[Paraview] General Question SGI Virtu

Don't worry.  ParaView comes with a money back guarantee ;-)

In seriousness, I can't think of any particular problem that you would encounter with compiling ParaView to this platform.

I'm not sure if you want to use the computer to drive the 3 displays as a tiled display or if you plan to just launch the ParaView GUI and let the windowing system handle the display management.  Either way should work, I think.  You can use a pvserver to drive the 3 displays as a tiled display by running as an MPI job and giving each node a different -display flag.  However, I don't think stereo works on tiled displays.  I have heard one or two reports of people getting it to work and some patches were being passed on this mailing list at some point, but I don't think anyone has taken the expense to productionize that work.

Dear Paraviewers !

Right now I'm using Paraview on SGI Prism ia64 it works on my powerwall with stereo without any problems (exept I 'm causing it).
We are getting a new computer SGI Virtu by end of june with sled 10 SP2 Linux 64 Bit.
is it possible :-) to run paraview 3.x on this machine. I have 3 displays 0.1 0.2 0.3 as one screen displaying stereo.
Or any problems to expect.
