Obtaining the Orrery

To download the Orrery distribution, click on the link below. NOTE: You must have Geomview, version 1.6.1 or higher, installed on your computer before installing the Orrery. Also, although the Orrery will run on any Unix system that supports Geomview, in order to get the nice texture-mapped planets at any reasonable refresh rate, you need an SGI with hardware texture-mapping capability.

After downloading the above file, unpack it into your Geomview distribution directory with something like the following:
  % cd /usr/local/Geomview
  % gunzip < orrery.tar.gz | tar xvfopB -
Then read the file README.orrery.
