Introduction

Prerequisites

Prerequisites

To support the HP VISUALIZE fxe graphics card, your workstation must meet the following prerequisites.

• Your workstation must be running one of the following revisions of the HP-UX operating system and have the appropriate Additional Core Enhancement (ACE) software bundle and Workstation Quality Pack installed:

— HP-UX revision 10.20 with the 9909 ACE software bundle (September 1999)

— HP-UX revision 11.00 with the 9911 ACE software bundle (November 1999)

To verify that the proper ACE software bundle is installed on your workstation, perform the following steps:

1. At a command prompt, type the following

/usr/sbin/swlist -l bundle | grep ACE

2. Scan the output for either of the following, as appropriate for your workstation’s

HP-UX operating system revision:

• The HP-UX 10.20 B6193DA ACE software bundle with the description:

Workstation ACE for HP-UX 10.20 (September 1999)

This line indicates that the September 1999 ACE software bundle is installed.

• The HP-UX 11.00 B3782FA ACE software bundle with the description

Workstation ACE for HP-UX 11.00 (November 1999)

This line indicates that the November 1999 ACE software bundle is installed

NOTE

Because the ACE software bundles are updated occasionally, the ACE revision date that is listed in the output may be later than the one shown above. For example, if the ACE revision date listed for HP-UX

10.20 is later than September 1999, then the proper ACE software bundle is installed on your workstation.

If your workstation is not running HP-UX revision 10.20 or 11.0 with the appropriate

Introduction

Prerequisites

Making Software and Device-Specific Changes

System Configuration

For important information on configuring your system for your HP VISUALIZE fxe graphics card, refer to your workstation Owner's Guide and your HP-UX documentation. If you are installing a multiple-display system and you will be using the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), refer to the Common Desktop

Environment User's Guide for important configuration information. If you will be using HP VUE instead, refer to the HP Visual User Environment User's Guide.

Special Considerations

To ensure that your workstation has the most up-to-date core operating system software, it is recommended that the most recent release of the Additional Core

Enhancement (ACE) software bundle be installed. In addition, if your applications are based on HP's implementation of OpenGL runtime libraries, it is highly recommended that you update your HP implementation of the OpenGL runtime libraries from the September 1999 (or later) application release, or from the

Hewlett-Packard web-site.

If you do not have the CD-ROMs that contain the latest release of ACE and the

Quality Pack or HP's implementation of the OpenGL runtime libraries, you can download them from the Hewlett-Packard website at this URL:

http://www.software.hp.com/

For information on installing ACE and HP's implementation of the OpenGL runtime libraries, read the documents provided with those products.

Steps for Making Software Changes

Each step is described below.

1. Read this Entire Document

Read all of this document. It contains information for product installation.

2. Check the Available File System Space

Before installing this product, make sure there is enough available space in your file system in

/opt/graphics

. Your workstation needs at least 133 MB of available disk space for all filesets and patches.

Introduction

Prerequisites

3. Install the Latest Version of the Workstation ACE Software Bundle

To install the ACE software bundle, execute the following command as root

/usr/sbin/swinstall

Choose the ACE software bundle and select Match What Target Has in the

Actions menu. Follow the standard procedure to load that software.

4. Install the Latest Version of the Workstation Software Quality Pack

To install the Workstation Quality Pack, execute the following command as root:

/usr/sbin/swinstall

Choose the Quality Pack bundle and select Match What Target Has in the

Actions menu. Follow the standard procedure to load that software.

5. Install 3D Graphics APIs

If you are using or planning to use any of the following 3D Graphics Application

Programming Interface (API) products, you must install what you need from the

HP-UX Developer’s CD.

• Starbase Developer’s Kit

• HP PEX lib Developer’s Kit

• OpenGL Developer’s Kit

The OpenGL runtime libraries are available from the latest DART Release or by searching for OpenGL at the http://www.software.hp.com

website

To determine whether these products are properly installed, try compiling and running an application on your system that uses one of the above APIs.

• Check:

/var/adm/sw/swinstall.log

Once you have completed the installation process, look at the contents of the file

/var/adm/sw/swinstall.log

. This file identifies the filesets loaded, identifies the customize scripts that ran during the installation process, and includes informative messages. Error messages that resulted from attempts to write across an NFS mount point will appear in this file and may be ignored.

6. Verify that the Software Installation is Complete

An easy way to verify that your installation is complete is to compile, link, and run one of your existing Application Programming Interface (API) programs (that is,

Chapter 1 11

Introduction

Prerequisites

programs created using HP's implementation of OpenGL, Starbase, or HP PEX). If you do not have an existing program, then make sure that you install the demonstration filesets that come with your API. When these filesets have been properly installed by you or your system administrator, one or more of the following demo directories will be created:

/opt/graphics/OpenGL/demos

/opt/graphics/PEX5/demos

/opt/graphics/Starbase/demos

You can run any of the texture-mapping programs in these directories to verify that the installation is complete.

Fixing Common Installation Problems

Fixing Common Installation Problems

This section describes how to fix some common problems you may encounter while installing the HP VISUALIZE fxe graphics card.

Note that there are several system utilities that you can use to display or set the graphics configuration for your workstation:

/opt/graphics/common/bin/graphinfo

allows you to display the current graphics configuration and the graphics drivers that are being used.

• opt/graphics/common/bin/setmon allows you to reconfigure the monitor type.

• The Display menu of the HP-UX System Administration Manager (SAM) utility allows you to configure the X-server and set the monitor type

Monitor Does Not Display

NOTE

Older monitors that have only 3 RGB connectors will not function with the HP VISUALIZE fxe graphics card because these monitors have no sync input except by sync on green. For more information, see the

“Prerequisites” section earlier in this manual.

If the monitor is not displaying on powering up, the system console may not yet recognize the new graphics card. Perform the following steps to reconfigure the system console so that it recognizes the new card:

1. Force the system to set the default console to a serial terminal on com1 by disconnecting the keyboard from the system and recycling power.

2. Interrupt the boot up sequence and wait until the Boot Console Handler prompt is displayed, then move to the configuration menu by typing co.

3. Display what graphics cards the system console recognizes by typing: mo graphics list

4. Select the monitor type by typing: mo graphics(N) # type

18 Chapter 1

Introduction

Fixing Common Installation Problems

where N = card slot, and # = monitor type

5. Set the console path to the graphics card by typing: pa co graphics(N)

6. Reconnect the keyboard to the system and cycle the system’s power. The system console should now display.

System’s X-server or CDE Does Not Come Up or Recognize the

Graphics Card

If the system’s X-server or CDE will not come up or recognize the new graphics card, the

HP-UX device files may not yet be set up. If you added a new graphics card or moved a current one to a new slot location, you may need to reconfigure some device files.

Follow these steps in order for HP-UX to recognize the new graphics card or new card location:

1. Place the new card in the new slot location and boot to HP-UX. It will not boot into

CDE or HP VUE, but it will allow you to login at the command line level as root.

2. Delete the old device files by typing: rm /dev/crt*

3. Create the new device files by typing: insf -ev

4. Finish booting to CDE or HP VUE by typing: init 3
