Hi Adrian,
	I use IDL on a Silicon Graphics and had similar trouble recently
when the operating system was upgraded to 6.2 (which meant n32).  I had
to re-compile my C programs with a flag for -o32.  Then I was able to
use them in IDL.  Maybe this will work for you also.

I heard that the standard for SG  is going to be n32
in the future so PVWAVE will eventually be forced to comply with it.
IDL also isn't ready for it, as far as I know.
There was some discussion on this group about this a while ago (Try
doing a search for n32 and o32). This included someone who understood
the problem more than I.
