Re: Building GLchess on 6.2

I've been trying to get the patches to work, Netscape hates the SSL from github, so I used a mac and extracted the html, then ran patch. Excuse the first-timer stuff here: If you're getting files with HTML in them on your Mac then you're doing something wrong. To get the files directly you can open...

I also built the lot for IRIX 5.3 but the chess board does not show up on my Indy which has an XL24 card.

Re: Building GLchess on 6.2

I couldn't resist the challenge and with a bit of grunt work glchess 0.4.7 builds on IRIX 6.2. It seems to work fine on my Indigo2 which has HighImpact graphics, the texturing is nice and fast. I tried using GNU chess 5.08 but this just spins the cpu when glchess tries to make a move, going back to ...

Re: Bootstrapping open source stack on Solaris 7

I tried tgcware but there were no instructions about how to install the packages (which are built for Solaris 2.6) in http://jupiterrise.com/tgcware/sunos5.6_sparc/stable/ - certainly pkgadd wasn't interested. Just gunzip and use pkgadd -d. If you don't have gunzip then install the 'gzip' package f...

Re: beta alert

There are no compatibility problems between GCC and MIPSpro compiled objects. Thank you. Now I know why SGI went broke : they obviously didn't know what they were doing ... What you *can't* do is mix gcc-generated C++ code with C++ libraries, like Open Inventor, because the two C++ compilers use di...

Re: beta alert

It's not for performance reasons or even for a sense of purity ... it's because MIPSPro and gcc compiled programs handle libraries differently. Mixing and matching can lead to disaster. You have no clue what you're talking about. There are no compatibility problems between GCC and MIPSpro compiled ...

Re: beta alert

However initially the tgcware had a complicated patch-set requirement that was not fully documented. tgcware has since been recompiled with a smaller and better documented patch requirement That issue is more than 4 years old and only affects packages built prior to 2006-08-26. For the record there...

Re: beta alert

A package offering libABC ver 1.22 would have package ver 0x00000122, and a dependent package could depend on version 0x00000000 < ver < 0x000001FFFF. If ver 1.23 would already be ABI incompible (breakage) then you need a more fine grained system, e.g. ver 0x00012200 and dependent packages depend o...

It's one of several bugs in the IRIX strtod implementation which gnulib has documented:

Re: What HP/DEC/Compaq do we have.

Associated hardware like VR299 monitor (x3), VRT19 monitor, VT520, VT420, VT240 (x2), a couple of expansion boxes, DECserver 200MC (x8) and a ton of LK201s. That is a bunch of DECservers! Would you consider parting with one or two? Well they're completely untested so not sure what their state is. I...

Re: IP30 Lessons Learned So Far

DINA is built on NetBSD (4.0) which does not read EFS.
To read the CDs either IRIX or Linux is needed (atleast Fedora Linux includes this support, RHEL/CentOS does not).

Re: Hosed gcc?

Without a copy of libgmp.so.4 you're not going to get any further.
Lucky for you the current gmp in nekoware has a copy of libgmp.so.4 that you can probably use.
