WTB - SGI Fuel power supply

I've had an SGI Fuel lying around unused for a couple of years now (work, life interfering with hobbies) and when I tried to power it up the other day found out that it won't. I suspect that the PSU is dead, so looking for a replacement it someone has one for sale - I know they're getting very hard ...

Re: Realsoft 3D, anyone?

Correct. I haven't been around much - work, new kid, life in general. I was maintaining it for IRIX but after failing to get a stable build of v6 and the Realsoft guys being unable to help since they have no SGIs left I more or less gave up. OpenGL code got changed in v6 and v7 and the changes cause...

Re: Streaming video from IRIX

I indeed worked on a port of DSS a few years back. I haven't unfortunately had time to keep it going especially since while some of my patches were accepted, others (to make it play nice with MipsPro) weren't which meant that I would have to re-integrate these every time. Work, life, etc. got in the...

FS: UK - YAMAHA CRW4416SX Ext. SCSI2 CD-ROM/RW - SGI compat.

I have for sale a YAMAHA CRW4416SX external SCSI2 CD-ROM/RW drive. 4x Write, 4x RW, 16x Read. Works great with SGIs like Indigo2, Octane - in fact I have used it with both. Already set up to allow you to boot from it to install IRIX if required. Selling it since I sold my Octane and no longer need i...

Re: vegetarianism and veganism

Ah, I love it when people with no real knowledge of the subject (e.g. diseases of humans / animals, etc.) find something on the Web and start quoting it to justify whatever their current beliefs may be. e.g. Toxoplasmosis. Yes, a lot of people have it and many other parasites. Parasites are successf...

Re: Amazing iMac G3

What is the problem with Apple software developers? Many Windows apps can still run on 2000, I'd say most Sun apps run back to Solaris 8, AIX is usually back to 5.3 or 5.1 - but Macintosh apps are almost invariably compiled for N-1 (or even current only), and Apple updates ~every 2 years. Often it'...

Re: Any Realsoft 3D users?

I have very little time to use it these days, but I help Realsoft maintain the IRIX port.
Currently working on getting v6 ported to IRIX. I can't provide an ETA for the release though.

Regards,

Nik.

That version hasn't been updated in years.
Once he won SGI's coding contest he never bothered to update the player any further.

Re: Editors for Children?

My vote goes to Nedit. Has smart indentation for C (may need to switch it on) as well as syntax highlighting for C, Fortran and Perl. Not sure about Basic but you could add another custom syntax definition file (or possibly download it from Nedit site). Works great on IRIX. Has shortcuts but he can ...

Re: basic language

BASIC really isn't useful for anything. Being one of the '80 generation, you bet right. Perl is just a way to learn how NOT to program. BASIC is plain, simple and fun. Children want to see/hear things asap and a BASIC with gfx/audio commands is strongly recommended. Forget OOP: not for children. An...

Re: basic language

BASIC really isn't useful for anything.
It might be better teaching him another interpreted language that has real-world use, like Perl, Python or Ruby.
All of these are available on IRIX. In fact, IRIX ships with Perl (old version, but there anyway).

Re: Does not exist

More importantly, without IDL and IDF you will not be able to compile anything on your Octane.

Re: Running JAVA program "ImageJ" on IRIX...

What exactly have you tried? Can you type out the command line you used and what response you got? I have v1.34 and 1.37 of ImageJ on my Octane (IRIX 6.5.27 but shouldn't matter) and it runs fine. I have Java in my $PATH so, to get it to run, I just cd to the ImageJ directory (where ij.jar is) and: ...
