Re: beta: autoconf 2.69

I'm uploading neko_autoconf-2.69_6.tardist to /incoming. It does include m4sugar/foreach.m4 (no Idea why that was missing, I seem to have neglected to rebuild the .tardist before uploading, my local .idb was already fixed), drops Struct.pm, which shouldn't have been in there in the first place, prop...

Re: sgi_led: Control your front panel LED

Hmm. Might have to see if this can be modified for Fuel.
I haven's tried it on my fuel, but it works on my tezro, although you have to be root - no error message is printed if the access is denied.

Re: Netsurf 3.1

i remember that it's been mentioned that some libs required by netsurf were compiled with g++?
if so that's a likely reason
If that were the case, it would already fail when linking, and not produce an executable at all.

The claim about the possible alternative cable in the Wiki is suspicious. Someone needs to verify my measurements.

Re: 80 pin SCSI drive in Indigo2 - how?

I hadn't thought the connectors were compatible with proper SCA - I thought they were inverted or something at minimum - but live and learn. Even so loose drives rattling around will work, but it's nice to use the sleds. You're going to be stuck with 10MBps SCSI either way. But if you secure the dr...

Re: upgrading ram on sgi indy, indigo2

I don't mean to quibble, but what do you mean "address lines"? that is not part of the parallel scsi interface. edit: on a SCA connector there are 4 ID pins, but these are not bussed, they are part of enclosure services. You're of course correct, there's no such thing, I just misremembere...

Re: upgrading ram on sgi indy, indigo2

The internal SCSI bus in an Indigo2 is of course an 8 bit bus, and therefore has termination for those 8 data lines and the 3 address lines that go along with it. At least some of the drives you linked to are 80 pin SCA, that implies a 16 bit wide data bus, with 4 adress lines. Those extra 8 data li...

Re: upgrading ram on sgi indy, indigo2

@jan-jaap - I have had some HDDs fail to work in an Indigo2. I have two different models of 300GB SCA drives. One model works fine in my Indigo2, the other doesn't. Both work fine in my O2 however, so there is a compatibility issue there somewhere! Some of the newer LVDS drives just don't support s...

Re: Netsurf 3.1

There's still the problem that you can't mix C++ code generated by g++ and CC, since they use different name mangling algorithms.

Re: usb audio

I don't think any specific chip is required. IRIX should support "any" USB audio class device, i.e. "generic" audio devices that doesn't require specific drivers to run.

Re: Pretty - a few new desktop backgrounds for IRIX

You need a prereq section that defines the dependencies. For example, in the neko_imagemagick package, the sw.eoe component doesn't work without the sw.lib bits: image sw id "software" version 17 order 9999 subsys eoe default id "execution only env" replaces self prereq ( neko_im...
