Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

As I understand it now, X11 applications deal with 'window system' events by running a single endless while-loop at the core of any programme. Not to get all nit-picky on you but it's actually a for loop... ;) What a lot of people do is copy the source code to XtAppMainLoop and add their own code l...

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

Just for funzies I dled the latest version of BX Pro from the ICS website (version 6.2), to see if it has support for VkSubProcess objects; it doesn't look like it has any. Hope to look into this a bit more this weekend, I find the thought of having an OO interface into Unix processes to be very ner...

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

I'll take a look at this when I get home tonight. The reason Viewkit's manpages are such total crap is because it was never supposed to be coded by hand, developers were supposed to use rapidapp, and then when they deprecated rapidapp they were supposed to switch to BX Pro. At that point SGI handed ...

Re: How do I fix this?! >:(

I've never used it but according to the manpage luit should be able to solve this: If you are running in a UTF-8 locale but need to access a remote machine that doesn't support UTF-8, luit can adapt the remote output to your terminal: $ LC_ALL=fr_FR luit ssh legacy-machine

Re: Is it Solaris 1.0 ?

According to Bill Calkins' "History of Solaris," the last release of BSD-based SunOS was 4.1.4, the first Solaris release (he doesn't mention a version number) was based on SVR4:

Re: Sunfire v880

I've got an XVR-2500 in my Sun Blade 2500 and I like it a lot, it holds up really well in 3D performance compared to the V12s in my Octane2 and Tezro but it's a little bit slower at scrolling 2D in really busy pages, for example a complicated Rose model. Basically it lags a bit more than the V12, bu...

Re: X11/Graphics Trouble Indigo2

Actually running startx, or startgfx or the like will just give me a black screen. Do you have to power cycle the system to recover it from this black screen? I wonder if you could telnet in from another host and see if Xsgi is running when it's in blackscreen mode (my guess is that it is), then yo...
