AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

For being an MIT project, it's not the most intuitive thing to get going and it's really only portable-ish. I had to modify a few things to get it to see some defines set in IRIX's standard library.

Re: Compiling Zephyr - At my wits end

So do I just put -lcom_err in my LDFLAGS?

I wasn't really thrilled about it compiling static libraries, but that's how the makefile does it, and makefiles are still a little bit foreign to me.

Compiling Zephyr - At my wits end

I'm trying to compile MIT's Zephyr IM platform, and it gives me the error message below. I've successfully compiled it's dependency, libss, which works fine (I think). I hate this error message because it doesn't tell you anything, and I've read the man page for SGI's linker with not clues how to tr...

The R12k is a bigger module. You need a different mainboard tray to accommodate it, and those are hard/expensive to find.

LDAP authentication

So I have LDAP authentication setup on my network, but not sure how to get IRIX to use it.

Is there a tutorial somewhere for 6.5.30? Or can someone point me in the right direction?

Re: Making music with PureData on Octane 2

Hooray for SGI generated industrial noise music!! :D

One thing that has always surprised me about Irix is the lack of music software. You'd think SGIs would have lots of that.

Re: Intergraph Studio Z workstation for sale

I've kinda thought the Intergraph workstations were butt ugly. SGI didn't really help the design aesthetics either when they acquired them :p

In my fantasy land I have an Onyx2 rack powered by solar panels and using it for Softimage rendering. Maybe some Mathematica stuff.
