Faster launch times? Oct. 27, 2021, 9:06 p.m.

if you happen to have Arnold installed, it can **massively** slow down your startup depending on your startup directory. the autodesk licensing stuff will attempt to load every dll in the current working directory as it starts. quality stuff as always from autodesk.

i modified our launcher system to set $CWD to a blank directory and startup times were more or less normal (for loading a bunch of otls off a network share - that still hurts).

Houdini on Linux via VirtualBox Sept. 5, 2021, 11:17 p.m.

Hi Michal,

I've managed to get houdini working under virtualbox. I'm using mint linux (19.1) and houdini 18.0.532 (its an older setup)

i wasn't able to get it going with virtualbox's gpu acceleration, instead (i think) installing mesa for software opengl

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

it's slow and glitchy, but for occasionally testing some pipeline stuff it fills my needs.

cheers,
chrisg
