Re: How to build the Boost library 1.42

pthreads is supported on Irix, presumably you've seen this(?): I am afraid you misunderstood my post. I do know that pthreads are supported. In fact, the problem is that the MIPSPro compilers implement OpenMP not by using pthreads, but by the SGI-specific sproc mechanism, and sproc-s are not compat...

How to build the Boost library 1.42

I am porting a C++ app to SGI/MIPS that relies on the Boost library. I installed the Nekoware version of Boost (1.35) with which I can compile the app but I still have one issue and one wish. The issue: the app was parallelised using OpenMP which the MIPSPro compilers implement using the SGI-specifi...

VirtualGL+TurboVNC server on Irix, need turbojpeg

I would like to enjoy the OpenGL-based Irix apps remotely. I can get to the Irix desktop using the Nekoware VNC server and the TurboVNC client, but only the X apps run OK, things like Showcase won't show up. Which is no surprise, one needs an OpenGL-capable VNC server/client combination. Alas, the T...

Many thanks, off to eBay then (I sort of suspected it can't be had for free... :? ).

Looking for Octane2 demos

I would like to install the nice demos on my Octane2. I do have the Octane Demos V1.3 CD, but that refuses to install on systems with Odyssey graphics. Search on Supportfolio did not return anything. Google neither. So if there is a helpful soul anywhere among the Nekochan fans who has and is willin...

Re: octane2: unmanaged graphics? no remote X login?

Not necessarily the same as your issue, but I "gfxinfo" returned the "unmanaged graphics" line after I converted an Origin2000 into an Onyx2 <and tried to update the Origin2000 IRIX install for use with InfiniteReality graphics>. Apparently some essential file was missing or cor...

Re: octane2: unmanaged graphics? no remote X login?

Have you looked at the PROM configuration?


Which settings do you recommend to check/change?

octane2: unmanaged graphics? no remote X login?

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a 'surplus' Octane2 (V12 graphics) with Irix 6.5.22f installed. Unfortunately my old LG 577LH TFT monitor can't display anything when connected to the Octane2 (using an original SGI 13W3->VGA cable): "out of frequency". The machine boots OK, I can logi...
