The collected works of jirka - Page 1

Hello all,

Is it possible to find any piece of software which is optimized for the R8000 CPU?
I mean freeware or demo software, preferably for IRIX 6.2.

I recently have returned my POWER Indigo2 to life (it has 64 MB RAM, 4GB disk, GR3-Elan, floptical etc) so it would be very nice to have any software to show machine's possibilities.

:O2: :Indy: :Indy:
Thank you for your interesting informations. I probably have to use the ATLAS in my code so I will try... (I have a small finite element analysis software)

Is your compiled ATLAS available somewhere?

Many thanks.

This output is from my O2:

Code: Select all

# ./scsimon /dev/scsi/sc0d2l0
Inquiry response: [SEAGATE ST318406LC      0108]
ERROR: Device does not support temperature readout.
Self-test data:

1: uptime=1h  code='bg short'  result='completed OK'

An 18 GB Seagate drive. Is it too old? :-(
Very nice. Thanks! ;-)

Intellistation POWER 265 :

It's 450 MHz box (single POWER3-II processor) with some 2 GB of RAM (if I remember correctly) and with decent gfx board. But it's off for now (because of its noise).

I have voted yesterday ;-)
Great game, many thanks!
By the way, I can confirm that on my O2 (R10k/250) it works very well!

Is is possible to use spacebar for firing, please?
Many thanks! (but I have to find a camera first...)
kshcsuf wrote: Hi guys,
I don't have an O2 camera; would you guys mind giving it a whirl and letting me know if you can capture successfully?

Hello and sorry for the delay.

Many thanks for the app.

I tried it with my O2cam (with the -o switch) and it captures something (I used the yuv file). But Mplayer refuses to play the saved file. Is it a normal behaviour?
:O2: :Indy: :Indy:
now I can confirm that it works great on my O2 (it's R10k/250).
Output is the same as Tomo's but without these ...F.F.Fs (only with .....).

Many thanks and best regards.

In a blue DV iBook with a fresh 10.3 install and a working wired internet connection, Software Update will time out and give error -1001.

You are still lucky. I did the same with my iMac G5. It installed the update but the iMac hanged after reboot. :-(

I finally downloaded combo updates and installed them manually step by step (10.3.5->10.3.6, 10.3.6->10.3.7 and so on).

It looks very nice! Can you please provide also the IRIX binary? I don't have SGI compiler and I'm not able to compile it here :-(
:O2: :Indy: :Indy:
geo wrote: Hi,
hi jirka! thanks! ok here is the binary compiled on my Octane. Not sure to ask this but if i compile it on Octane, its runable on any SGI right? or should it compiled on specific machines?

Thanks much! It works on my O2 (IRIX 6.5.27) so it must be 32-bit binary. I can even receive messages from the IPmessenger (I have tried the version 0.9 on my old PowerPC iMac)! Only the sending to that IPmessenger don't work for me.
:O2: :Indy: :Indy:
geo wrote: so I guess it doesn't matter which machine as long as the app is not particular with the bit width right?

I think so. It's mips4 binary so it should work on SGIs with at least the R5000 processors (it don't work on my R4400 Indy :-( ...)

geo wrote: this will let us know which has the bug, is it on my Motif version, or the other IPmessnger.

It is probably a bun in that IP messenger verison (it's a native Mac colne, not a Gtk one). I tried the X11R6 verison (xipsmsg) on the iMac and there are no problems with sending.

geo wrote: just imagine a file sharing to any platforms without installing anything, would be great right? :)
:O2: :Indy: :Indy:
geo wrote: hi everyone! just can't wait to announce this one hehe so before i sleep, behold: BETA 1.0 is here!

this includes:
* more stable
* enhanced UI
* most anticipated: VERY FAST download of unlimited files from any Windows that runs IPMsg

So who needs USB, SFU/NFS, SAMBA, FTP to transfer your files like pictures, CAD drawings, MP3s, movies from modern machines to our beloved UNIX if we have this very light tool ;)

As of the moment, this version only can accept files. Coming soon are:
* download folders
* sending files
* sending folders

That's nice, thanks! I will try to find a Windows box for testing... ;-)

I uploaded firefox 3.0.19 and it is available in beta now:

I named the package beta, because it has still a problem in the svg code I have to fix. But if you don't want to display svg graphics it works fine so far. The package will coexist with the current firefox2 release. You can start the new firefox with firefox3.

It is a gcc4.7 build and only a -O2 build on the current state. It based on the patch dexter1 developed three yeas ago. He was so close, but he interpreted the debug output in a wrong way and did not look at the right place. He had only to disable the complete senseless feature safe-browsing. Enjoy firefox3.
Fantastic! I will try it as soon as possible. Many thanks!

Thank you very much once more! I finally updated my O2 (R10k/250, IRIX 6.5.27) so I was able to install your Firefox 3... and it works very well!
:O2: :Indy: :Indy:

Thanks much! It works for me (O2 R10k/250, IRIX 6.5.27). I'm using it to write this post.
:O2: :Indy: :Indy:
Fortunately, I have only the 3.0 which i OK :-)

I can confirm that, a site which was problematic previously ( is now OK (IRIX 6.5.27, SGI O2 R10k). Thanks much!

I'm an active Vim/IRIX user, too. I actually use the Vim for most of my programming works... (I still use the Motif GUI version from the SGI Freeware)

Thanks! It works on my O2 (R10k/250, IRIX 6.5.27) very well! The framerate is about 15fps.

Hello, thanks for the port. I'm going to try it as soon as possible.
Ihave tried to run the urxvt. I have got some errors like this: 1628:urxvtd: rld: Error: unresolvable symbol in urxvtd: PL_stack_base

Can you please advice me what version of the Perl I have to use?

Anyway, many thanks for your work!

I used 5.8.9 from nekoware current

onyx:~> ldd `which urxvt`  =>    /usr/nekoware/lib/perl5/5.8.9/irix-n32/CORE/

Thank you very much! I had the old Perl 5.8.8 for some reason. I have upgraded it to the current one (5.8.9) and now the urxvt works!

:O2: :Indy: :Indy:
I have 3 of them (two in working condition, one is evem upgraded - a double speed mod and 8MB RAM)! :-) And I still use one of them (less or more) on daily basis...
