Houdini IA64 archived?

Recommended Posts

Recently I've acquired an Itanium 2 (IA-64) based HP system. I've installed Windows XP 64-bit edition on it, just to see how it works. I was wondering, is Houdini for IA-64 still archived somewhere? I'd love to try it out.

Thanks in advance.

I'm still looking for it. Did anything show up in the meantime?

Besides a maxed out rx2600 I've also acquired two rx2620s. Both with very recent dual dual-core, multi-threaded (hyperthreading), “Montecito” processors and with 24 GB RAM, two 10 Gbit ethernet adapters, 15K and 10K Ultra320 SCSI disks. One with a AMD/ATi Radeon HD5450 (PCI), so, a pretty interesting system for Houdini. (Both systems are normally used for VMS and, to a lesser degree, also a bit of HP-UX.)

if you installed linux instead, couldn't you just use the posted linux production build binaries as-is? :huh:

Itanium is a completely different architecture, compilers, libraries etc.

MG, don't tell me SESI doesn't have such archive!

Nothing that they appear to be willing to share (at least, not with non-commercial users and enthusiasts).

If anyone knows of a non-SESI archive, or backed up many Houdini releases over the years: Please, let me know. I'd greatly appreciate it. There was someone who had one or more IA-64 versions. But, he moved to Australia for work and he realized he left his data at home in the USA.
