Configured as stone disk. Due the atachments are disabled I did a post in my old blog: http://unixverse.blogspot.com/2018/08/effect-spark-in-sgi-o2-r5k.html

You can see there my config.

ok so I finally got all the sparks and effects working on my o2.  Here is what I did.  

1.  I installed flame 9.0 on my o2, and upgraded S+W to whatever version was in flame 9.0
- this appears to have the effect of making Spark 7.6 work for me.

spark 7.7.1 still gave me a "VOLUMEMGT: ERROR initializing volume" error.

I came across this interesting file:


Code:
#1

Licenses for Discreet Effect (flint) 6.1.3 (and probably for Flame 7 too) should reside in:

/usr/local/flexlm/licenses/DL_license.dat

Dlgen.exe and dlgen2.exe work for most Discreet products on IRIX, you just need the proper sample licenses. Which one is correct for a particular software varies - just try them both.

#2
Edit init.cfg in the flame/effect directory to setup a file framestore.

Then startup effect/flame with the -vir switch to initialize it.

#3

After setting up your framestore you might get this error within flint/flame:

ERROR : VOLUMEMGT: ERROR initializing volume /usr/discreet/effect_6.1.3/file.fs

And this in the console:

Error - Shared Arena Creation: Resource busy at line 239, in /vobs/develop/src/libframestore/sharedArena.C

This might have something to do with the most recent IRIX updates.

To fix it just make a new file with "nedit":

/usr/discreet/lib32/libioSA.cfg

And add the following:

1782579200
33554432
48

I don't remember what this does, but it was cited somewhere as the solution, and it worked on my O2!


so I went ahead and created /usr/discreet/lib32/libioSA.cfg as mentioned above, and it solved my Spark 7.7.1 issues!

I don't have a 2nd disk in my o2 for a stonefs so I can't test spark 8.0 at the moment

Yo don't need flame 9.0 to install only S&W. Just open Software Manager and point it to the folder of the software. Then you can customize the instalation to only install S&W.

Yes it happens sometimes, but not always. Seems depending of how you have installed Irix. I used this trick one time but after a full reinstall of Irix and effect this error dissapeared on my O2.

yes you are correct, but I hear one can patch the flame binary (was in another thread) to make it run on an o2 so that's going to be my next project!
flame 9.5 and above is 64bit and wont run on an o2, flame 9.0 was the closest I had to 9.5

Seems someone repaired the permissions faults. I can download everything included the licenses folder.
