Nightly IRIX builds for blender now available on irixcentral

Unread postby skywriter » Tue Jan 06, 2004 7:34 pm

in response to some blender users desire to have latest blender builds, http://www.irixcentral.com will now carry nightly builds of blender (ok, when
the compile isn't broken :-) for IRIX. these are complete mips3 builds same
as the release version (only maybe a little buggy, or not depending on how
well we're doing :-) except you get the benefit of incremental feature adds
each day!

Enjoy, and thanks irixcentral!

I am one of many who have been longing for it!!!

As I have never been able to compile softwares on IRIX successfully, I almost gave up.

Thank you!

new software! 'yafray' the "yet another free raytracer" project has been compiled for irix!
the binary resides at http://www.irixcentral.com/blender .

Yafray is a raytracer developed by Jandro and friends at http://www.coala.uniovi.es/~jandro/noname/

Yafray enjoys close ties to blender. Hooks to export yafray rendering information is being
actively built into blender.

the only caveat seems to be you must have a recent version of IRIX to run. not quite sure how recent..... after .15 (which doesn't seem to work) and before .21 (which does work). might
be wrong though... i had dynamic linking problems on .15.... it's a work in progress, we just
got the whole sheebang running today (in between actually doing our jobs, heh).

Thanks Cosmo!

Thanks a lot for the yafray build and bringing it back to my mind... judging by the pictures in the gallery, it really seems some active development was done since I looked the last time :)

If it really works that good with blender, it's time to finally learn that strange GUI ;)
