Problems Running Radiance on Linux Alpha (RedHat 7.1)

Greetings,

I have been trying to run radiance using the pre-built
binaries and some home-grown builds using gcc and ccc.

When I try to run the tutorial demo through rview (cut
and pasted from the man file), the rview rendering
window appears, says that rendering is complete, but
remains blank. The command line interface says

warning- no light sources found

oconv and getinfo appear to work OK, but the rview
program will only produce a blank screen.

The results are consistent on my ds20 and a couple of
xp1000s.

I was wondering if this was a general radiance issue
or one specific to the 64-bit alpha platform.

I'm running RHAT 7.1 on all machines.

Hi David,

Check your scene carefully -- could be something like a window that faces the wrong way because the vertices are reverse-ordered, or you haven't used the options exactly set in the tutorial.
