All SGI's running 6.2 or later will run both O32 and N32 binaries (not 
that on 6.2 the N32 libraries are installed by default).

On Irix 6.2, 6.3, the kernel and apps are O32 (or 64bit for servers).
On Irix 6.4, the kernel is 64bit, and the apps are N32. (irix 6.4 
doesn't run on an O2).

On Irix 6.5, the apps are N32 and the kernel is N32/64bit (for servers 
and octane).

Note, the O2 doesn't support 64bit even when its running the same chip 
as the octane (R10k).

You may have accidently compiled the apps as 64bit ? Check your 
makefiles, if there are no flags (-o32/-n32/-64) the look in /etc/

Purify does not support 64bit or Pthreads in Irix, and the threads 
implementation changed in 6.5 (cf. 6.4)

gcc 2.8.1 doesn't support O32.
