View Full Version : Linux OS for XSI

01 January 2004, 12:03 PM
I'm just inquiring into XSI for an interested party as a 3d suite for the Linux Platform, nothing more at this time. I realized that an XSI single license is rather reasonable now for a 3d professional seeking to branch out into a more industry compliant 3d app. And XSI seems to be more than adequate for most 3d media development tasks. Will XSI run on Versions of Linux other than Redhat? Will it run on SUSE or Mandrake, etc? I didn't see any other Linux OS options listed on the website beyond Redhat. Thanks for your help.

apparently it can run on mandrake and debian but will require some tinkering. check out the glib files - i think they are the important ones.

try then for some more info.

Hey Ja,

RH is the offical supported distro becuase it makes Soft's job easier when troubleshooting. My friend runs XSI on Gentoo and has done the same on Mandrake, Slackwear. I know of another person running it on Suse so yes it is possible.

As orion mentioned there is a current limitation which XSI can not run on a Glibc library higher than 2.2 (try rpm -qa glibc to see what your version is at)

Do a search on the Base as it has been brought up several times there.
