum drek. any new feature documentation available?

Not yet ... I had hoped to get some feedback about whether the binary
was usable first before committing the modified python libs. Will commit soon.

Unfortunately we've hit another snag: The current CVS compiles the
solid/qhull collision detection libs, which seems to only want to
compile with MipsPro 7.4 (unless somebody knows how to process
lines like "#include <cmath>" wth MipsPro 7.3.1.3m?).

Here is a cvs compile from today that was compiled with the 7.4 compiler
if anybody would like to test it:

http://bebop.cns.ualberta.ca/~cwant/ble ... ips.tar.gz

(MipsPro 7.4 will probably be the compiler used to produce the 2.34 binary that
is expected out in a couple of weeks.)

BTW: how does our old friend 'sequence.blend' fare with that binary?

There are some preliminary docs about the latest changes/features here:

I doubt it's a problem anymore. I'm pretty certain the problem stemmed from a mismatch between 7.3.1.3m development components, and 6.5.21's partial upgrade of those systems, and the state of the precompiled blender libs. I never had time to sort it out (or do anything else for that matter). I've upped to 6.5.23 (the EOL for indy/indigo2) and will be sorting out my 7.4 compile platform. all takes time.

the unfortunate side effect of having more than one machine is you have to maintain them all as well.

This has been covered in an old thread about Octave builds on IRIX:
viewtopic.php?t=710

The trick is to get separate CC-isoheaders to augment your MIPSPro 7.3.1.3m. There are also patches from SGI about this, but are behind support contracts. :( Unfortunately the tarball mentioned in the above thread is gone, but, i found an Octave reference:
http://wiki.octave.org/wiki.pl?PaulKienzleIrixConf

And here is the CC-isoheaders link:
http://octave.sourceforge.net/MIPS73-isoheaders.tar.gz

Thanks for the great tip!

Ideally I'd like to find a source level solution that
could be sent upstream to the solid library author,
i.e., some thing like

#ifdef GOT_ISOHEADERS
#include <cmath>
#else
/* do something else here */
#endif

Unfortunately my C++ knowledge is novice at best,
but my guess is that the source is probably too
dependent on the new-fangled C++ stuff for such a
solution to exist.

There is one last workaround that would allow 7.3.1.3m
compatibility: blender has a cvs module of pre-compiled
libs, so the solid stuff could be compiled with 7.4
and committed to that module, with the build system
altered to use that lib under irix rather than trying to compile
the library itself (this was the behavior of the build system
up until about a week ago, but the gameengine
maintainer wants to move away from this practice).
