XEON & SUSE 7.2

Hi from a new member!!

Are there any know problems with XEON (PIV) CPU's and SUSE 7.2?
We would (and could!! :slight_smile: buy new a new Dual-CPU 1.5 GHZ workstation for
our Student Simulation Workshop.

Any comments welcome ....

Ciao Mathias Wambsgan�

You know that Suse runs a whole battery of mailing lists to
answer such questions? In addition to the normal hardware
support lists, of course. You might find an answer there just
by browsing through the archives.

Okay .... maybe my question was not clear enough. I definitly know that
there are
no problems with SUSE 7.2 and XEON CPU's.

But are there known problems with Radiance?

Actualy we run the red-had compiled binaries with SUSE 7.1 to fix the
problem with killed processes in case of large ambient files. That's the
problems I'm looking for!

That's a problem with a broken qsort() routine in the system
library, as I'm sure you have seen in another thread further
above (together with the official solution). It has nothing
to do with the CPU type of your system. If the OS runs fine on
your CPU, then so will Radiance.

Trash the sortambvals(0) call in ambient(..) (file ambient.c) and lo and behold, runs
cherry. Never saw the point of that routine anyway.

See ya!
