The information in this article applies to:

  • == Softimage Eddie for IRIX, version 3.5 ==


You might experience resource problems (i.e.: refresh problems, insufficient number of canvasses, and color resource problems or other graphic library widgets) when running Eddie on an OpenGL system. This problem is noticeable with processes that require more resources, such as the Paint tool.


This is an IGLOO bug. This limitation is documented in the Eddie README_MAIN.


This limitation and the solution are documented in the Eddie README_MAIN (for all details, please read README_MAIN line #40).

Complete the following steps to correct this problem:

  1. In your .eddie file, activate the EDDIE_MAX_CANVASSES environment variable.
  2. Increase the RRM_MAXRN limit and rebuild the kernel.
