SCCOPT_RENDERING_PREFER_OIT / GD Output Solution: How To Avoid X Server Dependencies With Outside In (Doc ID 760121.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Outside In Technology - Version 8.5.1 and later
Linux x86
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Linux x86-64
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (32-bit)
HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
This article is useful for any customers running the following Outside In products/components on UNIX:
- Viewer Technology
- HTML Export
- Image Export
- XML Export (if vector graphics are being generated, in addition to XML output)
- Search Export (PageML only)

The following products do NOT use X server and therefore do NOT apply to this article:
- PDF Export
- Web View Export
- Content Access
- Search Export (unless using PageML)

This article is NOT applicable to Windows users.


The purpose of this document is twofold:

1.  To inform users of Outside In about the availability of the GD output solution, which removes the dependency for an X server on 32-bit Linux (Red Hat and Suse), Linux x86-64, Solaris Sparc, IBM AIX 32-bit, and HP-UX RISC 32-bit platforms.
2.  To assist users who are seeing degraded quality of font rendering in the output generated by Outside In on these platforms, and would benefit from using the GD output solution instead of the X server solution.


This article pertains to users who are running the 32-bit Linux (Red Hat and Suse), Linux x86-64, Solaris Sparc, IBM AIX 32-bit, and HP-UX RISC 32-bit platforms version of Outside In libraries on these platforms.  This article will not pertain to users on other UNIX or Windows platforms.

For any users wishing to find out more details about the X server requirements of Outside In, please refer to <Note 552068.1> on My Oracle Support (MOS).
