The problem is I have no idea what is going wrong. I'm positive that the "ext/gettext" gets compiled. Also that these functions are included checked the #ifdef, even removed quite a few of them so the code would allways compile but it just doesn't work :(

Anyone with tips on what I might be doing wrong, they are very much appreciated.

Well... looks like that php configure havent detected your gettext installation and have build php without gettext support. Which php extension currently available in your build a phpinfo() can show you.

Its also possilbe to build the most extensions as a shared one. These '' can be load in php.ini or during runtime by using dl('') in the script.

You can compile loadable extension with the main build or in later step!

[o2k]:/usr2/MIPS/php-5/ext/gettext $ phpize
[o2k]:/usr2/MIPS/php-5/ext/gettext $ ./configure --with-gettext=/usr/local
[o2k]:/usr2/MIPS/php-5/ext/gettext $ gmake
[o2k]:/usr2/MIPS/php-5/ext/gettext $ gmake install

To load this extension the 'extension_dir' config parameter in your php.ini must match to the right dir.

After that you have these functions avalaible

At this point an eye goes to your

did an irix version came with the evo card? sgi says that you must install the irix version that cames with the card before installing it.



You need atleast the EVO base drivers (18mb, extra CD) and from your current overlay ($foo/unbundeld) the upgrades. You dont need to install a special version of irix first.

Thomas W. wrote: What do i have to do next?

read my answer again. There is an directory named 'unbundeld' in every overlay distribution. It contains the current videodriver for most of the videocards.
So point swmgr to the directory to solve the problems. You need the overlay which match to your current version of irix.

uname -Ra

You can find it under .

Be careful when downgrading IRIX. Older pre 6.5.16 versions have no knowledge of XFS version 2 filesystems and try to treat them as version 1 which fails. There is no tool for converting version 2 to version 1 XFS. Been there, done that.
Best thing to do is to reinstall 6.5.9 on a separate disk and try to copy the relevant files to a NFS mount or transfer them to CD...

Xfs version2 comes standard in the 6.5.6 timeframe or so.

I soon found foetz's builds of firefox and thunderbird, which I have already been using on other platforms because, well, firefox is better than IE, Safari, etc. Thanks, foetz! One thing I can't do yet in the foetz version of firefox is use "Send Link" to email a link by invoking Thunderbird, or create an e-mail button in the Firefox Toolbar. Can someone tell me how to install or enable this capability?


IIRC we already have a thread about the issue when someone clicking on an url in thunderbird and how to start FF than instead of old netscape or mozilla. The solution was to put some config value in the main configfile from thunderbird. I expect there is a similar for the other way too. When using 'about:config' in the address bar you can see a lot of settings. Maybe there is already one without the right value.

cjones wrote: Ok... maybe I'm missing something, and if so I apologize in advance. But glennmeyer's question in this thread was how to start thunderbird ... or more specifically clicking on a link in somebody's webpage to send a mail and have *that* open up a thunderbird message compose window.

We all have understand glennmayers question and i only have said that it should can works in the same way as describe in the thread hakimoto postet.

Specifiy URL:Mailto-Protokoll in the configgile and point to the thunderbird executible(or start script).

A long time ago i have enabled mozilla mail as my client in this way. "/opt/mozilla/mozilla" -compose %1

I dont says that this is the solution.... i only would show a way to find some :)

Hi All,

I downloaded Freeciv from Foetz directory.
bunzipped and untarred the file.

Then I thought to get it running I start it like this:

but that gives me the follolwing error messages:
1887:civclient: rld: Fatal Error: Cannot Successfully map soname '' under any of the filenames /usr/nekoware/lib/

Does any one have any idea where to put freeciv directory in the first place?
and which dependancies does it have?
Should I use (if any) SGI freeware or Nekochan freeware dependancies?

Kind regards,

The comes from gettext. So just install neko_gettext and be sure that you have usr/nekoware/lib in your LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH. Or as squeen already told you use the neko_freeciv-2.

Use the find command to see if the file exists on your system. When found it add the path to your LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH environment variable. If not send a mail to Eric.

I have create a neko_flightgear but my opionon is that it is not worth for release the package because the very poor performance. Or anyone know why my FUEL only runs the simulation with only 5fps?

FlightGear (like many OpenGL programs) uses features that the card supports. But this doesn't necessarily mean they are hardware accelerated. You could try to add one (or more) of the following options to your ~/.fgfsrc file:

In your case I suspect one of the following:



I used every --disable-foo which found in ./runfgfs --help. But the gfx looking doesnt change for me. Also the FPS dont increased. Looking to osview or gr_osview i can see that the cpu have 40-60% idle time and also the GFX isnt on its limit.

When using --enable-wireframe all the menus comes unreadable. I'll test your build next week when moving home again to see if i make something wrong.

I am in the process of porting the Zabbix Agent to IRIX, so that most sensors that work under Linux also work under IRIX.

Does anybody know if it is possible to access the information from the L1 Controller from an 3x00 machine or f.e. a Fuel from within IRIX? Some command I can't seem to find?

Another problem I have is determining CPU load. Parsing top isn't something I wanna do, since I think it's an ugly hack. Under Linux, I always get the CPU Load (and Zabbix does to) from /proc/stat, is there an equivalent under IRIX?


try the 'uptime' command to get the load stats. Irix have a bunch of statistics tools like 'sar' and 'pcp'. But you have to install it first.

sar - system activity reporter (chkconfig sar on)
pcp - summarize a Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) installation

With the later one you get pcpinfo which can be used in cmd line scripting to fetch the metrix data.

As already described in the german forum

setenv PATH ${PATH}:/usr/nekoware/kde/bin
and same way for the other vars. It would be wise to append the new pathes to the end of the already existing.

And btw. bash uses
export FOO=BAR

How to prefetch workunits? I also have the problem that there is not enough work for 24/7. The dnetc works much better btw. but the mips cpu isnt a outperformer...... :|

If I remember correctly, only the Windows, Solaris, and Linux versions of Oracle 8 were available for download...For IRIX, only the documentation was downloadable...

Thats right. SGI ships also for a short periode of time the o200 with a ORACLE DB but there was never something for 'free' download. We emigrate years ago from IRIX to NOVELL with our Oracle databases and 1 year later Oracle drops also this plattform. Now we have to use MSSQL and for the all web based stuff MySQL.

BTW, the final versions of Oracle for IRIX were 8.1.7 for 64 bit systems and 8.0.6 for 32 bit systems.

With some patches you will get

I found the project a few days ago and i have to rember to the good old time when playing the game on my AMIGA. OpenTTD is an rewrite of the game engine from Transport Tycon Deluxe which is open source and available for all important platforms. But the most famous platform was missing..... but today i have fixed this issue by compiling the code on IRIX :)

The projects home can be found under . It offers all kind of informationen and documentation about the gameplay. The very active community lives under .

Screenshots of the game:
Click on the image to enlarge.

For playing the game you will need some files from the orignal ( dos or windows version) which have to placed in the share/openttd/data directory. Im sure you'll managed to to get the software working after downloading from (take a look ;). Extract the tar file under /usr/nekoware . It creates a seperate dir which holds all the stuff. Some minor dependencies exits which can be solved when having neko_zlib. neko_libpng and neko_libSDL is installed on your systems. If you place the package to another location you have to adjust the shell script which works as an wrapper for the binary. This is needed because the game looks for its data dir in a relative way and depending from where you start it the files can't be found.

Main reason why there is no neko_openttd is that i have used gcc for compiling and not the mipspro compiler. Im sure there its only little tweaking needed to get it working with mips cc. But currently i have no spare time left. After adjust some pathes in the Makefile and makefiledir it compiles fine with gcc.

The games supports various screenresolutions and runs fast on my indigo2 and schleusel have also testet on his FUEL.
It comes with some midi like SFX for a proper feeling. I think its worth to take a look.

Currently i find out that the binary also can take some argument during startup. But i forget to bypass the arguments through the shell wrapper. So when some of you can support a better shell script i would like to change it in the tgz.

-c config_file      = Use 'config_file' instead of 'openttd.cfg'

You can also place a configfile named 'openttd.cfg' under /usr/nekoware/openttd/share/openttd/ . It uses a INI like style and the description can be found under

The manual can be found under

Reading through the forums i have seen that they used blender for modelling the gfx parts. Maybe some of you would jump up to the train and start contributing :)

Sorry if this has been covered.
I just installed the neko version of nedit 5.5 and the colors are all messed up. In particular the background color is black, text highlighting seems to work though. Any ideas?

Edit: maybe i should say a little more,
colors in nedit are set to SGI_DYNAMIC TextForeground for example. Are these supposed to be environment variables? either way they don't exist and so nedit is looking grim

Edit: Forget it, managed to sort it out, despit nedit not letting me manually enter colors in three of the color choice boxes

We have already a thread about this issue... but the easiest way is to define new colors and save these as new preferences. As colors you have to choose names like 'white', 'black', 'red' and so on.

Put the nekosync.conf into your /usr/nekoware/etc and try again.

I can't figure out how to make it compile there.

I have already replaced all the weird ar by CC -ar -o.
I have added to the line -lgen -lm -lmx to suppress some errors... but the lround remains.

Also I knwo it comes from <src>/src/dos/dos_image.cpp where I have added :
extern long int lround(double);
since it does not take it from <cmath>

No solution yet. The reason why lround() is not defined maybe is that its only available when using c99. But the source is c++ and so the CC is used. The -lm contains only a weak refererence to lround.

Add the following to your dosbox.conf


That brings the keys back. I tried it first by using gcc and get it working that i can mount my /tmp directory under c: . After find out how to compile with mips pro this wont work anymore.

Well.... the basic stuff looks like to work when using GCC for compiling. I placed a binary under the following address ( ) for those who are interessted in this. After the key works again i was able to produce a sample configuration file which looks currently like this one.

# fullscreen -- Start dosbox directly in fullscreen.
# fulldouble -- Use double buffering in fullscreen.
# fullresolution -- What resolution to use for fullscreen: original or fixed size (e.g. 1024x768).

Start the programm with ./dosbox /tmp" if would like to mount your temp directory under c:.

During playing with the inbuild capture (press ctrl+F5) function i hace recognized that the apps use a default 2x scaling. But disable this doesnt change anything speedwise, also playing with core cpu cycles and Frameskipping brings no improvement.

I can start some older games like stunt car racer, heros of might and magic2 or megaman but it looks without some optimization my 600mhz FUEL isnt fast enough.

I am wondering if there is a remote desktop software from Windows XP side that could control Irix O.S. or the opposite, to a local network.

For single apps or a desktop without a background and icons you can use normal X. (needs an xserver like exceed or win32.)

For a whole desktop setup an vncserver on your irix machine. But for controlling only a shell is needed. Keep in mind that IRIX is a unix like OS.

Yes the works.... but as previous boinc version it works like a blackhole. Dunno how seti work internaly. As reportet earlier the project have bandwidht problems and not enough WU for all clients.

Also a big problem is coming up after an outage. Must be the same like a Ddos attack :).

To avoid this the client sets a long timeout period befor start with reconecting. If you take a look into one of the XML file you can see a unixtimestamp value when the client connect next time to the network. I have to wait more than 24h :)

After this time my client starts download WUs. But running the client like in the pass doesnt work so good anymore.

As a notice. It looks like that it needs more time now to compute a WU.

In the seti Forum i have read something about a reference WU which can be used for benchmarking.

can you provide your patched how getting boinc/seti compiled? I would like to take a look of the use of non nekoware libs like zlib,libjpeg. If i can work it out i would like to create a neko_boinc package.

Thanks for your help.


Please verified that you have openssl installed which comes with the IRIX OS and not the one from nekoware.

Hello world !
Indy R5000 ? I'm always a bit lost with the status of this arch wrt compatibility.

Yes it runs also on r5k indys.

Thanks a lot to all maintainers for the work ! All of that is going to put several of my machines to a new life !
As a side note, I'd really be happy to contribute some of my unused mips3 horsepower to the compilation effort, but I have no MIPSPro license :( . If there is a way round that, just tell me...

Maybe a search in google groups may help you ;)

about your tests with mysql 5.0.22. These version was a security only release and it contains no other fixes like the patches with correct the behaviour with the using of the wrong signals.

For more information about this issue take a look to

Some time ago i have talk to Foetz about this issue and he confirm that all of his own mysql builds also effected. But he did not care if the problem and didnt create a bug report.

But its fixed in the bitkeeper cvs and with the last 5.0.24 release.

I hope you got something wrong. The only thing what i have ask for if its time to move the packages out of the beta directory. Nothing more and nothing less.

It might be possible that you build your packages why you need them for your own. Thats not true for me. I have build most of them by request from the community. The other half are needed because of dependencies or why i like to build something with all of the extras and not only a limited versions.

I don't really see the issue with apps lingering in beta for awhile if no one tests them.

If the beta dir is growing and the packages are aging over the time it makes is harder to create new packages, because you have to take care of versioning and dependancies. So from time to time we have to move the bunch of packages.

If i would like so see something in /current i would place it there.

This was from the mysql-5.0.7 version. It was fixed in the current package. But the files is marked as 'noupdate'.

About the other problems i will go and see if i can reproduce it.
