Re: rdesktop 1.8.3

Nice one Trippynet, I'm hopeful for 24bit colour ? I've been doing some research into this. In short, it's not an rdesktop issue. The problem is that 24bit support was retired by MS in RDP from Vista/Server 2008 onwards. Only 16bit and 32bit are supported (well, technically Vista and 2008 support 8...

Re: rdesktop 1.8.3

Thanks Dex! Regarding 1.7.1, it's a toughie as IMO it does work fine. I suppose it could be moved to obsolete for now as it can always be moved back if anyone reports any issues with the 1.8.3 build. Alternatively, if enough people agree, it could be moved to current to replace the even older versio...

Re: Pretty good start in one go!

Looks sad to see a lovely Indigo2 buried under a pile of bits like that, but hope you can get the stuff working nicely!

Re: rdesktop 1.8.3

Foetz (or anyone else), is there another easy way of giving Pete a nudge to have this package moved from incoming to beta? I did drop him a PM, but it's still sitting in my outbox and hasn't been read yet.

Thanks!

Re: Looking for good software For PPC macs

My final year of secondary school in the UK was 1999. At this time, our main computer lab was still filled with Acorn Archimedes A3000/A3020s. There were half a dozen PCs in the library, plus a few 486s in the music room - that was it. Schools in the UK tended not to invest much in IT.

Re: Article: The Coming Software Apocalypse

Honestly, I can see the advantage of having a few IOT devices around. Controlling your heating system remotely could be useful for example so you don't needlessly heat up your house in the evening if you're stuck working late at work, or so you can turn the heating back on when traveling home from a...

Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

One reason I like WebKit is that it does away with the dangerously unsafe npapi still used by Firefox for flash. I really don't use flash often anymore but occasionally I find it useful, and for that WebKit/Blink have Pepper API which is much safer. Vivaldi is impressing me though, I may end up sti...

Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

My main browser at the moment is Pale Moon, a Firefox fork that doesn't have the Australis mess in it. It's not perfect, but it's Gecko based and pretty decent.

Re: Article: The Coming Software Apocalypse

Computers had doubled in power every 18 months for the last 40 years. Why hadn’t programming changed? I read that one line and instantly disagreed with the article. Computers have not doubled in power every 18 months for about the last 12 years or more. My main PC is from 2009. New PCs are not 32 t...

Re: rdesktop 1.8.3

OK, here's a tardist for rdesktop-1.8.3 - still the latest version at this time (ported using hamei and foetz's notes above - thanks for those!). I've also sent it through to incoming. I compiled it on my Indigo2 (admittedly with GCC rather than MIPSPro), therefore I can confirm it's tested successf...

Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

It depends. You can control Windows 10 updates much better in a corporate environment by using WSUS. If you're not doing this, the only other workaround I know is to stop and disable the Windows Update service.
