McIDAS 2003 color consumption question



Hi,

We've noticed something peculiar on a couple of our HP workstations that we
recently upgraded from McIDAS 7.803 to 2003.  It involves the use of another
X application that monitors our Global Imaging ingestors...we used to be
able to run 2 copies, now we can run only 1.  I notice that the McIDAS GUI
seems more elaborate now than in the 7.803 version...is it possible that it
consumes more color resources (or some other X resource) than before?  Has
anyone noticed any similar difficulties?

Thanks,

Bryan

Bryan -

We haven't had any reports similar to yours, but you are correct that 
the GUI is more elaborate now than it has been in the past.  I talked 
with Todd, and he thinks that he should be able to reduce the number of 
colors in the GUI graphics, which may free up enough for you to be able 
to once again use two copies of your ingestors.

One question - Have you tried running McIDAS with and without the GUI to 
ensure that it really is the GUI that is causing the problems?  That 
would be helpful to know, just so we know the GUI is really to blame. 

Thanks, Bryan!  And sorry it took so long to respond.  Dave had sent a 
response internally that Todd had assumed had gone to you, so he thought 
the question had been answered, and I didn't follow up.  Sorry!

- Becky
