Hi Erwin, Nick here again.

Getting OpenEXR downloaded/configured/compiled/installed on Linux should be 
really straight forward.

If not, I'd like to know why so I can work with the rest of the OpenEXR team 
to make it so.

I have a suspicion that you may have run into trouble because Blender uses a 
non-standard header suite for OpenEXR. (Headers copied into non-standard 

I have a further suspicion that the reason Blender wants a non-standard 
OpenEXR is because of <> versus "" for #includes.

If so, once again, I'd like to see this resolved, so that Blender can use a 
standard OpenEXR distribution.

As an example of the benefits of using a standard distribution, the next 
release of OpenEXR does multithreaded compression/decompression and 
loading/saving; this greatly accelerates dealing with long image sequences.

Let me know!

>>What is the reason you do it without?
I disabled both OpenAL and EXR, otherwise Blender doesn't compile out
of the
box under linux.
Even after all the hassle of downloading,
OpenEXR it doesn't work.
