Re: Rebirth of my O2...(I'm baaaaaaack, anyone remember me?)

Welcome back and only 10 replies to this post!?

I don't know if you remember me or not. I am still keeping the Octane that I got from you, in the garage though. I got a baby girl too. She is about 7 month old so still no time to play with O2/Octanes in near future.

Re: Windows 7...

I am curious about what you guys dislike about the vista start menu? I am more a keyboard guy so I type words in the search box most of the time. I found this is much faster to get shortcuts and run them than the old clicking way

I am running win7 on a dell mini 10v. At least not worse than XP, except that the disk space occupied is larger.

Have you ever really really wanted to [xxxxx] but for [yyyyy] reason you just couldn't years ago? Now you can but it might not be reasonable. Will you go for it? Will you not?

Yeah I guess it's emotional too...

Re: Question: still worth buying a powerbook G4 12" 1.5GHz?

Thanks for all the inputs! Really helpful. I am fine with it being a little slow (not too long ago I was very happy with my Octane2 360, and before that a purple I2.) Also as people mentioned above the form factor of a 12" is attractive. New macbooks are great but they are expensive. Anyway we ...

Question: still worth buying a powerbook G4 12" 1.5GHz?

Hello long time no see! Never been an apple owner but I've always wanted to own one of those. Recent ebay prices range from $300 to more than $400. I am wondering whether it is still worth buying one for $300. I could imagine using it for internet browsing, occasional RDP to windows machine (possibl...

Re: Nekoware-current

Can anyone fix the inkscape package please? Based on the test from cybercow the simple fix works. Just need to update a soft link to point to the newer libperl.so ln -s /usr/nekoware/lib/perl5/5.8.8/irix-n32/CORE/libperl.so /usr/nekoware/lib/libperl.so I introduced this link and am pretty sure it is...

Re: nekoware inkscape on Indigo 2...

You can try to update the soft symbolic link. If this does not work then inkscape need to be rebuilt...

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/nekoware/lib/perl5/5.8.8/irix-n32/CORE/libperl.so /usr/nekoware/lib/libperl.so

Re: nekoware inkscape on Indigo 2...

I added the following soft link while I built and packaged inkscape_gcc. It was a quick and dirty fix to enable perl script support in Inkscape. I am sure it was pointing to an old version of libperl.so. It might help to modify this link to point to the correct one (usr/nekoware/lib/perl5/5.8.8/irix...
