To Whomever Would Help:
I have a problem with 'O' (ver 5.9) handling RE graphics. 'O' is
a graphics program written by Swedish (Welsh?) crystalographers.
I am trying to run this program on Power Series 4D-480 and 4D-310
equipped with RE graphics (4.0.5g).
I have tried 4D_os5 (also 4D_ono) on SGI reality engine, but still
get only a black window. On other graphics boards I get text
in the upper right hand corner immediately. It seems like I
am able to read a coordinate file in but it is not displayed.
The graphics board identification that I get is GL4DRE-4.0
(GL4DVGXT-4 is what I get on SGI VGX machine).
I have traded e-mail with Micheal Teschner (micha at chem10.basel.sgi.com)
and tried a fix he recommended for Onyx systems running 4.0.5g.
setenv ONO_GR_TYPE ONO_GTX
Micheal claims the problem is caused by the fact that on Crimson RE
running IRIX 4.0.5G and later the fog-linear commmand does not work.
I realize the OS upgrade is just around the corner but I need it
yesterday. If you need any additional information, please
mail limkx at ips1.msfc.nasa.gov or hargrjb at ips1.msfc.nasa.gov.
