IRIX

Postby JWalton » Sun Oct 13, 2002 7:43 pm

I guess we'll have to consider IRIX a port now. The Makefiles don't seem to make sense out of modern IRIX installation.
Anybody have a clue how to fix this?

Any progress sofar on IRIX port?
Sofar I got no were. Funky I got further on a Sun Box. I guess Sun is going more GNU friendly.
Even though I lack the skills keep me posted, and I will do the same.

At least one tip: we used the IRIX 6.5 development environment, and a 7.3.1 compiler.

Oh!
And compile your own iostream library (libcio), including the different set of STL template files.
The latter I've asked an ex-NaN engineer to make available or document again... the libcio that came with our compiler was not compatible with the rest of world. (Talking about a year ago now, maybe that is fixed. At that time it was a reported bug at SGI)

Getting blender compiled with gcc nobody in NaN ever managed to do.

Sorry for the cross posting but I thought it should be
mentioned here:

Give the autoconfiged version a try you can grab it at:
http://www.linux.ucla.edu/~phaethon/ble ... oconf.html

If you have changes that need to be made.
just let phaethon know and he'll work them in.

(Right now its not autodetecting ssl and you might have to
do a little bit to get the python stuff to compile
other than that though it works great)

IRIX 6.5.10 and later incorporated the libCio.so file that was only available with mipspro 7.3. So,
this is still an option.

most bad ideas prove to be impossible (that's a good thing!)

I managed to compile with MipsPro, but not link. Compilation went without errors, or even warnings, so I bet I did something very wrong ;o)

On Irix we used gmake to compile Blender. gmake is the Gnu version of make.

Frank, i figured that mush, so i used gmake immediately. however,
the problem was that 'cc' was being given 'gcc' compiler arguments (unrecognized). when traced back the tools/guessconfig script failed to 'guess' the machine. i'll try again with latest code.

On the contrary, the Makefiles work on *all* blender platforms, including exotics like windows, beos, macosx.

no way, hans, else you wouldn't have had to help me fix them yourself :) once i install gmake,
and got a few syntax erors fixed, it's going well enough. I'm up to the python installation blackhole.

overnight blender compiled successfully on IRIX! it even ran. there are a few python issues due to having 3 different versions of python in stalled on the system at the same time, and switching between them in the middle. but that should be straightened out on the retry.

Managed to compile blender on my octane as well, thanks to a bit of Walton magic. It's buggier than an antfarm though! =)

OK being yong at this, what is the first step I should take with compiling for IRIX.
I downloaded the CVS.

Read the README file in the root dir. It should get you started
as well as the stuff above in this thread.
