INFO: MIPS Libraries Required to Run SOFTIMAGE 3D

Last reviewed: July 10, 1997
Article ID: Q171196

The information in this article applies to:

  • Softimage 3D for IRIX, version 3.7

SUMMARY

This article is provided to help you determine if you have the correct libraries that are required to run SOFTIMAGE 3D (SI3D) v3.7 (mips-3 or mips-4) on IRIX 6.2. If you do not install the correct libraries, an error message reports that Soft cannot find the libraries.

The following example shows you how to determine if you have the correct libraries installed to run SI3D v3.7. For the purpose of this example, the library "libgl.so" is used, but you can use any of the following necessary libraries to run SI3D v3.7:

NOTE: If you install a mips-3 or mips-4 version of SOFTIMAGE 3D, then you are required to install the same mips versions of the following files:

  • libvl.so
  • libgen.so
  • libfm.so
  • libgl.so
  • libmalloc.so
  • libm.so
  • libc.so
  • libC.so
  • libCsup.so
  1. To obtain a list of the libraries on your system, enter the following command:

          %find / -local -name libgl.so -exec ls -lsa {} \;

    This is an example of a typical report:

       3640 -r--r--r--    1 root     sys      1861404 Jun  3 11:46
       /usr/gfx/arch/IP22NG1/libgl.so
       3288 -r--r--r--    1 root     sys      1682404 Jun  3 11:46
       /usr/gfx/arch/IP22NG132/libgl.so
          0 lrwxr-xr-x    1 root     sys           27 Jun  3 11:24
       /usr/lib/libgl.so -> ../../var/arch/lib/libgl.so
          0 lrwxr-xr-x    1 root     sys           29 Jun  3 11:26
       /usr/lib32/libgl.so -> ../../var/arch/lib32/libgl.so
    
  2. To find what mips version of the library files you have, enter the following command:

    %file /usr/lib/libgl.so

    This is an example of a typical report:

       /usr/lib/libgl.so:    ELF 32-bit MSB mips-2 dynamic lib MIPS - version 1
       %file /usr/lib32/libgl.so
       /usr/lib32/libgl.so:  ELF N32 MSB mips-3 dynamic lib MIPS - version 1
    
       If the report only contains versions of mips-2 for the above list of
       library files, then you must install the mips-3 version.
    
       Contact SGI to obtain these libraries.
