It used to be easier to install Houdini on Linux than on windows. Now that they've got the installshield for windows though, its about the same :).

ie, its pretty easy. Just make sure you're root, and goto the install directory and run the install script. In my experience of installing houdini I've had less problems with Linux installations than with windows.

But at any rate - Houdini 7.0.102 on SUSE 9.1 is excellent!!!.

While RedHat is the only officially supported Linux distribution, many people have used other distributions. I've heard of Mandrake and Gentoo as well.

it does work on my linux (mandrake10)
"houdini: error while loading shared libraries: libHoudiniDEVICE.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

does it work on fedora core ?

Because Mandrake isn't officially supported, you need to know what you're doing. The OdForce wiki attempts to document these issues:

Mandrake 10 and kernel 2.6

You need the following:libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 and you have to also set the following:setenv LD_ASSUME_KERNEL 2.4.1


For Fedora, I've heard that the RedHat 9 download for Houdini works.

Men, Where the hell did u find such an info that SideFX supports only RedHat Linux?! That's totally wrong as it supports Unix-based Irix and Solaris as well - it runs perfectly on SUSE, Mandrake, Gentoo, Fedoracore and others.

Did you ever get it to work? I have the same error in Gentoo. I tried the Assume Kernel statement, as I had to do that with my old Red Hat install, but it did not work w/gentoo. I know all those library files are there, in dsolib. So obviously when I am doing the sourcing w/ houdini_setup something is not doing what it needs.

If I do tcsh houdini_setup, it gives no output and returns the prompt. If I try the houdini_setup_bash it processes and outputs the normal "Houdini x.x.x environment set..stuff", but it just outputs the shared library error when I try to run houdini.

Anybody have any ideas?
