System requirements

Adobe FrameMaker 5.1, FrameViewer 5.1, FrameMaker 5.1.1, or FrameViewer 5.1.1 for SGI running under IRIX 6.x. You must run the patcher on an IRIX 5.x or 6.x system.

Installation Instructions

To run the Equation Patcher:
1. Copy the fmr5.p01, fmr5.p01.patcher, and fmr5.p02.patcher files into the $FMHOME directory (the directory in which FrameMaker is installed).
2. Change to the $FMHOME directory and run the patcher script (fmr5.p01). For example, if FrameMaker is installed in the /usr/FMr5 directory, type the following commands to run the patcher script:

cd /usr/FMr5
./fmr5.p01

NOTE: You must have write permissions to $FMHOME (i.e., if FrameMaker was installed as the root user, you will have to be the root user to run the patcher script).

Additional notes

The fmr5.p01.patcher and fmr5.p02.patcher files are SGI executable binaries. You can run Equation Patcher if you are unsure whether the executable has been patched. If the executable has already been patched, the patcher reports that ./bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe has changed.

The patcher script does the following:
- Verifies permissions and whether the patch applies. If there is a problem that would prevent a successful patch, the script exits.
- Checks that ./bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe has the equations problem.
- Copies the original FrameMaker binary ./bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe to ./bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe.bak, unless a file of that name already exists. Copying the FrameMaker binary requires about 10 MB of available disk space.
- Fixes the equations problem in the ./bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe executable.

The sum of the unpatched executable installed on an IRIX 5.x or 6.x system is as follows:

FrameMaker, FrameViewer Version 5.1
sum bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe
42807 19699 bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe

FrameMaker, FrameViewer Version 5.1.1
sum bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe
18318 19580 bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe

The sum of the patched executable installed on an IRIX 5.x or 6.x system is as follows:

FrameMaker, FrameViewer Version 5.1
sum maker5X.exe
42811 19699 maker5X.exe

FrameMaker, FrameViewer Version 5.1.1
sum bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe
18322 19580 bin/sgi.irix.mips/maker5X.exe


FrameMaker 5.1, FrameViewer 5.1, FrameMaker 5.1.1, and FrameViewer 5.1.1 for SGI were tested only with IRIX 5.2 and 5.3.
