      I am sorry, I pressed the wrong key and the message was posted before I finished it.

      I installed pixie in my computer using rpm package, since I had met big problems in compiling the code.

      When I runned pixie for the first time, I got the following message. I am just wondering what this message means.

      Thank you.

      :~/ray_tracing/pixie> rndr myScene.rib
      Cannot read TIFF headerUnable open environment ""

      I got the scene file from http://filer.case.edu/rxm103/eecs466/pixieintro.html 

      Thank you very much.

      Do you still get that message?

      Thanks Gab.

      I tried to compiled pixie under Suse Linux 10.1 with gcc 4.1.0

      The compiler ate up all my memory and swap, and then failed.
      So I am just wondering the version of Ubuntu and gcc you use.

      Today I used a rpm package to install pixie, it seemes to work normally and the results seem to be correct, except many error messages provided.

      Thanks.
